We had another day of spring skiing today. Skiers reported that skiing was super fun and fast on the ground up corn snow from 9-12. Skiers also enjoyed the warm skiing at 45 degrees on a firm base from 12 – close.
We groomed all 73 km of trails last night and this morning including power-tilling all of the wide trails with the Pisten Bully and power-tilling the narrow trails with the Alpina dual track and Alpina small tiller and track-setting with the “Ginzu” Groomer and Bearcat.
We will continue to groom for the next several warm days with lighter equipment and limit our open trails to the more gentle terrain so that the more expert trails keep their snow. (It is difficult for the groomers to climb hills in the softer conditions and it is easy for the beginner skiers to snow plow the soft snow off the trail). So we will be skiing on River Trail, Popple , Pit, Memory, Bachelors, Sulos Cherry, Blue Berry to the shortcut, Meadow and Tamarack and Hemlock and Jack Pine/WP, Rascals and Spank’s. That is 20 km of skating and 31 km of classic.
We do have one small cabin open for next weekend and the Hantala House. Pre Season- Season Pass Green Banana sale is on along with the ski shop sale!
