Skiing into April :D (aka the winter that keeps on giving)

Still LOTS of snow North of Superior. All trails open and groomed. The snow pack is very dense as it absorbed a lot of rain, so it should last for a while. Forecast is -21C tonight, and below-freezing daily highs for most of the week.

Great weekend of skiing (I'm feeling a little sunburned).
Forecast calls for 10 to 20 cm of snow over the next few days :D

My first day on snow was a little late (Dec. 2nd), but I think I'll be able to ski for about two more weeks.

Guilty as charged :oops:
I guess I'm just making up for all the miserably cold skiing I did during January and February?

Apparently the snow forecast has been revised to 30+ cm (a foot or more!). According to the radar I believe it.

Believe it or not,we are still able to ski in southern Ontario as well.

Hardwood hills still has skiable snow and we are getting hammered with the white stuff right now! We should be able to ski through next weekend.

Things are still looking good ...much of the trail system has about a foot of (very dense) base. Need to get out early though, as it gets a little soft and slushy in the afternoons.

OT: Looks like some of the locals have had enough of Thunder Bay winter ...like the fellow who decided to make an unauthorized Cessna flight into Missouri :roll: (Yes, I work at the college from which he stole the plane, but he wasn't one of my students!)

Well, the plane is back at the aviation school... and it's snowing again! Up to 15 cm, probably because I took the winter tires off the car last week.
There is still a good base in the trees and north-facing slopes. I may try to get out tomorrow. After all I haven't storage waxed our skis yet.
