BRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!! It is frigid out there. At 6:30am, it is negative 29 degrees. There are stars in the sky and a slight breeze.
We have a 47 inch settled base. We received about 16 inches of snow from the Tuesday storm. With all of the wind, it is hard to say for sure however. The temperatures continue to be extremely cold. We are forecasted for a high of negative 15 degrees with sunny skies. If the wind picks up, the National Weather Service is predicting a wind chill value as low as negative 52!
Yesterday, Wednesday, we groomed Essex Road from the lodging area to Dickey Road, Starlight and all of the trails around the cabooses and cabins. With the lodging loops, we have about 5 km of very cold, squeaky snow for your enjoyment today. We will not be grooming today. We plan to keep our staff close to the Inn due to these very extreme temperatures.
If you choose to recreate outdoors today, PLEASE dress warmly, go with a buddy and stick close by to the Inn and lodgings so you can get inside to warm up at regular intervals! We will have a fire going in the lobby and plenty of hot beverage options to warm you up.
Here’s some pictures of the last few days in Essex….
