But given the way they operate, you will still get to go.
They use snow guns during the colder night hours, even when days are all above freezing. It will be cold enough there for its maintenance, yet mild enough that outside the premises, snow could be disappearing rather fast.

@speedyforme you don't need it that cold. It will be cold enough that you can still ski, yet not cold enough to feel the wrath of winter. It is actually quite good.
But will the snow be slushy or melt fast?

I guess I should head up to the slopes early to take advantage of the good snow first.

Well this will be a pretty warm weekend, so it will be "spring skiing" conditions. Snow will not melt away on you, but will be wet for sure, not dry.

Yeah perfect timing. Total coincidence. Saturday and Sunday!

I can now categorically state that the whole rest of Feb will be a warm one. There goes winter!

We certainly won't get it as good as you, especially considering our average highs vs yours.

The good thing is that the warmth we are getting is going to last a while.

Lol. Tomorrow is above normal still.

It is just that this winter has been so warm, even slightly above normal temps seem cold. I wonder if this is becoming the new norm!

For this hell of a winter I hope we get a very cool summer!

Yes. Plenty of warmth to come. It won't stop until next weekend. Then normal temps. March looks like just normal for now.

What's normal.msrch westher? Snow fall or just may be single digits? March 2016 is too distant. I can't even remember what I had for breakfast today.

Already seeing people take out their summer rides if only for a short period. Nice to see though instead of cars with salt stains all over it.

Normal March weather in Toronto starts off just above freezing and frequent rain events. Also maybe at some point, a bit of snow that melts in a day or so. All this is just what seems to be on the way. We got to wait and see a bit though to get a clearer idea of what trend will dominate in March.
