White Pine

That’s all folks! The last day of the season. Still skiable in most places, but absolutely mushy. Classic ski pond skimming will begin at 2, beach wear is encouraged. It has been a fantastic season. Thank you one and all for supporting us as we move into our second 50 years! See you out on the trails and back at the Nordic Center in November!

Stay safe.

Solitude Nordic

All trails groomed this morning. 39° at 8am, high of 58°. Skating will be good until it warms up this afternoon. Classic tracks were set, but are thin especially on the lower loops. Beware of rocks, potholes, ice, and other late-season conditions.

reaching for the fork… No freeze, all thaw. The 3k and Armstrong are skiable, but growing gaps on the 3k. All other trails closed and messy. You will have to out and back or walk a little bit. Deepening water features, increasing grass and pavement. Where the skiing is good, it is quite good. Slush and water are fun! We’ll be closing the doors for the season tomorrow afternoon and packing up the shop. It’s been great, but all things must come to an end. Enjoy the heat! SPF100 is the wax of the day, short sleeves and beachwear tomorrow!

If you ski, ski safe

Spruces

Groomed Spruces this morning. Still plenty of snow up here, upper loop was very nice. Spring conditions obviously. The North side of the lower loop has pavement showing, and the trail to Jordan Pines has dirt showing so we did not groom those. However, the upper loop was great skiing and plenty of snow. I did take down the interp and trail sign names today.
Have fun!

Deer Hollow Winter Recreation Area

Todays warm temps made for good grooming conditions. The Big Cat was able to lay some good corduroy and tracks. All of the XC Trails were groomed with the big SnoCat Groomer, and tracks were set on most.
Snowshoe trails were groomed with the BearCat snowmobile and small YTS Groomer.
The Deer Hollow snow pack is a settled 3 to 3.5 ft., making good backcountry/off-trail conditions. These beautiful spring conditions, won’t last long, so get out and enjoy!
Todays Groomers were Jess H. (FS) & Volunteers: Steve, Topher, Chris, & Jim.

Spring conditions are here! A light freeze overnight has made the track fast and scabby. Please be cautious if you’re planning on skiing this morning! Classic tracks are variable, consider skating as the best option. Currently 38 F and sunny at 8:30. Melt beginning in about an hour. High reaching mid 50’s this afternoon. Bring your sunscreen!

ever nearer…. It froze just enough last night to make an ice rink. The 3k is getting a fresh groom to go with the classic tracks set late yesterday. Expect a lot of melting and running water as the day heats up. Skiing was pretty good yesterday until early afternoon. Surprisingly good given the temperatures. Places are getting thin so ski with caution and awareness. Probably 10 am will start the sweetness of spring skiing. Very spicy before then so be careful. In fact, be careful all day. End your season on a positive note. Thank you everyone for your support in the crazy season. Drop in, say Hi, get your storage wax done.

White Pine has been part of the Park City community for 50 years. Let’s keep it rolling.

The end is nearer. Pretty much the same as yesterday. Ski at your own risk on closed trails (5k, Farm, Connector, Dog Loop) Ski with caution on the 3k. Watch for icy patches and growing tree well melting. Surface groomed on the 3k. By afternoon it will be quite mushy so come out early. We’re reaching for the silverware drawer to find a fork to stick in it on Sunday at 5. Come and see us, say Hi, thank the staff and we’re always happy to see you. Don’t forget storage wax! Hurry in!

Thanks for supporting your locally owned and operated business for 50 years so far!

The end is near… Heat wave is here. We’ll try to hold on until Sunday for the 3k. Icy early with some very spicy patches to watch out for. 5k is closed and not groomed. ski at your own risk. Farm is posted closed and not groomed. Unmarked hazards will crop up quickly. Ski at your own risk. Crust skiing will be good but breaking up earlier with each day. Best skiing mid-day before it goes to mush and ice mix. Store will close for the season at 5:00pm Sunday 3/27. Get your skis in for summer wax now! It’s been a non-stop Nordic adventure season and we appreciate all of you and your on going support of this locally owned business. White Pine has been in business for 50 years and we thank yo for being a part of it.

Ski safe and we’ll see you at Solitude Nordic next week!

Spruces

Groomed Spruces and Jordan Pines this morning. Left the classic track from yesterday as it was in good shape. New snow helped out and conditions were very nice. FYI, there is pavement showing on the North side of the Nursery Meadows loop. This is likely the last week we will groom the north side of that loop. I imagine this is the last week we will groom Jordan Pines as well, as the trail over is melting out. We will groom until the first week of April and then look at wrapping things up. Come up and ski the new snow and enjoy a last lap before spring!

White Pine

We will be closing for the season on Sunday 3/27 at 5:00pm. We’ll be open 9-5 every day until then! The 5k is CLOSED it is skiable, but you will have to walk in places, the 3k and Armstrong are surface groomed. The Farm will be posted closed tomorrow due to hazards melting out and difficulties safely bringing grooming equipment to the trail (pavement). Crust skiing should be great today, slush skiing will be exceptional later. It did freeze overnight so ski with caution early.

It has been a remarkable season. Drop in to say hi and go for a few final laps!

15°F/-9.4°C at 0830. Trails groomed for skate and classic. Very good conditions early and getting warm and wet as the day progresses. Still mostly fine-grained snow with transformation occurring in the snow under the trees and in direct sunlight.
