2.1.2023 Lots of snow, warmer temps coming soon

It finally got chilly. Too chilly — a number of nights of -20 to -30. Skiers were still out there during the day because, of course, we also finally had clear, blue skies and sunny days. January featured mostly lovely temperatures up until the past week, nothing like the January weather we used to always get. After we survive a few more cold nights, we are returning to “balmy” winter temperatures for February.

Zach at Golden Eagle was out with his official measuring stick a few days ago and came up with these numbers:

New Snow Last 7 days:  4.25”
Trail Base, Staked:  Average 15”
Snow in Woods, Staked:  Average 23-26”
Groomed with classic track:  70 km
Groomed with skate lane:   63 km
Surface Conditions:  Fresh snow
Last grooming day:  1-28-23
Total season snowfall:  71.25”

As usual, we are serving chili, soup, hot chocolate, beer, and wine in the Main Lodge every afternoon, and there are fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies for sale in the lodge. We’ll see you on the trails!
