White Pine

What?!?! Maybe those snow dances are working! A small amount of actual snow falling from the sky! About 1/2 inch of good dense snow will make for a great ski day. We’re able to reset shallow classic in most places and we’ll be shoveling thin spots all morning. Thank your groomer! Come share the Joy of skiing. We are open 9-5 daily. Cooler today with mixed clouds. Please continue to be careful and ski within your abilities. Early conditions will be hard pack under the new snow and fairly fast. Ski with awareness through the day and into the afternoon. Just a light resurfacing groom this morning and an update of the established classic track will help with classic conditions today. There is not enough snow depth to reset deep classic track and parts remain intermittent. Red or purple wax today. Skating will be good all day. Classic will be a bit better than most of the last week.

We have 12km of skiing open. Remember to ski with care, those thinning spots, icy spots and exposed areas are still close to the surface. Please ride the bus, micro transit, carpool, skateboard, cycle, e-bike or walk if you can. Parking is available all around the hotel and underground but everything you can do to reduce single driver trips helps! We’ve groomed the 3k, 5k and Armstrong. The dog loop is ok-ish. It is tracked out with walkers and flooded in the lower part. Wax cards and all of the waxes from basic to super fast are in the shop. Go play in the remaining snow, share the Joy and hope the forecast is good for the weekend! Get a jump on your New year’s fitness resolution with the gift of a lesson!

We still have a coupe of spots in our Mens Beginner Skate Clinic. Every Sunday in January 12:30 pm to 2:00pm! Call us to register!

TOKO waxing clinic Friday January 5th at 3:30 pm. Basic glide waxing and skin ski treatment. $10 charge. Discounts on TOKO products for attendees (and maybe a coupe of giveaways too) No preregistration required.

Be sure to thank our incredible groomers when you see them. Lou, Roch, Matias, Mark, Joaqiun and Julian have been working extremely hard to make your ski experience the best it can be. And they have been doing a great job. None of that track and morning grooming happens by accident. And please if you see a stick, pinecone or willow branch on the trail, flick it off the trail. We want to preserve every single flake!

If your skis are slow it’s definitely time to wax. White Pine Touring is a Flouro Free zone. No HF, LF or PFC waxes are allowed by county ordinance and common sense. If you have old Flouro waxes bring them in to the recycling bin in the shop and we’ll give you 25% off Flouro Free high performance replacement sprays and hard waxes. Let’s do our part to maintain drinking water quality and health.

Ski safe, be kind and enjoy!
