White Pine

We received about 6 inches of new snow yesterday. Cold overnight temperatures have firmed up the track nicely. It should be a great day for both skate and classic cruising. A bit cloudy this morning but the sun will be out midday! We’re grooming the 3km, 5km and Armstrong trails today. All trails but the Farm are open. We’ll be grooming the Farm, with the generous assistance of Mountain Trails and Park City, this afternoon for the Wasatch Citizens Series distance race on Saturday. The Farm trail will be open for public skiing beginning mid-day Saturday. Please do not ski the trail Friday afternoon after the race groom. The trail will be soft for several hours after the grooming and if you go out there you’ll make deep ruts in the snow that will endanger racers in the morning. Blue or violet wax this morning, red later in the afternoon. The skiing won’t be too fast early, but it will pick up mid-morning as the tracks get skied in and the sun comes out. It will be another Joyful and beautiful day to be out playing in the snow. Watch for icy walkways and use the handrails! Be aware, be mindful 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 and some wading birds are starting to arrive. 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 sunny ski day!

Come and watch the Wasatch Citizens Series Season Finale 20km at the Farm on Saturday. Kids start at 10 am, adult waves start at 10:20 am. Bib pick-up is at St. Mary’s Church Social Hall from, 8:30 am to 9:30 am. After that, the volunteer race crew will head outside to the race course. We’ll be using the full Farm loop. Age based distances and wave starts. We’ll be grooming Friday afternoon. The trail will be closed to public skiing from Friday afternoon until mid-day Saturday. Please don’t hop the rope and ruin the race grooming Friday afternoon. Thank you. Flouro/PFAS wax and snow testing will be taking place at the race.
