Latest Updates

  • It is cold out here but sunny so if dressed properly a ski is OK. The trails on the east side of RMNP are all in good shape. We added Scott Creek to trails we are track setting. We are happy to say we have 30 eager xc skiers in our Ski Manitoba 150 Challenge. We post their updates on how many km they have skied on our Facebook page. Think Snow.

  • Yah, I know it’s cold but Windsor Park is in near mint condition for classic and skating and has double classic tracks in the traditional places. Get out and enjoy.

  • Like mentioned BHP was groomed…tracks are deep and firm.. snow is obviously pretty abrasive considering the temp and the new snow.. dress accordingly if heading out..Blue stem was great! Thanks BHP for the great job grooming!

    Skied Beaudry early this morn before the crowds came. Beautiful and sunny but need grooming and lots of damage from walkers

  • Just got back from skiing Chickadee at BHP. The trail was perfectly groomed as were the others , including the skate trails. – 25 but what a pleasure to ski on these firm and surprisingly fast tracks.
    Well done BHP! While we’re at it , I should add that I have not encountered walkers on the ski trails since Dec. 31. Thanks to improved signage and…[Read more]

    As we continue to work with minimum snow… Don groomed all of Blue Moon, Stroll and Baby Moon last night, said they looked pretty good! Roger’s Pass re-groomed but could use a skiff of snow. As for Club Trail and Easy Street, better to ski those in as not enough snow for equipment. Thx everyone!

  • Jan 23- All of Blue Moon trail was groomed last night. Lots of good skiable sections as we work with minimal snow. Baby Moon and Stroll re-groomed. Roger’s Pass re-groomed but could use a skiff of snow, Club Trail and Easy Street not groomed, need more snow, better to ski it in. Ski on everyone!

  • Skate skied the west trails in Camp Morton out in Gimli today! Quite a bit of falling snow and definitely a workout moving through their 5+ km trail but snow was fast considering the amount to ski through. The trip to Gimli is well worth it for anybody and all ski abilites. It’s a blast out there and some of the most beautiful trails I have…[Read more]

    From Andy Dwilow on Saturday afternoon:
    Outstanding classic and skate grooming with terrain. Thx for great day.

  • From Joanne Podolchuk, Birds Hill Park’s District Park Manager, early on Saturday evening:
    The groomer will be out this evening. All trails should be groomed / track set barring any equipment issues.  Any skiers out this evening should exercise caution with the groomer on trails.

    Sandilands trails this afternoon were faster than we expected. Black and gray trails were in great condition. Green, while more used at the N end, was in good shape except for one hill on the NE side. Although we enjoyed skiing yellow, it looks like someone drove there before the most recent snow. It needs grooming.

  • Alison Steele posted an update in the group Group logo of PinawaPinawa 3 days, 12 hours ago

    We had a wonderful classic ski on the blue, green and part of the red trails early Saturday afternoon. While there was a light new snowfall on all of green (English River); blue and red were well skied in with great glide. The soft conditions made for safer downhills, and it wasn’t busy until later. The trees were beautifully coated in white and…[Read more]

    Skated the Oak Meadow and Skaters Waltz. A few thin spots but easy to dodge so I did 2 laps. My complements to Scott Smart who is obviously a talented groomer!

  • Went this AM with “the kid”; arrived about noon. Lots of cars in the parking lot and down access road. Snowing like mad, but trail traffic packed it nicely, so kick and glide were great. Skied the ” the Beav” in dead silence: magnificent. Total snowfall about 4″, the track perfect.

    Skied squirrel and beaver to the warming hut. Lots of new snow! The track was slow with the new snow. Going down the hills was a real treat!

  • XCSkiBirch posted an update in the group Group logo of BirchBirch 3 days, 15 hours ago

    We smoothed out the skate lanes and they’re in decent shape for the most part. Debris on Mt. Neverest, and a few other sections, and still too little snow to smooth out the lumps in Fern Gully. No classic tracks, as the tracks would still go down to ground in many sections.

  • Gary posted an update in the group Group logo of Portage la PrairiePortage la Prairie 3 days, 21 hours ago

    Trails in the older more sheltered areas are in fair condition.

    Trails out in the open have many icy spots and are in poor condition except for the one that is closest to the lake which is in fair condition.

    There’s also a trail on the lake near the golf course. It is a little bit snowed in but would improve with some traffic.

    No grooming…[Read more]

  • Nothing has been groomed or maintained. Rather disappointing . GUR is rough with parallel tracks making things awkward a few boot tracks and a few skate tracks. New snow is cold and slow. Should get better as weekend goes by and the usual weekend crowds pack it down.
    The classic tracks are totally worn out, especially around the parking lots.…[Read more]

    • I agree that there is plenty of snow to groom for any club with utility snowmobile grooming equipment, a 10,000 lb piece of grooming equipment is not always the best. CCSAM needs to work with parks to provide better grooming. BPH has only groomed once this year.

    • While the “not enough snow to groom” is somewhat believable for classic, it is untrue for the skate. Windsor, who have less snow to work with, somehow manage to keep refreshing the skate deck. Surely BHP with its expensive pistenbully could do the same. Frustrating for sure. It’s late Jan. We may not have much more than a month to ski.

    Classic tracks are really nice – thanks Jim! Brent’s Loop is a bit icy, and there are a couple of patches of grass, otherwise, all good. Stepping off the tracks/skate deck you realize how awful and thin the icy snow is, and just how great the grooming is! Wood bridges closed… they’re bare.

  • 4 or 5 cm of fresh snow fell on yesterday’s (Thursday) grooming which has improved conditions and leveled out the skate deck. All classic tracks are now well skied in and in good condition. The new snow has covered all the sand and rocks (I only saw one rock at the bottom of “Suicide Hill”, a.k.a. The Wall). The Beaver is not groomed beyond the…[Read more]
