Happy February! A breathtaking sunrise this morning. Sightly different conditions today, maybe a little weather coming tonight. Not so cold overnight so we’ll be doing snow saving grooming again today. All 22km are groomed and open with really great skiing. Fast and firm early, and hard packed classic tracks early. Conditions will be getting softer through the day as temperatures climb into the 40’s yet again. 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 in places later in the day when the snow transforms. The 5km, 3km and Armstrong loops will be maintenance groomed first today. The Farm and dog loop will be maintenance groomed later in the day if needed. Farm skiing was incredible yesterday. Please purchase your pass and wear it. 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 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!
