By the Whitehorse Cross Country Ski Club

Déjà vu?  You got it!  Today is a repeat of April 17, 2006 when 25 centimetres of snow covered the trails.

Last night’s dump was 10 to 15 centimetres — enough to give us another weekend of skiing.                                                                        

Grooming is in progress and will continue. Copper to Best Chance, Upper Valley, Selwyn’s Loop and Coyote will be groomed for classic and skating and should be excellent on Friday and Saturday. All other trails will be good for powder skiing, but no further grooming will be done.

Snow is thin between the Wax Room and the bridge, so walk or ski carefully in that section. Skiing through the stadium and the Tube is not recommended. If skiing Lower Valley, watch for overflow, which may be covered by the fresh snow.

Please observe the dog rules.

Day passes are full price, due to recent grooming and excellent conditions.

Wax of the day: Rode Superblue or Rode Multigrade Violet if the temperature rises to zero. Swix Special Red and other warm-weather waxes will be needed as the temperature returns to season averages.
