31 degrees and 3 inches of fresh snow this morning. All 20km are open, it will be soft and slow this morning with the fresh and wet snow. It snowed most of the day yesterday. We were just high enough in elevation to be in the snow band. It was raining not far away. The snow bunnies should be happy today in the fresh snow. We’ll be doing a roller pack and light touch grooming for skate and classic today. Classic will be good today. Conditions will be staying slow and soft through most of the day with the fresh snow. Watch for a couple of icy areas from all the moisture that has been in the snow from last week. Skiing should be pretty good all day for skate and classic. Stay flexible, aware and ski with Joy!
The 5km, 3km and Armstrong loops will be groomed first today. The Farm and Dog Loop will be rolled and packed to compress the surface but not track set after the core trails are finished. If you go out to the Farm, ski with care and enjoy the arrival of winter. The trails will be soft and it will be quite a workout.
Please purchase your pass and wear it. Watch for elk on the Farm. Red/purple wax and structure today. Please continue to be aware, 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 adventure, say Hello on the trail and enjoy what should be a very nice ski day!
Saturday’s Wasatch Citizens Series Classic race will be held at the Farm at White Pine Touring Nordic Center. Parking is available at St’ Mary’s Church, Meadows Drive and the Farm Trailhead across the highway (walk through the tunnel to get to the trails for the race) The social hall and indoor restrooms will not be available for warming and registration this week because of a prior reservation at the church. They are accommodating us on short notice and be sure to give them a huge thank you for being so supportive of the ski community. Bib pick up and portapotties will be in the parking lot of the church Saturday morning beginning at 8:30 am.
