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 snowsho
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 at
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 t
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 th
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 Nordi
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
A happy White Christmas to all of you .We received about 4-5 inches of snow early this morning and it is still snowing lightly. We open at 10 AM today and we will be grooming trails for your skiing pleasure including some woods. Come say hello but come soon because it is supposed to get windy and we close at 2 PM SHARP FOR THE HOLIDAY. Reopening Tuesday for regular schedule 9 AM - 5 PM.
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
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
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 !!
