We classic skied Pinawa at noon on Monday, and found the hills on the Red trail too icy, so we skied the Golf Course trail. It was being groomed as we skied, and was in good shape, but fast. All glide and no kick, but a gorgeous day to be out! More snow is needed to make these trails last.
Trails groomed for skate again today. Conditions are good after the snow shovelling party on the weekend. we were able to stop those bare spots from growing!
Sunday 4-7pm. Trails were very good, just getting slicker in shaded areas , and icy in sunny places. Still using Rode Pink 0+3C. The sticky wax works well and is durable, and just need to double pole in sunny places, as klister would still be too much. In deep woods, the trails are in fantastic condition. The GUR Skate trail looks very good.
Saturday and Sunday Mid afternoon – Skate holding up nicely… classic you could see it looked like a slurpee in places.. Graveyard loop has a grass patch on the North side early going on the right side.. if you’re night skiing stay left.. slushy coming off blue oval to little dip to black diamond.. theres a dog bomb also on the 2nd uphill right…[Read more]
4-6Pm Saturday. Trails were fine and chiseled. On the slippery side, but Rode pink wax 0-+3 took good care of that. Don’t want to admit this, but looking for a day off to relax tired muscles, but dayum,…. the conditions are so amazingly good out here .
Classic trails were all groomed by 3:00 and were fast – they should set up nicely for the weekend. Sadly, there are a few areas beneath large evergreens with thin snow and grass showing through….wish we had more snow!
From Darryl Hrechkosy on Friday morning:
My cousin and I skied Pinawa on February 20/20. The Blue and English Trails could do with a grooming as I found some down hills and turns a bit sketchy, but other than the usual rock showing here and there very little debris in tracks and decent snow coverage. The warming hut there now has wood. The Golf…[Read more]
From Joanne Podolchuk, Park District Manager, Birds Hill Provincial Park on Thursday morning:
Ski Trails will be groomed/track set on Friday, February 21.
As of 5:00 Thursday, Esker and Lime Kiln had been freshly groomed and were in pristine condition with very good glide. Aspen and Chickadee were ungroomed with lots of debris in the tracks. Glide was excellent despite the debris.
Yes, Anita was pleased to see Esker freshly groomed when she got to the tower from the Chickadee parking lot. We skied at BHP today knowing the grooming was 6 days old, but suspecting that the classic tracks and the Group Use Road would still be in great condition, which they were. We didn’t think the tree debris was much of a factor.
Thinking of hitting up these trails this weekend (coming from Regina). How are the trials? Is there enough snow? We have little to no snow here.:(
