Grooming Scheduling 
  We had a great season of skiing 128 days of good to excellent skiing Nov 13th to March 22 and daily grooming. As I groomed the last few k of trails this morning it was a bittersweet. We had good spring skiing this weekend. We have to close when we can not provide fun and safe skiing every day. With the thin base on downhills and south faces, strong spring sun, and the Montreal River rising with the warm temps, we are closed for the season. As a corporation we have to answer to our insurance company, accountants and board of directors. We charge a trail fee and expect that we can provide you with a good to excellent skiing experience. We want to thank you for your business this season and hope that you have a safe and healthy summer.

Firsthand 
  Conditions: Epic spring conditions yesterday and today.
What a glorious way to finish the season. It's really amazing to see Eric working his magic on the trails that were still fully covered; about 30K or so. This morning was the best ever. Frozen cord with enough edge for effortless skiing and not too nerve wrecking downhills. Fun, fun, fun!

Grooming Scheduling 
  We had a super day of skiing today... we saw many skiers we had not seen all season. The trails tilled up well with the dusting of new snow. I will be grooming for the last time Sunday morning for some good spring skiing again on Sunday. We will be closed in the ski shop and for skiing Sunday at 5 PM.

Grooming Scheduling 
  We had a good day of skiing today...not crowded today because the forecast said it would rain. We had great spring skiing till 4:30 pm when the rain started. It appears that the rain stopped and temps are dropping. We plan to regroom the trails early in the morning, as the temps should continue to drop, with the Pisten Bully. Forecasts call for for 1-3 inches of snow overnight. We plan on grooming and skiing thru Sunday. Monday we will be closed.

Grooming Scheduling 
  We groomed about 30 km of trails tonight including Hemlock, Jack Pine, White Pine, only two bare spots on Hemlock on the return (easy to avoid using the River Trail for 100 yards along the River). The wide trails Pisten Bully groomed trails are holding snow very well. The trails are covered with a few thin areas on the south slopes but very nice skiing. We will head out to the Highlands in the early morning to see if we can get them in shape for the weekend. We plan to be open through the weekend closing at 5 PM Sunday.
