White Pine

Almost the same as yesterday, but even warmer. Endless spring conditions continue on today. Be careful early. Crust cruising should be epic again today. That means very fast and very firm early crust and getting softer through the day as temperatures climb into the mid 40’s today. Prime skiing on the trails will be between 9:30 and about 2. Icy before that, softening and some slushy conditions after. Sunny skies predicted today so wear your protection. Watch for icy patches on trails, walkways, parking lots and elsewhere early. Remember you have ski boots on! Warm temperatures yesterday and cold early morning means we’ll have a hard packed surface underneath the fresh crumble. Conditions may get very soft and/or sticky later in the day when the snow transforms. The 5km, 3km and Armstrong loops will be groomed first today. The Farm and dog loop will be touched if needed. Watch for elk on the Farm. Give them space and ask them nicely to quit walking on the track. Come share the Joy of skiing! Blue wax early, then Red/purple or maybe even yellow and structure later today. We are open 9-5 daily. Please continue to be careful and ski within your abilities. 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! Come play in the snow, share the adventures, say Hi to everyone and enjoy what is shaping up to be another lovely Spring Skiing day!
If your skis are slow or sticking, 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.
Get your Boulder Mountain Tour skis in for waxing early if you want our race service before you head up to Sun Valley. Be planning for your Birkie race wax timing too! If you’re waxing your own skis we have all the fastest non-flouro waxes and sprays in stock including Swix Marathon!
