White Pine

Maybe those snow dances are working! About 1 inch of good dense snow yesterday made for a great ski day. We’re able to reset shallow classic in most places and we’ll be watching to see how the expected snow today goes. The forecast calls for snow arriving late morning with some breezes. Skating will be very good, possibly getting a little more challenging if the snow comes in heavy later today. Classic should be quite good all day with the new snow. Come share the Joy of skiing. Colder temperatures mean higher performance blue wax or purple should be running well. We are open 9-5 daily.

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 and keep an eye on the weather. Just a light resurfacing groom this morning and an update of the established classic track will help with classic conditions today. We have 12km of skiing open. Remember to ski with care, those thinning spots, icy spots and exposed areas are below 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 new snow, share the Joy and enjoy the weekend!

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.
