I didn’t ski today, but I’m anxious to hear the the trip reports. So far, Bev, Barry and Doug are reporting just what I’d expect. The temperature reached as high as +7°C in Canmore today, and our first trip report, from Bev, was extolling the virtues of skintecs on wet snow. Guess I’ll have to try and find mine. It’s been nice, not having to think about waxless skis.
We had two-and-a-half fabulous months of cold weather, excellent snow conditions, easy waxing, no needlemania, no ice, no tree bombs, and no snow fleas. I don’t recall such an incredible stretch of good skiing, at least not since I’ve started the blog.
I’d sure be interested to hear from anyone who was at Lake Louise today. That’s the one place where we can usually rely on cold snow when everywhere else is melting.
Thankfully the forecast is calling for cooler temperatures and a cm or two of snow tomorrow. We had a brief scare a couple months ago when it warmed up for one day and rained, but it was followed immediately by cold temperatures and snow which fixed things up. Here’s hoping.
