ANOTHER COLD DAY WITH GREAT SKIING

Another Cold one today. Temperatures are only going to reach a high of 0 degrees today. This arctic air is really hanging in there and so is the skiing. We have 30 KM plus of fantastic skiing and some great snowshoe trails as well. It has been fantastic to see so many smiling faces out there over the last week despite the cold temperatures. Nordic Skiing and snowshoeing is a great way to beat the cold. It creates it's own heat ! Remember that if you come up to ski or snowshoe to wear a lot of layers and protect all exposed skin, especially your face and nose ! The wind is supposed to be a factor today which for the last few days has been zero to none. We have some great woods trails to get

ANOTHER GREAT DAY

Good Morning, The low dropped to 22 degrees below zero at my house last night. Coldest reading in a few years for sure ! Currently at Ole's it is 10 degrees below zero. There is little wind forecasted today and the temperatures are supposed to be a near tropical 9 degrees ABOVE zero by around mid day. There is some potential snow too forecasted to fall this morning. So with these "warmer" temps bring your suntan lotion, get your towel ready and have your tanning mirrors at attention. It is going to be a great day of skiing. We will be grooming fresh almost 30 KM of ski trail today for your gliding pleasure. We added the Warren Pinnacle Ski Trail to our trail count yesterday and I heard it wa

ANOTHER CHILLY START BUT ZERO WIND AND GREAT SKIING

Good Morning, Last night was the coldest night thus far this year. At my house across the hill at 2 AM we had 19.6 degrees below zero.... NICE. We like it cold in the Nordic business. Way better then 65 and raining. That's just plain weird. Yes it is cold, but there is light and variable winds forecasted for today and it is supposed to rebound to a balmy 4 degrees Fahrenheit by about 2 PM. Cross Country Skiing and snowshoeing is a sure fire way to beat the cold. We have all the gear you need for rent and some fantastic trails to explore. The air is clean and refreshing. Come up and say hello. If you do decide to venture out remember that it IS cold and you need to have the right layers and

Winter

It is 12 degrees below zero here at the center as of 8 AM. It is fairly chilly. There is no wind as of right now so it is actually pretty darn nice out. IF you dress right and keep moving! We have some great skiing out there if you can beat the cold. If you decide to come up and see us for a ski on our 25 KM of great skiing or a snowshoe out in the forest, remember to dress in layers and have all exposed skin protected. Goggles over a nice gator works well. Also remember that the high today is only 0 degrees. So know your limits and be safe. Call with questions we are open everyday 9 AM - 5 PM. Grip wax should be Swix V05 Polar White today and glide wax should be CH/LF 4 or cold powder.

Chilly but beautiful morning

A cold 5 degrees below zero here at Ole's this morning. The arctic air that stormed in yesterday afternoon squeezed about 1/2" of fresh powder snow out of the air and it is grooming out beautifully. We are still skiing on about 25 KM of beautiful trails and we are feeling fine here at the center. The high for today is only 7 degrees above but I personally think that with the sun out it feels much warmer. There is no better way to beat the cold then to strap on a set of Nordic Ski's or snowshoes and take a tour. We have some great woods skiing too,. It is a beautiful day to be outside. There are is a lot of fresh tracks and it is cool to see all the animal tracks in the woods as the move aro

Trails are great

Good Morning, The trail system is skiing great, things are in prime winter condition and it is only December !. We have epic early season skiing conditions. The best not only early season conditions, but the best overall that we have had in several years. We will be skiing on about 25 KM of trail today groomed for both Classic and Skate skiing techniques. It is supposed to get a bit breezy and chilly out there today around mid day but we have some great woods skiing to offer and it is a fantastic way to get out of the wind and get outdoors. Ole's is open everyday from 9 AM -5 PM. We have a great selection of new ski gear in From Rossi. Skida Hat's should be in today, Come check it out . See

Happy Christmas Eve and the skiing is superb.

Good Morning, It is absolutely great out there. The 8" of snow that we received on Friday has groomed out great and we have about 25 KM of great skiing to offer today, groomed for both classic and Skate skiing. This may be the best skiing that we have ever had for Christmas week. Needles to say we are all very psyched here at Ole's. I can't remember the last time we had some woods skiing available at this time of year. We also have another 6-12" of snow coming in tonight and tomorrow day. Ya hoo ! Come up and have a ski !! We will be closing today at 4:00 PM due to the holiday. For tomorrow we are gonna be open 10 AM - 2 PM. Come up have a ski, and say hello.

To groom or not to groom that is the question.

Yesterday we received about 8 inches of beautiful snow. Today that beautiful snow is going to get doused with sleet, freezing rain and the finally this afternoon plain rain. That leaves a snow groomer in a pickle. All this beautiful snow just begging to get packed out and groomed to perfection. But if I over do it and we get enough of the dreaded clear stuff, we will ice out our trails and be working with nothing but ice tomorrow. So I chose the middle ground. And with a bit of apprehension decided to do a few light roller passes and set a track on about 10 KM of trail today. It currently is going to ski great once the weather starts back up today things could change. We are supposed to get

Snow Snow Snow

We are forecasted to get anywhere from 6- 12 inches of snow through Saturday night. and we are feeling fine. The open trails are already skiing great and with the snow coming in we will be stylin for the weekend. If everything plays out as it is supposed to I anticipate having up to 25KM of great skiing open, if not more. Call the shop with questions. Happy Holiday's everyone !!

We lived to ski another day.

Yesterday was warm and rainy. Not what we like for Nordic pursuits. We did survive though and coming over the hill this morning the airport and surrounding fields were still white with snow. Our snowpack at first glance still looks similar to what we have had over the past week or so. We will be suspending grooming operations today. There is quite a bit of water under neath the snow from the melt yesterday and if we groom too soon all of that water will come to the top and freeze into ice as the temperatures drop through out the day today. This afternoon or tomorrow, with the 1/2" of fresh snow that is on the trails everything should groom out nicely and we will be back in action. That being

Spring snow Today

It is currently 37 degrees here at the center at 9 AM. We received about three inches of snow yesterday and it turned into cream cheese over night. We have groomed out trails # 2, # 3, and # 11 for your skiing pleasure. The skiing is fantastic on the groomed trails and the track should be nice and fast. We are limiting grooming today in an effort to preserve our snowpack from this short warm spell. We are supposed to get a dusting to two inches of snow overnight tonight and we will groom per usual for tomorrow. We have a forecast that is all over the board so cross your fingers people, burn your extra ski's for a sacrifce to the snow gods and spin around three times. Maybe we won't get a wa

A cold 5 degrees below zero here at 6 AM. Arctic start to the day, but there is little to no wind and abundant shunshine forecasted for the entire day today. Temperatures should rebound by around mid morning. The best thing I like about these arctic blasts is the pure oxygen therapy. The air is clean and crisp and good for you.

We are groomed out for both Skate and Classic skiing with a beautiful track in just about all 10 KM open trail. Free skate clinic at 10 AM today.

There is also a packed trail out to the big hill on Trail # 5 (Repeat Hill). Where there is a approximately a 3 KM loop of twitsy excellent skiing. It will work you.
