White Pine

It is 8 degrees at 7 am. Please dress for the weather today. Another very crispy cold day. Bundle up with a buff and your good gloves! Weather is showing snow arriving again mid-day and late day with some higher winds. New mittens have been quite popular in the shop this week. Classic and skating will be adventurous when the snow comes but quite good. We received about 2 more inches of new snow overnight (9+ in 48 hours!) with some wind drifts in places. Skiing will be slow today with the track soft and the fresh snow. Skating will be good but soft and slow. Classic will be quite good all day. Come share the Joy of skiing in fresh snow! Colder temperatures mean higher performance blue wax and blue cold powders 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. We have 12km of skiing groomed this morning. We’ve started some trail prep work on the farm, but please stay off until it’s posted open. 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 open. It is frozen in the lower part. We’ve plotted out a shortened loop for the WCS Classic citizens 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. Go play in the new snow, make a snow angel off the trail, share the Joy and enjoy the day!
