Without question it is definitely winter now. Please dress for the weather today. Another snowy cold night with mixed high winds. More snow expected tonight after clearing this morning. Mid morning to mid afternoon should be blustery and breezy but nice. Wind drifting of classic track will be happening all day. Keep an eye on the weather, this storm cycle has been quite interesting. Bundle up with a buff and your warmest gloves! Classic and skating will be adventurous but quite good early. 9-12″ of snow overnight, windy, drifted conditions overnight and this morning. 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. The more you ski the better the classic track will hold. 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 and keep an eye on the weather. We will have 17km of skiing groomed this morning. We’re running every piece of equipment to keep up with the wind. 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 and a portion of the Farm. The dog loop is ok but drifted. It is frozen in the lower part. We’ve plotted out a 3km loop for the WCS Classic citizens race on Saturday. 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 or snowperson off the trail, share the Joy and enjoy what might be a breezy but beautiful day!
Be sure to thank our incredible groomers when you see them. Lou, Roch, Matias, Mark, and Todd 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. Especially on a day like today.
