Nordic Conditions Report

Nordic Center is OPEN!

Good, happy Thursday morning from the Nordic Center where a  few fast moving ground clouds are offering up some stunning visuals and welcoming a clear, fine day ahead. This'll be a nice break in the lingering "occasional snow" cycle, as the forecast calls for it all to resume tonight.

Current air 15 degrees enroute to a clear high of 36, with snow taking a nice firm set at 24 degrees and RH at 82%. We had a nice dip in temps last night, the first in a while and this all made for a productive grooming shift. Note that the Lowers are back on the docket today along with the full monty of the Middles and Uppers, all groomed up smooth and flat for skate and classic. The surface product today is terrific, a nice integration of the 2+" of dry stuff that fell during the day yesterday with a solid under layer, yielding dry and crispy conditions, entirely grippable and fast. Civil. And some of the nicest "normal" skiing in a awhile.

Prep starts today for the US Snowshoe National Championships scheduled for this weekend March 25 and 26, and starting and finishing in the new race venue at the lower end of the parking lot. Some 150 extreme athletes will be competing in distances ranging from 10k to the marathon. Kids race too! Racers will be shoe-ing on a combination of groomed and single track trails between Devecka's Dive and the parking lot. Swing by to check out the finish line expo and cheer these folks on!

Grabbing a nice little slice of midwinter happiness today. See you out there.
