We're still just in the start of our winter-like temperature spell. All weekend will be rather chilly, so make sure to bundle up.
All open trails are skiing on yesterday's groom and we got a dusting to an inch of snow. Should be fun and fast--yesterday the snow was loose granular. It's firmed up some and is speedy. If you've been out a few times this season, do yourself and your skis a favor and wax them!
North End coverage is excellent. The South End is good too, but please use care on Lower Fletchers and Sloppy Joes. Lower Fletchers is best skied up (open waterbars), so do the loop counter clockwise. So fun to be skiing down here at the beginning of January! I took my new skis out and they came back unscathed from a little South End trail check yesterday--but use care still.
See you up here,
Notes and Events:
This Saturday is our first Nordic Kids of the season, bring your little one at 9:00 for beginners and 10:15 for intermediate kiddos. This season we will have a weekly fun race at 11:30 for all kids (participants or not).
The first of our 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.
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.
