I was there this weekend, they have definitely been running the guns on the silver bullet runs, I think under the guns there was a good two feet of snow but in between ground was nearly baremand it was 12 C and raining when I left sunday afternoon. By Wednesday it's supposed to go back to zero, so not much melting after that I expect.

Maybe the weekend of December 15th?

well we are expecting snow here tonight in Barrie, so maybe Collingwood will get some too. Supposed to be -3ish for tomorrow and be cold till friday according to forecasts, but it'll probably end up being day by day for any forecasts longer than 3 days...

Blue's explanation is that grooming and opening the trails before an insufficient base had been built would compromise the longevity of the base over the season. They wanted to give the best chance of the longest possible season.

They also have a different micro-climate, so they don't get the snow dumps or temps that Moonstone and Horseshoe do.

I went up last night, here's the 'Graduate' trail. They got 2 blues open but it was moguls everywhere.
