FEBRUARY 1, 2019 AND GOING FORWARD
I am home for a long weekend and skied Ridge-Patterson Friday, Feb. 1. ASP was out grooming the old snow. The snow is fast and hard; tracks are shallow. The base covers the ground except for some spots in low areas in the saddle between the hairpin and the shelter, and near the Ridge-Patterson junction. There are oak and beech leaves in the tracks that made the kick wax grab unpredictably. Looking at the weather forecast, I expect this weekend to remain ski-able. I plan to switch to no-wax Saturday, both because of the leaves in the tracks, and the rising temperatures.
Please add comments to this post to report what conditions you find as we go forward into another predicted thaw. -Allen
