White Pine

Finishing up our second month of spring skiing today! The same conditions as yesterday. All 22km are groomed and open with great skiing. Joyful spring skiing conditions. We are continuing with very light touch maintenance grooming until it snows again and/or the temperatures drop in the next few days. That means very fast and very firm early, great crust skiing off the trail and hard packed classic tracks early. Conditions will be getting softer through the day as temperatures climb into the 40’s again today. Prime skiing will be between 9:30 and about 1:30. Icy before that, softening and some slushy conditions after. Warm temperatures yesterday and cold early morning means we’ll have a hard packed surface underneath the fresh crumble most of the day. Conditions may get soft and/or sticky later in the day when the snow transforms.

The 5km, 3km and Armstrong loops will be maintenance groomed first today. Watch for the moose on the 3km. We’ve seen the tracks but not the moose. The Farm and dog loop will be maintenance groomed next. 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. 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!

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, wine, 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! We also have discount coupons for evening dining there!

Get your marathon skis in for waxing early if you want our race service before you head out to the big races. Be planning for your Birkie race wax! If you’re waxing your own skis we have all the fastest non-flouro waxes, powders and sprays in stock including Swix Marathon, Swix Top Speed and all three Toko HP Powders!

Enjoy the sunny day!
