6 consecutive months of skiing in Ontario

Winter in Ontario really is long,  I started skiing at Blue in late November and  probably  had my last day on the hill April 4....6 calendar month of the lifts turning.     Conditions we groomed and hard after a -6C night.   The Sun was out and the temps warmed to around the freezing mark when I hit the slopes.

Spring Skiing

Last Wednesday I spent the morning at Blue enjoying some great spring skiing conditions.    Best run was under the Wilder Chair great speed at the top followed by large sweeping turns all the way to the bottom.

Orchard Glades

Loved the Glades at the Orchard today.   Arrived shortly after opening skiing the groomers for the first hour.  When they were tracked out I hit the Orchard sticking to the glades.    Didn't follow anyone's tracks,  there weren't many!   There was a couple of feet of untouched snow was a blast!

Friday January 11

 Intended on going out early in the day but I got busy at home so I did and evening Ski instead.   This was the first time out under the lights this year and the coldest at -13C.   Did a Run ,  got my skies tuned up then skied for a couple of hours heading home a little after 8pm.  Conditions were pretty good ... lots of snow making going on.

You never know!

 Old man winter has not  been very generous to us yet... warm temps and lack of snow last week.    Wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised today  the conditions were actually quite awesome...hats off to the groomers!    Made it to North ,  Hogs Back and Schaus were the only ones open there wasn't much snow elsewhere on that part of the Hill.   Had a good 3 hours of up and down before heading home at noon.
