Birch has improved their grooming to another level. The classic tracks are, indeed, excellent and the skate looked very good. No snow in the tracks so come out soon and enjoy. Saw several skiers as well as a couple of families enjoying their ski. Lots of snow in this area.
From Ardythe McMaster on Saturday:
All Bittersweet trails have been freshly groomed and oh my, they do look inviting! The weekend weather looks to be ideal for skiing, with neither falling snow, frigid temperatures, nor howling winds. So skiers, we hope that you will get out there and ski this holiday weekend!

Ski trails have been groomed! Best access is from the golf course parking lot. A wide area for walking has been groomed beside the track. Please use that area and do not walk on the ski trail. Thanks for your cooperation! Map and details can be found at http://www.mordenmb.com/winter

Monday, Feb 11th we classic skied Hecla’s West Quarry trail, and enjoyed the beautiful snow-laden evergreens on these sheltered trails. It’s nice to have double tracks, but they’re often too close to the bushes….sunglasses are recommended to protect your eyes. The trails could use a grooming, as the tracks were shallow with tree litter, canine…[Read more]

Skied Pinawa Sunday afternoon. Came to do the orange loop, but it hadn’t been groomed or even skier tracked since all the recent snow. Opted for the red loops instead. The Derek Martin loop was not groomed but had been reasonably well travelled. The rest of red was good skiing — tracking getting a little worn, but still decent. By the time we’…[Read more]
Skied Seven Sisters Sunday morning. Was intrigued by some olde timey round basket pole prints as we set off. Turns out the vintage skier knew what they were about: the pole plant area was quite soft with deep snow. The tracks, though, were deep and sure and fast. Good skiing.
Skied the four trails at Agassiz Provincial Forest on Sunday. Though it did not warm up as much as I thought it was still a great ski in good well defined tracks through a magnificent winter wonderland. It was pleasant surprise to find a portable toilet now located in the main parking lot off the highway. Also the lean to open shelter on the…[Read more]
