These warm temperatures have created unfavorable conditions for ski hills and back country trails.

 

Mount Washington has a current base of 20 centimeters with a number of runs not operating.

 

The ski hill posted on Facebook on Thursday that the Eagle Chair just opened.

 

“Eagle Chair is officially up and running this morning! Thanks for hanging in there with us through the slow kick-off to the season,” the post read. “Our ops team has been all hands on deck to get more lifts and slopes ready for you to enjoy.”

A number of runs not operating? 80% aren’t operating.

Warm weather forces Mt. Washington ski resort to close, may reopen Friday

 

The resort said it was suspending operations for Wednesday and Thursday
 
 
 
The resort is expecting colder weather later in the week, with below-freezing temperatures forecast for Friday and Saturday.
 

All three mountains on Vancouver’s North Shore also closed Wednesday in a season that has challenged ski resorts across the province with warm temperatures and little snowfall.

Why don't we drag out one of those rare VI marmots for a bit of publicity every groundhog day?

That’s another missed marketing opportunity. Get that one busking down on the lower causeway and handing out $10 off Enpress Tea coupons.

It’s all coupons these days.

The Victoria Royals have some kind of a large rat-type mascot they could tie in too.

Fact: all groundhogs are marmots. All marmots are squirrels.

Violet the Vancouver Island marmot wasn’t swayed by other weathercasting wildlife predicting an early spring on Friday — Groundhog Day — and cast her vote for six more weeks of winter.

 

It’s the third year in a row the Island rodent has called for winter to carry on, rather than for the quick arrival of better weather.

 

She took over forecasting duties after the death of another marmot, also named Violet, and has an impressive track record.

 

“Her last two predictions have been spot on,” said Adam Taylor, executive director of the Marmot Recovery Foundation.

I would rather have six more weeks of winter than six more weeks of Trudeau.

I'm watching "Groundhog Day" on AMC. Not surprisingly, it's playing in continuous rotation today.
