Happy Trails to you.. until we meet again.
Happy SUNNY trails.. this final weekend of our outstanding winter 2018-2019.
It started snowing here a month before we opened on Thanksgiving, more than 190 days ago. Yes, snow has covered the ground more than half a year. We set records for snow depth just about each month.
Our last snow, as of this writing May 2nd, was 4 inches last Monday, the day after continuous lift service ended for the season. Those who hiked say it was one of the best days of April. Glades included.
This weekend looks great. High pressure in southeast Canada sends dry air and seasonable temperatures with increasing sunshine Saturday, and likely all day sunshine for Sunday. The dewpoint drops to 32, so we can cool to 32 Saturday night. That means perfect Spring skiing Sunday, crispy to start and corn for the rest of the day. Light wind from the north Saturday, comes around form the south Sunday with highs in the 60s at the base. I am pretty sure there is still enough natural snow to get in the trees too, at least up near the top anyway.
The weather pattern still features a lot of cold in Canada, and we may have snow on the mountain a couple more weeks, another few inches of natural snow may be in the cards too.
It's been a blast being one of your weather forecasters again this year.
Hopefully we see each other again in the fall.
Happy summer trails to you..
