After the most unusual weather patterns in January, Mt. Timothy Ski Area welcomed more than 15 centimetres of fresh, which has restored its smooth, soft conditions that skiers and snowboarders expect, says general manager Adam Piccolo.Following the thaw, rain, freeze cycle last week Piccolo says he’d never seen anything like it.”I have never seen snow conditions like that in 12 years working here. It took three passes with the groomer to make an impression.”Luckily, the warm weather did not decrease the snow pack significantly and the base remains at 100 centimetres with new snow falling on top.The fresh snow is dry and soft, the trees are plastered white and Mt. Timothy is again a winter wonderland heading into the Family Day weekend.Mountain specials for Family Day (Feb. 9) include $25 lift passes for adults, while accompanying children six to 12 years are free.Mt. Timothy Ski Area director Stephen Pellizzari says there’s no excuse to not visit the hill this weekend.”Come on out and enjoy winter. Golf is still three months away.”
