After a banner day all over the mountain, we're ready for one more weekend helping today before the Monday grind comes back to bite us tomorrow. Skies are currently cloudy over the mountain and we expect partly sunny weather with temps around 30 degrees today, so ditch the puffy coats and throw on a nice fleece instead.

We put down skate grooming on 8km of Nordic terrain last night and set track down on Broadway, Spruce, Maple and World Cup. Picnic Loop and Valley Loop were getting a little thin, so we'll lay off them for now. The breakable crust from yesterday should be history after the sunshine so rent a pair of skis and get some exercise or head up into our backcountry. The wax of the day will be Violet.

Thanks to recent snowfall, the rest of the 100km of Nordic and backcountry trails are also open and ungroomed with early season conditions. Also, keep in mind it is still early season and some obstacles such as thin spots still exist on the trails. As always, ski with care. The wax of the day will be Red.

Remember, if you don't have a season pass the Nordic 5 and 10 Packs allow you to save over the daily rate.
