Hello ski folks,
This morning, A skiff of fresh snow refreshed the ski trails at Shannondale!
Skate trails were snow comb packed today, should be excellent, with exceptions of approaching Tarzan Ridge and.Wilson Meadow.
Some Classic tracks were skied in today.
We will…[Read more]
Skied Bluestem from the stables to the tower on Monday. The grooming was excellent, unfortunately about a 3 km section of the trail was badly damaged by horses ridden directly over the classic tracks leaving deep holes. In addition, there were large areas with horse dropping on the trail. Very frustrating to see the damage.
Bluestem on the west side of the park and Chickadee are both excel today. Great glide. Lots of deer.
On Sunday we skijored and kick-sledded on the far loop of the Spruce trail. It had not been recently groomed, but was in fantastic shape for skate-skiing and sledding with a light layer of powdery snow. Many members of the Snow Motion group were also using the trail, and we were happy to see that there were no snowmobile tracks.
The Bittersweet trails are amazing! I came out with my sister and enjoyed the pristine trails fir the day. Fast, crisp and pristine all came to mind. The weather was perfect, about -10, so the balance between speed and grip was perfect. The trails we were on had just been groomed, and were in perfect condition. It was a treat to spend the day in…[Read more]
From Iris Griffin:
I skied the Cabin Loop and part of Hamars Lake trail today at Hecla – it was sublime. New snow and great conditions with no bare patches. Kudos to the Team at Hecla Maintenance Yard for the pride they take in making Hecla truly a winter wonderland.
BHP amazing conditions… nice and fast too… and guess what.. people walking on Chickadee… I did hear a group talking about hiking on the trails and a skier intervened and politely noted that they shouldn’t be walking on the trails and they didn’t… too bad the couple pulling their child in the sled didn’t heat the speech…

“I just received a caĺl from Reg our groomer. They just finished grooming the Green, Purple, Grey, Grey Connector, Black, and Yellow trails, and they are in excellent condition.”
Feb 15-16 We classic and skate skied the beautiful, hilly trails at Falcon Ridge. Craig and Ryan had the trails groomed to perfection, including the High Lake crossing. We had a lovely stay at the Falcon Trails Resort….many thanks to Barb and Craig for their wonderful hospitality!
We did both Classic and Skate today. Conditions are absolutely wonderful in terms of grooming and snow on the trails we skied. We did from the clubhouse to the cabin, the Farm trail, Pine hill around Omega trail, Archie’s Swamp, the bottom of Cottonwood, Blue’s trail and back to the Clubhouse. Skating we did Oak which was almost completed…[Read more]
Conditions are excellent at the park. All classic trails have fresh tracks, and so far the wind has had no negative effect. The Group Use Road, along with the little loops off of it, has also been groomed. As of noon today, the Spruce trail had not been groomed.
Today, Thursday Feb.15. Groomers have gone in first thing this morning and re tracked all trails, thanks to last nights fresh snow. All the debris from the crazy wind is covered and trails are perfect again. Thank you J L , and Len…. Best groomers
