Great skiing today, we had both Pisten Bullies out this morning, we powertilled cold dry powder on 45 km and reset tracks. Wide Track came in and regroomed 40 km of the Classic only Trails. Temps did not get warm enough to ice up todays grooming, except on open areas and south facing hills. I plan to head out in the AM to regroom with the PB on main trails.
We took the day off from grooming today after 13 days straight of daily grooming. The trails skied well, there are no bare spots and good coverage. It did get warm today and we will have 2 groomers out in the AM.
What a great of skiing and grooming. We groomed up 85 k this morning with both Pisten Bullies and 2 single track groomers. A sign the skiing was good today was that 3 out of 4 of the groomers were out skiing after grooming! (# 4 was working in the office on paper work and selling skis.)
The new snow really made skiing at mid winter conditions we are at 78 inches of snowfall. Looks like we will make our March 21 closing date. a few warm days but with the snowpack and cold nights we should be fine.

What a great day of skiing today. Nice weather, good snow, happy skiers! Cousin Jason Slining doing his “Birkie” at ABR. By the way “Jason Park” is named after cousin Jason. We worked together in the woods cutting trails…5-10 years ago and one day we had lunch there on a beautiful fall day. Jason was leaned up against that tree behind him and he said ” I have a really nice office” as he looked around the woods sipping his coffee. That is a great memory .
