February, 5th

By: Dave Hatoff Comments: 0

After a week of being the clouds and fog, the sun came out big time both on Sunday and today.  It felt oh so good to see and the sun and get some Vitamin D going!

But because of all that fog and moisture that was in the air, rime ice has formed on all of the trees, especially up high, where the woods have taken on a much different appearance of late. Due to the weight of rime ice and snow on the trees, many tree limbs are now extremely low, and actually hitting the ground, or breaking off causing a lot of debris to be dispersed.

This is causing many clean woods lines to ski to become blocked, or alternated, due to the all of the heavy weight on the trees.  You will also encounter a crust layer down at the lower elevations that if already skied, can be a bit rough. So just be aware and be prepared to have to adapt from the top to the bottom of your runs. 

The weather ahead looks to be sunny and dry for much week so make sure you get a chance to get out there and enjoy the sun.  Looks like we have another warm up on the way for late Friday into Saturday where the dreaded “R” word returns once again. Lets see what happens.
