White Pine

Cold overnight, a beautiful sunrise and a chance of a few flurries this morning. We’re grooming the 3km, 5km and Armstrong trails today. The skate and classic track will be a bit firmer than yesterday after the warming afternoon yesterday. All trails but the Farm are open. We’ll dig out the frozen plow berms on the road crossings so we can get our groomers and their equipment safely in and out. Grooming focus will be on the core near the nordic center first. Red wax today, red or warmer later in the afternoon. The skiing won’t be too fast early, but it will pick up mid-morning before the warm afternoon slows it down again. 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 out and about this morning. Let’s put in another plug for all the hardworking people who spend hours making your ski experience wonderful. Please have a Joy-filled and adventurous ski day!

Register now for the WCS finale at the Farm on Saturday!
