It snowed overnight.
We wrapped up the winterization yesterday, got what was planned inside including the Böhler switch machines.

Just noticed that our XC club now has an additional webcam.
First ski planned for Sunday.

Do you let the layout sit in the winter? Don't run anything?
Can you still operate a bit on your staging area in the garage?

Yes it's dormant during the winter, except when I open the cover and lower the bridge to have a longer drill track out in the open.
Otherwise too busy with projects and/or too tired from XC skiing. :ymdevil: :ymdevil: ;)
Tomorrow will be my first run this season.

To keep with the theme....

For those who would like to see the weather at the XC venue check out the dual Webcam https://www.sovereignlake.com/info/webcam/Remember it's Pacific Standard Time(UTC -8)!

Who are all these people? Various teams doing early training, the USA national team usually shows up for their Thanksgiving week. Our first competition is Dec 8th & 9th.

Have a fun winter HJ. Here's hoping for good health, and no crashes. ;-)
ps. We're getting our first real snow tonight here in TO....about 10cm expected....fairly wet. I imagine the big storms on the east coast are affecting this. I wonder if any ash from CA will drift over, or certainly affect the Rockies....

Thanks John!

My season started Tuesday, building distance and speed.
The tracks are a lot better than I expected, meaning next week I can switch from the "rock skis" to the good ones. Tuesday was a case of not enough kick but lots of glide since the snow was hard packed, yesterday with a few centimeters of fresh snow was a lot better.
