    I'm not willing to make any predictions, but I've got $544 on "It'll Be a Good Season".

    Oh, and the toboganning and snowman making were as good as it gets, as well. Got some great photos which I would share if I can get someone to show me how. LOL

    Snow Report Lake Mountain 2016 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions

    I agree with EB. Conditions were pretty good yesterday although it helped to be as high as possible. Lower down it started to get sticky. I saw 2 people on the trail during my 1 hour romp between 9:45 and 10:45. One chap who inexplicably was going around Panorama the wrong way and a guy stopped...

    Anyone know if they are planning to groom the ski trails tonight?

    But seriously, is it snowing up there yet? Snow cams seem to be down.

    Actually the trees remind me of Canada.

    Agree completely though it was so foggy/misty/overcast that the temperature didn't change at all from when we left home until we hit Marysville and only started to drop as we gained elevation. So it might not have been much better in the early going. At least that's what I'm telling myself. Also...

    Sorry about the double-post. I was messing around with my avatar and thought I'd lost the original then made a scaled down version.

    Snow Report Lake Mountain 2016 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions

    Let's all hope for colder temperatures and more snow. Looks a bit grim there today. Was up all day yesterday. Although I skated 1 full lap around at about 11, it was a hard slog in very sticky snow. Some bare patches but nothing unavoidable. Looks like Sunday was the best day.

    What a difference a day makes ... indeed, but then it works both ways. From the pikkies, Sunday and Monday were lovely, but yesterday was only okay. I skated around the trails yesterday at about 11 am and found it rather tough slogging. Not slushy just amazingly sticky. Lots of exposed bits but...

    Snow Report Lake Mountain 2014 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions

    I skied on Saturday and a week ago Sunday, as well as the Weds before that. I always ski early in the morning if at all possible before the trails soften up. The "blizzard" didn't last long but was quite heavy. I was quite an active skier in Victoria from 1994 thru 1998, skiing all the races...

    teleXC, I think you'll find that most of the rail damage is from treefall. I've been on the trails 3 times now, Weds (during school hols), a Saturday and a Sunday, and I would say apart from the first few hundred metres they were all but deserted. I skated through the non-groomed trails on...

    The original plan was to go to Bah Bah, but the family bottled last night, so I headed up "The Mountain". Drizzled all the way, and was 3 degrees and raining with a cool breeze at the car park at 9:30, so it was well that the family didn't come. I did my usual circuit out Panorama and back down...

    Snow Report Lake Mountain 2014 - Trip Reports, Pics & Conditions

    Skate-skied out to Panorama Lookout then back down Royston Rd for my first ski in nearly 5 years. Physically I was a wreck. That aside, it was a great experience. Most of the time, the only sound I could here when I held my breath, was the thumping of my own heart. The snow was a little variable...

    10 kms will do nicely. If I go completely insane, I can always go around twice.

    Anyone know how much of the total length of nordic ski trails in the village and park are groomed or are expected to be groomed by the weekend, and if there is a grooming/trail report anywhere for the nordic skiing? Do they only groom in the resort or in the park as well?

    Looks like Lake Mountain has a new website!

    Sure thanks.

    Looks like Lake Mountain has a new website!

    Well, now that I'm in, onto the next part of my question, since the webpage wasn't much help. Does anyone know (for certain) if an all resorts pass can be purchased online/by phone/from the ticket booth at Lake Mountain and picked up from the ticket booth at Lake Mountain?
