Granite Peak Trip is Canceled

After reviewing the current and near term conditions of the Granite Peak slopes we have decided to cancel our trip. It has been a challenging ski season for us, and driving for four hours to be faced with the prospect of a wet weekend and sloppy conditions was just not enticing.

One last trip for the season and The Granite Peak weekend

We are good to go for Sunday's trip, although I am going to juggle the bus stops a bit.  There are still a few seats available on both routes.

All is good for Saturday February 24th and Granite Peak is open for sign up

The east-facing side of Wilmot is pretty bare from direct sunlight, but the rest of the skiing area has held up well to ensure we have a good trip on Saturday. With colder temperatures moving in over the next 36 hours accompanied by the promise of a few snowflakes, we'll be in good shape for Saturday.

Looking forward to Granite Peak on March 8-10th

With final plans underway, members will soon be able to register for the Granite Peak trip. Detailed information can be found under the "More Info" tab. In preparation for the registration, ensure you have your current year's Blizzard tag with your current level punched. Priority is given to this year's participants who have participated in lessons (this weekend  and next counts) and who meet the minimum age and grade requirements.

Wintry Weather

While we always seek out wintry weather in the form of snow, a Blizzard stretches things a bit. As of right now, our trip is on. Mother Nature is a fickle beast so we have no idea what tomorrow holds in store for us. I am more worried about the wind than the snow. Chairlifts don't do well in high winds and while Wilmot's lifts are not particularly high, they are exposed.
