                        OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 10AM TILL 5PM

04/20/18  5:46AM  28 degrees and light snow.  Noon forecast of 33 and cloudy with a daytime high of 38.  Quick re-check on the date.  Kate Thornton of Channel 9 noons yesterday came up with the date of January 107th.  Maybe that is why the weather is so wacky.  One inch of new snow in the last 24 hours.  Six inches over the last 4 days.  This snow has come and gone with the low to mid 30's during the day.  It is about what you would expect for the 104th through the 107th.  Saturday 46 and partly sunny.  Sunday 51 cool and sunny.  Monday and Tuesday get back to normal temperatures at 58 and 61 respectively.  Not open for skiing as I am in and out all weekend.  Still if you want to ski trails like Malloy are skiable.  If I am around the day lodge and bathrooms will be available.  267 inches of snow for the season.

 

2 hot 2 ski sale - summer of 18.  check out the inventory of skis for sale.  Skis will be here late this week or early next week.  see the 2 hot 2 ski sale page.

 

04/19/18  6:56AM  31 degrees and light snow.  Not surprisingly, the winter of wacky has turned into the spring of wacky.  Noon sees around 36 with flurries and a daytime high of 37.  Friday 38 with AM flurries and mostly cloudy.  Saturday 44 and partly cloudy and chilly for this time of year.  Sunday 48 and mostly sunny.  Average high / low for Osceola this time of year is 58 / 36.  Available sunshine is 13 hours and 37 minutes.  2 inches of new snow in the last 24 hours bringing our season total up to 266 inches.  While we are closed for skiing, I have told members for years that they can ski if they want after the 15th.  Just stop for a rest stop (bathroom) on the way up as I might not be here.  With current conditions, I am extending that offer to everyone.  No grooming, may be trees down etc., but the flats should be much better than normal for this late in April.  I will be in and out all weekend.  As long as I am around bathrooms and shop will be accessable.

 

 HUGE NEWS AT THE OSCEOLA TUG HILL XC SKI CENTER.  I have reached an agreement with Fischer Ski Company about purchasing over 300 pair of high end classic skis.  To make room for these skis we will continue the 20% off all equipment through December 1, 2018.    These include 80 plus pair of Carbonlite wax & Zero skis, 160 pair of RCR wax, crown and Zero skis, 50 pair of RCS wax, crown and Zero skis. 19 pair of junior Carbonlites in a Zero base.   I purchased 75 pair of Carbonlite skate skis last year and they are all gone.  For those that ski here and have seen our inventory, this is the largest purchase we have ever made.  This surpasses even the Peltonen purchase three years ago.  Agreements with all the ski companies set a Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) on all sales.  These skis along with remaining Peltonen are all 50% off MSRP.  Final inventory and invoice will be worked on tomorrow and I will list all skis available along with the flex numbers in about a week or so when I get the skis.  I will be able to ship these skis to you.  Due to the size of the packaging there is an oversize charge for shipping.  I can mail to you for $30 and that would be the same for one or two sets of skis.  Thanks to all the skiers that have traveled to Osceola this seaon.  While I always have mixed emotions at the end of the season (nice to have a break) I can hardly wait till next year to start another season.  Again - Thanks.

OPEN HOURS SKI SEASON - 7 DAYS A WEEK 10AM TILL 5PM

 

APPOINTMENTS AT OFF HOURS ARE NOT A PROBLEM, BUT YOU WOULD NEED TO CALL FIRST TO MAKE SURE THAT I WILL BE AROUND.

 

WE HAVE TWO GROOMERS, OUR NEW ONE THIS YEAR IS A POLARIS EPS 1000.  TRACKED MACHINE GENERATING 80+ HORSE POWER.  IMPLEMENTS INCLUDE ROLLER, DISC DRAG, YORK RAKE AND TWO YELLOWSTONE 84 INCH GINZU GROOMERS.

 

 

We also groom with an Alpina Sherpa.  This is a 1.6L, 4 cylindar truck on a snowmobile frame.  An Italian made machine designed for pulling and climbing in the Alps.  This machine produces 75HP and 82 lb-ft.

 

One of the main advantages we have in Osceola Is a wealth of fresh soft snow.  At 0.38 pounds per square inch ground pressure the Shepa allows us the abilty to groom - renovate - pack any amount of snow.  This lets our skiing stay firm to the ski for skate skiing.  Set track for classic and no rug burns for those inadvertant sudden stops (falls).  More specs. and pictures on www.alpinasnowmobiles.com

 

I use a Yellowstone 84 inch Ginzu groomer. With 250 pounds of down pressure we have the ability to smooth out all snow regardless of the age.  The Alpina is 1180 pounds dry weight, the Ginzu groomer is 330 pounds.  To give you a feel for the size of this equipment, the work class snowmobile from Bombardier the Skandic super wide track is 650 pounds.  Two passes on all the trails with a touch of overlap gives you trail widths of 12 to 14 foot with classic track and skate lanes.   www.yellowstonetrack.com
