What a beautiful day – 35 cms of pow turned the resort into Alice in Winter Wonderland overnight.
Guests sledded in from Ottawa, the Seaway and Ottawa Valley to carve and ride on the natural stuff all day – such a treat in ON.
The maintenance team has been out all day ploughing the Resort’s roads, parking lots and accommodation communities – they’ll be at it all night just to finish. One man’s love is another’s labour.
Snowmaking changed the play book last night to work around unpredicted high winds. The firepower was concentrated in areas less affected by the winds – Shantyman and O’Briens. Later in the morning, after the winds went down, the guns were re-aimed to Barrett Chute and the west side trails.
Snowmaking has been non-stop laying down fresh snow for 24 hours and we plan to open Barrett Chute, TBone and Lower Old K&P in the next two or three days – and possibly more. Conditions are great and getting better; watch the web site for exciting developments; we open trails when they are ready; and that can be early or mid day.
The weather outlook continues to make us proud! There is another 5 to 7 cms on the horizon; and the temps stay down so that snowmaking remains flat out for the entire 2 week horizon.
The Solar Chair and the Beginner Bowl carpet lift open at 9:00AM and spin till 4:00PM. We expect to have Lakeview spinning for the weekend. Lift tickets are 20% off tomorrow at the Adventure Center – a bargoooon!
