We normally don’t measure snow in inches but in feet here in Big Snow Country. Today we picked up another 1-2 inches which was groomed this morning. Lot’s of happy skiers enjoying the snow and some classic skiers skiing in a track on the classic only trails and sides of the skate lane. Thin cover but very skiable with a grassy surface underneath.
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.
