The forecast is calling for 6-10 inches of snow this Lap Year Day overnight. So far this season, the forecasters have been overly optimistic. If the snow falls into this range we should have enough snow to groom. The 4″ we received last week was enough to run the roller around a few of the trails but still not enough to ski on with abandon.
Tonight I’m expecting a NorIncher but hoping for the NorEaster or at least enough snow to ski in the woods. The treed sections of trail only have enough snow to cover the rocks and sticks. For my classic ski the other day temps were 25 F. Instead of wondering if blue wax the kick wax of choice, I pondered what “stick wax” to use. In the fields where there was enough snow, it was a wonderful blue day.
With any luck, I’ll awake in the morning to enough snow to groom and more importantly, to ski. It’d be fun to write about grooming and stop rehashing the lack of snow.
