White Pine

Another very refreshing day today. Bundle up with a buff and your good gloves! Weather is showing snow arriving mid-day with some wind. Bundle up and come early for skating. Classic and skating will be adventurous when the snow comes. We’re able to reset shallow classic in most places and resurfacing the skate deck this morning. Skating will be good but slow with the cold. Classic should be quite good all day. Come share the Winter Joy. Colder temperatures mean higher performance blue wax and even blue powder should be running well. We are open 9-5 daily. Please continue to be careful and ski within your abilities. Ski with awareness through the day and into the afternoon and keep an eye on the weather for the next several days. We have 12km of skiing groomed this morning. 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/frozen in the lower part. We’ll be taking a look at the farm to plot out a shortened loop after this storm cycle and for the WCS classic technique race on Saturday. Summer uses created quite a few water challenges we need to work around. Wax cards and all of the waxes from basic to super fast are in the shop. Come play in the new snow, share the Joy and enjoy the day!

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 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.

The Wasatch Citizens Series classic race at the Farm scheduled for 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 for trail info and hope the weather service nailed this forecast!
