White Pine

Happy Groundhog Day!? Hoping the legend is completely wrong since we’ve had spring almost every day since December. It’s feeling a lot like late March today. Sightly different conditions today, wet snow-rain mix as the clouds come and go. Not cold overnight so we’ll be doing snow saving grooming again today. All 22km are open. Fast and softening conditions. Conditions may be getting softer through the day depending on how snow and temperatures go. Prime skiing should be between 9:30 and about 1:30, but subject to change. Stay flexible and ski with Joy! Warm temperatures yesterday and the rain overnight means we’ll have a wet packed surface during the day. Conditions may get soft and/or sticky in places later in the day. The 5km, 3km and Armstrong loops will be maintenance groomed first today. The Farm and dog loop will not be groomed until some of the water drains down out of the surface or gets covered by more fresh snow. 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! Red/purple wax and structure later today. Maybe yellow wax with the wet. 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 a delightful, if damp, ski day!
