i heard that this weekend will be in the 20's with a humidity index bringing it close to 30... i'd say, if it stays open till then, could be interesting... riding in shorts.

anywho. hope all your seasons were spectacular.

sarcasm... yeah... like THAT will ever catch on...

Blue is pretty much the last Ontario resort open and have stated they will be open through the 5th. Hours are changing though and they will run from 7:30 AM to 3 PM to try and get the best parts of the day (the still cold/cool mornings), and lift tickets are down to $29.

Snowpants and a few light layers in the morning, then switching to a t-shirt or windbreaker in the afternoon!

Fantastic way to end the season today at Blue! 27 C, surprisingly good snow conditions on the main couple of runs, and a decent size crowd of clearly die-hard skiers and riders (no or extremely few gapers!) made for a great day out. Pretty much the only fault was the sole chair lift breaking down for about 1.5 hours in the morning, but they at least stayed open longer than planned. Of course, the delay was long enough that a lot of people did the death march and hiked up the run once... That was tiring...

Was really interesting to see so many people riding in bikinis, shorts, yoga pants, tshirts, etc., especially in Ontario! Was well worth the drive and then $29 lift ticket. I can only hope the runs can be salvaged for anyone going the rest of the weekend.

That sounds sick! You don't have any pictures by any chance, do you? Im not going up today so I think my season is over ah well can't wait for next year.

I can ride my bike with no handlebars, no handlebars, no handlebars...

blue for the cheap 5x7 and the fenced off park with it's own lift. this makes a huge difference as first timers don't venture into the park, destroy jumps and injure themselves. i've never seen a line up for the lifts at the park, which is where I usually go. the lines at all the other lifts are just way too long.

I like mslm too but I can never wake up early enough to go there...
