White Pine

Cold overnight and just a few snowflakes floating down this morning. A beautiful start to a wintery day! We received another 3 inches of snow yesterday during the day. We’re rolling and packing the 3km, 5km and Armstrong trails first, then we’ll work our way to the dog loop after the core trails are done. The skate and classic track will be soft and smooth with the new snow. All trails but the Farm are open. We need to go dig out the very high plow berms on the road crossings before we can get our grooming equipment safely in and out. Grooming focus will be on the core near the nordic center first. Blue wax today early, red later in the afternoon. The skiing won’t be fast early, but it will be another beautiful day to be out.

Watch for icy walkways and use the handrails! Please drive safely, walk with care in your ski boots and ski with Joy! 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 and drop in to the shop to say hi. The snow bunnies will be bundled up this morning. Let’s put in a big plug for all the hardworking people who spend hours making your ski experience wonderful. Please have a Joyful, wintery and adventurous ski day! Remember to support your local news sources! Top tip of the day? All boots are on sale in the shop. Also all kids clothing, boots and skis. Get in before everyone finds out!
