White Pine

Heavy snow falling at 8 am. The fresh groom is getting covered so come out and help ski it in. We’ll be keeping on top of the 3km early then back to the 5k as the storm lets up. We are just on the right side of freezing again so we’re getting snow instead of scattered sleet. More snow on the trails. All 22km are open, it will be soft and slow again this morning with the fresh and wet snow. It snowed most of the day yesterday without much new depth. We’ll be doing a roller pack and grooming for skate and classic today. Classic will be good today and skate should be firmer through the day than it was yesterday as the storm passes. Conditions maybe slow and soft through most of the day with the fresh snow coming and going. Watch for a couple of icy areas on trails and walkways from all the moisture that has been around this week. Stay flexible, aware and ski with Joy! The 5km, 3km and Armstrong loops will be groomed first today. The Farm and Dog Loop will probably not be groomed and classic track set until tomorrow with the snowcat. If you go out to the Farm, ski with care and enjoy the arrival of winter conditions. 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 to the bunnies and ducks and enjoy what should be a very nice but a bit blustery ski day!

The Wasatch Citizens Series Race will be at the Farm trail on Saturday February 10th. The race has been relocated from Mountain Dell due to snow conditions. The race will be classic technique with individual starts with distances of 1k, 2k, 3k, 5k and 10k. Details and registration at utahnordic.org Come challenge yourself and your friends in age group and novice (5K) distances. Registration deadline is midnight Thursday. Come join the fun!
