White Pine

Crispy cold morning (3 degrees at the shop, 0 degrees at the Farm) leading in to a beautiful sunny winter day! Heading for a high temperature near 40 degrees today but the track should stay pretty nice through the afternoon after the very cold and clear overnight. We groomed everything at the end of the storm , but there was still a fair amount of wind to drift in areas. All trails open and will be groomed today. We did not groom near the church yesterday due to the moose that was wandering around being harassed for photos all day. We gave it a lot of room but the crazy people chasing after it for photos kept it moving and a bit agitated all day. Please do not harass the wildlife. We’ll be grooming the barn side of the farm this morning and then see how the wildlife situation goes. Fresh packed squeaky cold snow for classic and skate today. Watch for some icy, sticky or drifty patches due to the wind. Ski with awareness. The 3k and 5k will be ready first, the Dog Loop, Farm and Armstrong will be groomed next. Blue wax today and classic should be quite good.

Be aware of icy sidewalks, winter walking conditions and use the handrails on the stairs. Please drive safely, walk with care in your ski boots and ski with Joy! Purchase your pass and wear it please. Be aware, be careful and ski within your abilities. PLEASE 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 and park smart helps! Come play in the snow, drop in the shop to say hi, visit the ducks, look for snow bunnies and have a wintery and Joy-filled ski day!

If you’ve read this far, Thank you! We also have an in-store special starting today. All remaining nordic ski boots are 30% off marked price. Selection is limited to stock on hand, no special orders. We also just received a new small order of fish-scale touring skis including a few partial metal edge Rossignols. The skis are not on sale, but if you hurry, we have your size in stock again.
