Nordic Conditions Report

Friday February 22, 2019 Last update 07:43 a.m.


OPERATIONS UPDATE:
Due to extreme winds and dangerous conditions, we have shut down all nordic and alpine operations for the day.

Well hello, subzero, can't say that we love having you around but your visits are rare enough to tolerate. Now move along. Brrrr.

Beautiful and still, the skies are gathering snow clouds this morning but we expect the majority of the day to be clear with possible flurries only later in our skier day. The real stuff moves in tonight. 3-7" maybe, same for Saturday and a walloping 9-13" is possible on Sunday. Thankfully the temperatures are forecasted to warm up and highs for the next 3 days will be in the mid 20's. Currently it is 5.4* at the Base, a nice lift from the -4* registered in the Cat last night, and the snow, measured on the skiing surface (thanks for the advice, Bert H ;-)), is as cold as we've seen here, -2.5*. RH is 79%.

The snow surface is cold squeaky corduroy. Quintessential START GREEN, cold, squeaky corduroy, so firm you nearly bounce off it. All of the Uppers and Middles are groomed for Skate and Classic.

The OISRA State Champs get underway today but not until 2:00pm, with a 5km Skate Race starting and finishing in the Stadium. A full day of racing is on tap tomorrow too, starting with a 5km Classic at 10:00am and a Team Relay at 1:00pm. Also in and out of the Stadium. We'll provide a rundown of the involved trails in tomorrow's post.

Grabbin' us some handwarmers for the rout today, our favorite buff and perhaps a dab of Bag Balm. What's in your cold weather kit?

See you out there.
