Warm Days Continued

Good Morning,

It felt like April yesterday and today will be similar, though with a bit more cloud coverage by mid-day. It's warm right now, a little breeze blew through the night helping to cool down trails. We're expecting another warmish day, with some precip in the afternoon. We have plenty of snow, so after it dries out and cools down (tonight or tomorrow), everything will groom up again nicely.

As it was quite warm last night, some trails were left alone and are skiing slick on yesterday's groom. Others were snowmobile groomed to clean up the skate lanes and this morning, as the trails firmed up, we were able to get the cat out on some.

On the North End, the Livermore side is all snowmobile groomed, along with some of the Tripoli/Osceola side. The cat went up Tripoli Rd and then down to the South End via Swan's Way and was able to groom the core trails down here.

Due to the mixed groom and changing temps, skiing will be lovely in some places and a little adventure in others. By yesterday afternoon snow had only transformed in the sunny spots and otherwise became pretty firm and greasy. It will be an adventure to pick a kick wax for the day, good luck to you out there!

See you up here,

Leah

Warm Days Ahead

Good Morning,

It's still nice and cool right now, but we are expecting a couple pretty warm days ahead of us, so ski early! Look like we'll won't drop below freezing until Sunday night/Monday morning. So, be ready for some soft snow!

This morning all North and South End trails are groomed for skate and classic. Trails are nice and firm, and both skating and fat biking should be good before 12:00. Once the temps increase and the sun comes out, expect areas of transforming snow and some soft trails!

Today Salomon and Atomic are at the Center and will be demo-ing skis all day. We also have our Women's Clinic and our usual Nordic Kids programming.

Friday

Good Morning,

It's a brisk day up here, temps will be on the mild side, but we're expecting gusty winds throughout the day--use caution and head to the woods.

All South End and most North End trails are groomed this morning. The remainder will be groomed during the day, though Tripoli Rd may not get hit again until this afternoon--so if you're looking for a powder ski it has a couple inches of yesterday's snow still on it.

Tomorrow is the start of the MA Vacation and we've got a couple busy weeks a head of us. Tomorrow regular programming (Nordic Kids) is on along with a Women's Clinic. Salomon and Atomic will be here with ski demo's too, so come try some new skis!

Plenty of Powder

That's the saying of the day--there is plenty of snow up here, the last bit fell warmer and heavier, so there's some density to it (so don't try skating where it isn't groomed!)

The snow fell steadily through the night and on some of this morning's groom. A fair amount of trail will remain ungroomed through the day, though we will buzz some with the snowmobile until the Cat comes back out this afternoon. Check the snow report for details.

This morning the cat groomed all of the Tripoli side trails (again, probably 1-2 inches fell over some of it) and then headed down to the South End via Swans Way to groom the core trails down here. The snowmobile may do a run up Lower Snows and down Livermore, otherwise the Livermore side will be groomed tonight.

We expect all trails to be cat groomed tomorrow.

More to come

 

Good Morning,

That's right, more snow is coming. It's started to lightly snow and we're expecting a fair amount to fall between now and tomorrow when it lets up.

If you're skating, do it early! Otherwise, yet again, it will be a lovely classic ski day.

All trails are groomed this morning and the Cat will be finishing up on the South End and then spend the rest of the day (unless it gets too warm) grooming the North End to keep some corduroy and fresh tracks out there.

The Center will be busy with a Silver Streaks clinic and it's PSU day!

A Between Day

Good Morning,

It's the in-between-storms-day, ski, ski, ski if you can. The temps will be pretty mild as we look toward a warmer storm coming in tomorrow. It should be as good as it gets, it's been a long time since we've been xc skiing with this much snow below us.

North End trails are all groomed, and the trails that have been groomed twice since the storm (particularly Livermore Road, maybe the Tripoli Side, Swans Way, core South End trails),  should be firm enough for pleasant skating, I know a bunch of you were out yesterday, hopefully today will be a touch faster. Still great classic conditions, though.

See you up here,

Leah

Snow :)

Good Morning,

Snow, snow, snow and smiles. It snowed and blew all through the night and we picked up around 12" (watch for knee deep drifts!).

The Cat has been out grooming and packing on the Tripoli/Osceola side on the North End. Core South End core trails have been groomed via Swan's Way. During the day the Cat will spend time on the Livermore Side and come back down to the South End down Lower Snows and the Golf Course.

It's going to be a bit messy out there until things have settled and been groomed again--there's a lot of snow!

Even if you're on fresh groom, today is another good day to classic ski--it seems to be the season for it! Should be good and firm by tomorrow for skate skiers to have some fun too.

See you up here,

Snowy Sunday Too!

Good Morning Skiers,

We are again 100% open and groomed for skate and classic, and again (like yesterday), we're going to get snow through the day. It's looking heaviest toward mid-day and on, so come early and/or enjoy the powder the rest of the day.

Yesterday was amazing, inches of fluff on the fresh groom--we had raving review of fantastic skiing (a bit of extra work for the skate skiers by the afternoon!)

Like yesterday, we will have the snowmobile out as snow accumulates--Just remember, we have 70km or so and the little snowmobile can't be everywhere at once!

I suspect by late morning skaters should switch to classic skiing and trails will close for fat biking as well.

To help any of your skate-skiers who have any interest in performance classic skiing, check out our ski sale.  End of season prices going on now:

Let's see what the day brings,

Leah
