And… We are back to spring skiing. We reset classic track on the 5k and 3k yesterday late afternoon. The heat scrubbed a lot out and we set it so it would be good for today. That means a glaze on the surface will make for fast skating and classic this morning early. As the sun comes out (maybe) and it warms up (definitely), classic will soften up and get better and better as the day goes on. Afternoon temperatures will be well above freezing again. Cold and humid overnight and the track is grooming well for skate and classic. Conditions might get sticky later in the day with the humidity and warm air. The 5km, 3km and Armstrong loops will be groomed and track set today. The Farm and dog loop will be touched up afterwards. Come share the Joy of skiing!
Red or even yellow wax and structure is the call today with the higher humidity and warmer temperatures again. We are open 9-5 daily. Please continue to be careful and ski within your abilities. 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! Go play in the snow, make a snow angel off the trail, share the Joy and enjoy what is shaping up to be another spring skiing day!
Great News Skiers! Bandanas Cafe at the Hotel Park City across the hall from us is now open until 8pm daily for your after-ski beverages, delicious 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!
If your skis are slow it’s definitely time to wax. White Pine Touring Nordic Center 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.
