After a bit of rain and sleet last night, Bearskin has received wet snow all day today. The temperature was 36 degrees by staff housing this morning (usually our coldest spot) when the wet stuff turned to huge snowflakes. This afternoon we see the temps slowly starting to decrease, but it’s still around 25 degrees outside the lodge. The forecast is for it to become a bit colder over the next few days.
The snow has been consistent all day, but hasn’t amounted to many inches — perhaps 3 inches at most. It’s not windy here, so the snow is clinging beautifully to the trees again.
We won’t be grooming until it quits snowing and gets colder. The trails that were groomed a few days ago are still available, but there will be quite a bit of wet snow in the tracks. This is continuing to build a nice base for December. Early season skiing should be the best it has been in years.
