Latest Updates

  • Surprisingly good conditions. I skied 16 km this morning. Saw a few other skiers and one fat biker.

  • WARM WEATHER FORECAST may be hard on the trails this week. There are no plans to close this week, as this could be the last few days of the season at the center (we hope not!). The anticipated freezing each night will help a great deal in keeping the snowcover as long as possible.

    Had a wonderful ski at Pumpkin Creek Monday on fresh grooming. The snow was cold with great glide and any icy conditions were covered. There were a few areas where grass or dirt is showing so you may not want to bring your best skis although all obstacles were easy to avoid. Looking forward to next year when we can do the always enjoyable…[Read more]

  • Sunday Feb 28th – Don groomed in the evening Baby Moon , Stroll, Roger’s Pass and all of the Blue Moon loops.

  • Has anybody been out since the recent warm weather? I would like to head out there , but am not interested in killing myself. EZ, you have been out there lately: any news?

    • A facebook report from yesterday showed what looked like a nice image… they said an inch of new snow had fallen, and no bare patches.. not fast conditions.

      • Friends of mine attempted to ski there last Wednesday only to abandon their effort and go elsewhere. A Parks employee told me today that they have not received any snow there since Feb.5.

    Has anybody been out since the ” big thaw”? I am concerned that the trails have gotten icy and dangerous. Looking forward to some news.

  • Sunday 4 P.M. classic west bluestem was very good thanks to the new snow.No bare spots and very little debris.

  • Sunday afternoon we skied the quiet forested trails at Pine Falls. There was a skiff of new snow over hard-packed crusty tracks, and evergreen debris on some sections, but overall good. The new snow helped somewhat on the hilly sections, but snowplowing was difficult with the icy surface beneath.

    Anyone skated the GUR at Birds Hill recently?

    • quite a few skiers out in the GUR today, the fresh snow had been worked in. Only the odd slip on the ice below where it hadn’t been skied in yet, it was a bit slow -16C when I was there

    Very good conditions at Windsor today. Skied the Blue only. Skate freshly groomed. The few thin spots I saw were easily avoided. Classic looks to be in good shape too. Black diamond, river loops, and Jimmy’s Dip were hard packed, but had enough snow to feel safe.

    From David Lumgair on Friday evening:
    Hello ski folks,
    Shannondale welcomes you!
    Yes, 2 or 3 inches of snow has fallen very recently, and we groomed it!
    The 2 weeks weather forecast suggests 2 days for skiing and then it melts a little every day.
    That would be this Sunday and Monday!…[Read more]

  • Notre Dame had 3″ of snow this week. La Perdrix trails packed and groomed early Sunday morning Feb 28th.

  • Gary posted an update in the group Group logo of BittersweetBittersweet 3 days, 1 hour ago

    I skied all of the skate trails yesterday afternoon. There was about 2 cm of fresh snow and very few bare spots. More snow is falling today and I anticipate another go at it tomorrow.

  • Figured yesterday would be a day for klister, given the icy conditions elsewhere and the warm temps and rain on the drive up. But ended up using polar wax, thanks to a dropping thermometer and a thin skim of fresh-fallen snow (which became a medium skim, by the time we left). Conditions exceeded expectations.

    The base has become somewhat icy and…[Read more]

    Tempest was mediocre
    The hump is good.
    The knob is…[Read more]

  • All trails groomed on Friday night. 3 cms of fresh snow has made a world of difference to the ski trails. Great looking corduroy on the skate trails. Expectations are that trails will be in great shape until, at least, early next week!

    Two foot base and freshly groomed as of February 25. Good conditions on all trails. Chalet gate is open and parking area is available there as well as parking at Pelican Point trailhead. If you are unfamiliar with the trails check the map at the trailhead and follow the colored arrows clockwise around the loops.

  • Did bluestem this morning.. tracks are still excellent.. watch out for lots of pinecone debris especially in the first km or so of the trail.. I used skins on a compacted/ice mix and they worked out OK.. they were a little draggy at times, but I had the binding set forward..could probably back it off and got some more glide..at about the 7km mark…[Read more]

    From Ardythe McMaster on Thursday evening:
    We were excited to have 4.5 cm fresh fluffy snow on Wednesday morning. Unfortunately, it proved just too little to enable a good grooming job, groomer’s skills notwithstanding. Skiers should ski only on trails which have been freshly groomed.
