Ontario places this time of year?

I might go riding tomorrow at Blue Mountain. Never been there, but I'm hoping the temperature is good enough. It's about 7 deg C right now and tomorrow's high is about the same. Clear skies, not much wind.

Has anyone ridden in those conditions before? We're trying to get there so we can start by 10 am and I'm hoping it doesn't melt too much so we c an get most of a day in, but I've never gone riding before where the temperature went above +1 Celsius. It's below zero overnight so I feel llike that'll keep the snow around for the next day.

Opinions?

I was at blue yesterday 4:30-10
It was pretty good actually...especially earlier on. No ice, or slush, machine groomed... a few glades has some brown spots, but again lots of great runs and moguls

If you're down around the London area, both Boler and Cobble are up and running. Lastnight Boler had a hardpack base with a good amount of manmade snow on top. Cobble this evening was hardpacked, but pretty carved up. No brown spots or slush at either. Liftlines were mad icy though.

While neither are great options, they're better than driving a few hours for something decent.
