We had a good turn out for the opening day and skiers were content with the early season conditions. A few sections to avoid but overall very skiable. No Classic tracks today, we will regroom on Saturday AM.
We just got a dusting overnight but the guys are out now grooming and laying cordoroy on most of the skate trails. We will be open at 9 AM with a thin early season base . No classic tracks today. WE will be open 9-dark.
We will be opening Friday with early season conditions. We will not be setting tracks on Friday but maybe on Saturday weather permitting. We rolled about 30 km of trail this morning. The base is thin and has some wet spots. The trail is freezing down well tonight as the temps are in the teens. We do not recommend your best skis.
We have been getting a dense base building snow off and on today and it continues to snow as I type. We plan to groom in the morning and let it freeze Thursday, opening the trails Friday. This is the plan, it could change based on weather. I am not sure how many km will be open, how many tracks set if any, and how thick the base will be. What I can say is we will do the best we can with what we have to work with.
Angela went out today for a ski with Spanky on the Dog Trails. Enough snow to glide but more is needed to groom and open. It looks like John Dee is calling for significant snow this week.
