We had huge winds yesterday in Birkie-land and it resulted in a lot of debris down on the trail. The crew will be spending the weekend out cutting up trees/cleaning up before the snow comes in Monday and we begin our Birkie trail prep. The skiing is still good, very hard base with patchy wind blown snow in places. If out, flick a stick off the trail and earn a gold star!
