Good Morning All,
It feels like winter up here and thankfully it looks like winter too!
Trails are beautiful and it's only December 10th, let's enjoy it. I've heard from lots of you so we're expecting the trails to be skied plenty today.
It's cold still pretty blustery up here, we had some good winds overnight, so expect windblown snow on the groomed trails. The cat was able to get out and set track on some North End trails. Remember to keep an eye out for thin areas on the track. Classic skiers: don't take your best skis into the track today. Skate skiing you're good if you stay awake and watch for thin cover if you're heading up Upper Snows.
The kiosk is open in the Livermore Parking Lot for ticket sales and information today from 10-1:30, please say hi to Dan and show your support for our trails by buying a pass or showing him your season pass. The best place for groups to purchase passes is still the Center (and we have a fire too), but we're out on the North End if you get in a pinch.
Today fat biking can access the North End via Swans Way. There's enough coverage for fat biking, just not skiing yet, so go for a good ride and head out to our other Multi-Use trails: Village, Connector, Greeley Path, Deep Woods and Livermore (to jct 65), is good for today. If you don't have one of your own, our rental fleet is full. We have new & used fat bikes for sale. Fat bikes are pretty fun (a lot like riding a bike), they're stable, mellow and can get you just about over anything.
This year there are a few changes to the website. You can still view our events on the google calendar, and on the event calendar. We are also using TrailHub.org for our trail conditions. You can still use our website to see conditions but now you can use the TrailHub mobile app to get conditions updates and you can "favorite" trails, and get notifications when they've been opened, groomed or have notes added about them.
Also, join us at the end of the month for our Season Pass Holder Party, Friday 12/30 from 5pm-7pm. Refreshments, entertainment and a raffle are planned, so don't miss it. Our Swix Wax Tech will be here for the wax clinic at 6:00.
Should be a good day up here,
