The sun has been shining here but the temperature have stayed far below seasonal. For the past week we have been experiencing night time lows of -15 C and highs of only -2 C on average. However, the sun has been intense and is working its magic on the snow pack despite the cold temperatures. This week looks like a change in the weather is coming. Predicted highs for Thursday is +10 C and sunshine. Night time lows are staying steady at -2 C. The snow should disappear fairly quickly under these conditions.
I took a walk around today and things look good. No more snowshoes needed. This is the time of year that superintendents have to “hurry up and wait!” You are very anxious to get out and get working so you get the course in the best condition for opening day but you have to wait until conditions are right or you can potentially do more harm than good. I have added another update video to this blog. Check it out below. You can see some changes despite the cold weather.
Until Next Time.
