White Pine

Spring is still here! Conditions on repeat with freeze thaw cycles daily. Crust early and very soft slush late. Late afternoon skaters and walkers are really doing a number on the trail. If you can avoid it, please do not ski after 3, the deep ruts freeze solid overnight and are very difficult to groom out. Also, for the people who love to walk the trails…. Please just don’t. Someone walked the entire 5k from the golf building last night and it took 5 laps to remove the footprints.. Post holes are worse than ruts. Help us remind people that the ski trails are for skiing. Full warm spring weather again today with some clouds later.

All trails are open with a fresh soft surface and with hard classic track. Early skating will be very good. Classic skiing will be very exciting and spicy until after 9:30 or so. It will soften significantly later in the day beginning about as the sun warms things up. It is right at freezing this morning so the track will warm quickly. If you can squeeze in a ski and get it just right, you’re bound to have a great time. Warming to near 50 again by afternoon. Crust skiing will be very nice and smooth from the start until about 9:30 today. Hop off the trail and explore a bit. It will get soft earlier today with the warmer morning. Good ski time will be from 10-2 today. Red or violet wax early today, yellow by afternoon with the chance of deep ruts forming. Please be aware of changing conditions, be mindful and ski within your abilities.
