Nordic Conditions Report

Saturday February 22, 2020 Last update 07:29 a.m.


OPENING FRIDAY!
Our 2018-19 Nordic season has concluded. We'll see you again in November!

Blue skies return to greet our Saturday ski day as we continue our spectacular streak of mild spring like conditions and sunshine. The hint of gray on the horizon reminds us of the threat of a temporary change up, but for the moment, all is calm, all is blue, and all is bright.

Following yesterday's full on sun day and snow surface warming, we've now rounded the corner to spring snow and the overnight cooling produced frozen conditions that groomed out into fine mixed granular corduroy. The corduroy surface remains smooth and flat and the full network from the low point on Oli's to the top of New Blue Jay's is once again refreshed for your skate or classic outing.

Current air is 23.2* and snow is 15.9* With a predicted high of 38* today, we'll see considerable softening again throughout the day. We may see a few clouds move in to the area later on in advance of a mini weather bump - a quick, one- off front that could add a nice 2-4" refresh starting early tomorrow morning and lasting through Sunday day. We'll take that... especially with the promise of a return to mild spring conditions and sunshine on the back side, for a good spell, possibly into the first weekend of March. Woot!

So it'll be more sunny conditions today for the OISRA Nordic State Championships as the event concludes with a 5 km interval start Classic race beginning at 10:00 am in the Stadium, and a 3 X Relay at noon. Maps of the involved trails are posted in the Lodge. As always, all trails will remain open during the races. Best of luck to all our local teams.

Best of luck as well to the Bend contingent competing in the American Birkebeiner in Haywood, WI today, the nation's premier and largest Nordic Ski Race.

It'll be a tough return to winter when it comes. We know it will, but we're paying no thought to that now and instead setting our sights on another gloriously mild day of fantastic skiing and a nice recovery lunch on the Deck. So spoiled.

See you out there.
