Let's all take a moment to mark the passing of a friend.
Good Snow is gone.
I have to admit I haven't been out to the Syncline Trails, but it rained in the morning at the ski hill today, according to a friend, and he said the snow was gone from the parking lot. I don't expect there's anything decent to ski on at the Trails, nor will there be until we get New Snow.

Out skiing today on the Syncline Cross-Country Trails. A good base of packed snow, but with the warm weather it's a little fast and nobbly. Another 10 cm of snow and it would be very good.

I managed to get out Saturday just before dark. Called it wrong for the wax, but limped around one loop anyway. And I can say, the ski season has begun. Not much of a base, but usually enough. The new snow adequately covers any ice or bare spots. I'm anticipating the weather forecast will be accurate and will drop another several centimetres in the valley through the week. Then it will be all that much better. If enough snow does fall, we're hoping to get a packing done before the weekend. Maybe it will warm up by then too.

Sorry for being so long in giving an update on conditions at the Syncline Cross-Country Trails, but the situation is dismal and has been for quite a while.
We need more snow.
