To those of you wondering, it was very warm yesterday and today is promising to be a another spring-like day, but instead of sunshine, we are expecting rain. Some people call it clear precipitation, but the fact of it is that warmth and rain don't do anything good to our trails.
We have closed the South End, including Swan's Way. The North End remains open and ungroomed, though I expect to be closing additional trails this morning to preserve the snow we have.
The less we compact the snow with foot travel, skis, snowshoes, and bikes the more likely we can making a great skiable surface again.
The temperatures look good and cold for friday night and though it would be best if we gave things a day to dry and freeze up, we need to be skiing for the weekend! So much going on up here.
All events and programs are still on the books, locations may be modified, so when you come into the center, please make sure you know where to meet your instructor!
Please call us with any questions.
See you up here,
Notes and Events:
In case you haven't heard, we have a "Lesson to Season Pass" promotion on this season. Purchase and complete 5 group or private lessons (price varies) and you earn a Nordic Season Pass. This is a great way to take on a new sport. If you're already a skier, take 5 private lessons, bump up your skills and get a pass to boot!
And, the first of our annual Women's Clinics is scheduled for the following Saturday 1/14 9-4:30. This is a great way to get started with the sport or work with our advanced instructors to improve your technique. Grab a friend and spend the day with us. Two on-snow clinics are followed by yoga and a "Wine and Wax" clinic. Second Annual Swix Trunk Sale. Call to pre-register and reserve your place.
Also on 1/14 is Kris Freeman's Advanced Skate Clinic 10:00-11:30. These clinics are for intermediate and up. You don't have to keep up with Kris, but you do need to be able to ski. His clinics are a fantastic place to learn what Kris does and what you can do to move better and faster.
1/14 Salomon, Atomic and Fischer Ski Demo 9-3pm. Try before you buy. Try just because new skis are fun.
