We were greeted with yet another pretty sunrise this morning for our weekly Wednesday Rise and Grind community skin up Nosedive this morning. We witnessed a passing of the torch today as we saw many little kids with their parents heading out at 6am and taking on the 2,000 vertical foot straight up climb that ends with the challenging turns on the Nosedive Headwall. Impressive to see such drive and determination from such little legs, and they all made it up top with little to no difficulty. Watch out for this group for the future whether it be for first tracks, potentially a SKIMO race team, or just zipping by you as you struggle to keep up. These kids are definitely the future of uphill in these parts and will be a force to be reckoned with for many years to come. Great job to all the kids and their parents for passing on the human powered stoke!
On to the backcountry, yesterday’s snow continues to deliver soft turns up high this morning, and north facing slopes should still ski nicely through the morning and early afternoon. There is a big warm front coming through today, and these temps could push 50 degrees with a strong south winds by the end of the day, which will certainly put a damper on the conditions. So, get on it if you can today, the earlier the better. The next 48 hours look very warm. Fingers crossed once again for some snow on Friday. Stay tuned.
