White Pine

Could Winter be here? About 1.5 inches of good dense snow since Thursday. We’re able to reset classic in most places and we’ll be watching to see how the expected snow tonight goes. The forecast calls for snow arriving tonight with some breezes and several inches. Fingers crossed! Cold temperatures today but some sun expected too. Skating will be very good. Classic should be quite good all day with the new snow. Come share the Joy of skiing. Colder temperatures mean higher performance blue wax 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. A good resurfacing groom this morning and an update of the established classic track should make for a great day out. 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 partially ok-ish. It is tracked out with walkers and flooded/frozen 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! Get a jump on your New year’s fitness resolution with the gift of a lesson!

Be sure to thank our incredible groomers when you see them. Lou, Roch, Matias, Mark, Todd, Joaqiun, Camille, Candela and Julian have been working extremely hard to make your ski experience the best it can be. And they have been shoveling for hours each week and doing a great job. None of that track and morning groom 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 snowflake.

The Wasatch Citizens Series classic race at the Farm scheduled for today, Saturday January 6th has been rescheduled to Saturday January 13th. Registration is online at utahnordic.org Parking and bib pick up will be at St. Mary’s Church. Please carpool as much as possible and park responsibly. This and all WCS races have banned fluorinated (HF and LF) waxes. Stay tuned and pray for some serious snow.

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

Great News Skiers! Bandanas Cafe across the hall from us is now open until 8pm daily for your after-ski beverages, pizza and pasta. Now you can ski until sundown and then have a relaxing place to snack while you’re waiting for traffic on the highway to thin out! It’s better to eat pizza and ignore traffic than sit in traffic and wish for pizza.
