Good Morning, Another beautiful sunrise and another refreshingly cold start to the day. We are back in action with around 10 KM of skiing up here at the center. Exploratory missions around the trail network are in store and I am hoping to have anywhere from 10KM-15KM of trail open for the weekend. Fresh tracks are set throughout open terrain. The forecast for the next ten days is supposed to be sunny and calm as a high pressure system is supposed to dominate our area. Tempera
Fresh powder skiing up here today with fresh mountain air and nice fluffy snow. The winds are light and the skiing is powdery. All powder actually. Come up and ski the powder. Shop will be open today 9AM-5PM. Ice crystal rainbow this morning. The bright light in the middle is not the sun but a reflection of it, also off of the Ice crystals. Pretty cool scene here a 2 degrees on a December morning.
Well.......We got the snow, up to 6 inches. Unfortunately we are experiencing a groomer machine that fried itself on start up. The machine is at the emergency room and diagnosis looks good. Really sorry for the timing on this folks thanks for your understanding hoping to get it back quickly here.
Well that is an update I dreaded doing but the good news it is really nice and snowy and wintry out there. After the machine comes back and I am done banging my head repeatedly
A little bit of snow yesterday has made the airport white again. It is sure nice to see but we still need a few more inches to do some grooming. Hopefully that happens tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
Ski shop will be closed today and re open when some skiing is happening again or when this weekend rolls around. Which ever happens first.
Call with questions.
Good Morning Folks, Slippery travel out there right now. The roads are all covered in a solid coating of ice from the freezing rain this morning. After a heroic drive this morning on the back roads of Vermont the ski shop is open for the day 10AM-3PM. If you decide to come up be careful as the roads are really bad and Ole's parking lot is a sheet of ice. Good day to stay inside with a cup of tea or maybe something a little stronger! Potential for a little snow to come in Mond
A dusting of snow on the airport this morning. At least there is some white again covering SOME of the grass. We are awaiting the snow. It will come.
Do your snow dance, make a shrine out of your old skis and run around in a circle three times while chanting incantations. Profanities are acceptable. It can't hurt.
At least THINK about snow. If you don't it's all your fault... Yeah you.
Hope to see you all soon.
Good Morning, Rain and warm temps have put a one two punch on the snowpack and we are back to green grass. Oh well, it has been a great start to the season and next week things are supposed to turn cold and snowy again. Like I said yesterday, just a couple inches of snow and we will be back to it. Enjoy the warm t shirt weather. We are in for a refreeze later today and tonight and back to cold temps. Have a good day.
Not a photogenic day so no photo. It is cloudy and grey, but the skiing right now is great. Especially the skating. The inevitable warm up and rain that I have been pretending not to see in the forecast is coming our way. Our snow, while good now, will be tested to say the least.
No worries, this year has so far provided abnormally great early season skiing. The ski season is still in it's infancy and if we loose it, another round of Nordic skiing is just one winter weather
Good Morning, It is a chilly start to the day with a temp of zero degrees currently at the ski center. We are open today with around 8 KM of skiing. A lot of people came up yesterday and enjoyed the trails. The sun is supposed to come out and once the temperatures climb a bit it will prove to be another classic day at Ole's. Come up and say hello and do some gliding and or rolling. Our just come up and bug us. Either way see you soon.
Good Morning, A classic Ole's Sunday in store today. It is December 7th and the almost 10 KM of skiing that we have open is in a late evening skiers words "amazingly nice". We are off to another great start this year. Mr. Sun it supposed to come out. It is pretty snowy and wintry out there at present, but that is just fine. Come up and enjoy all the snow.
