Snow in the Methow Valley high country.

November 1st.   Snow in the mountains last night!

With two feet of snow at Washington Pass, it means there will be the first early season "rock skiing" starting Nov 1, with a groomed loop.

Snow is ringing the Methow Valley up at about 4000 ft. this morning.  From Blue Buck Pk, Lucky Jim Bluff, Goat Pk, and all of the western skyline.     It's beautiful!

Also, Nov 1st is the end of daylight savings time.    Around here, in the Methow Valley, it means it will now be dark at about 5 p.m.     

So get after it early, and don't forget reflective vests and lights if you're on the roads and trails after work this week.

Grinding Season is On

It's a good time to get your skis in for pre-season service work.

Before things get cold and snowy, you might want to get those skis in for a grind.   Whether it's a good pair of racing boards that need to be brought back to their best form after a season of waxing hot with powders and cold waxes, or a pair of skis with some nasty scratches that need to be cleaned up, it's a perfect time to get them serviced.

Pre-season service on your skis has the advantage of not being quite so time sensitive for you.   There is still plenty of time to get skis tuned up before the Thanksgiving trips to Silverstar or West Yellowstone.

Nordic Ultratune uses a six step process to assure that you get skis that are well prepared and ready to race.

So check out the grind menu, download a work order form, ship your skis, and then you can relax through the summer knowing that you're a step ahead of the game on preparing for next season.
