    All skate trails were groomed today. Classic trails were all groomed except for Big Woods, which we missed, but we will get it skied in tomorrow.

  • Trails groomed Wednesday after it snowed. Another inch or two of snow fell Thursday. Most of the trails have since been skied (skier tracked) so it’s in great shade. The beautiful forest sheltered me from the 36 km/h wind.

  • Did west Bluestem Fri. mid afternoon.Freshly groomed.Wonderful sunshine and cold.Glide was fair,a bit jerky in spots with a wee bit of snow blown in in spots.More traffic would help so get out there and enjoy!

  • Trails freshly groomed and are in great shape.

  • From Syd Jones, Birds Hill Park’s Park Operations Supervisor, on Friday afternoon:
    Victor’s team worked hard today to prepare the park for the weekend.
    The roads have been plowed and trails are ready for use.
    The fresh snow should improve the trail conditions. We apologize now for any problems the windy conditions cause. We tried to control t…[Read more]

  • Hello !!! Friday January 27, 2023 Fresh snow, large drifts but our favourite Pumpkin Creek groomer has already groomed the whole system as of 2pm today Friday.
    Please note, Don said it is still a bit windy in the valley so he may have…[Read more]

    I skied at Beaudry today. Elm and Grape were in very good shape. Across the river, Basswood was in amazing shape. Cottonwood was only skier tracked and rough though. And across the other river, Maple was in really good shape too.

  • Thursday late afternoon I was the first ski-jorer on soft corduroy on the north loops of the Spruce Trail. Trail was a bit softer than usual, but great for the dogs, and the forest provided shelter from the nasty wind. Many thanks to park staff for maintaining this great trail!

    HI ALL
    Due to this cold snap which is forecasted to linger for a couple of weeks, the Mystery Tour is being rescheduled to SUNDAY FEB 26th, 2023.
    We want to give our event the best chance for good weather seeing amazing little clubhouse could use the help to accommodate everyone inside and outside.
    This new date was selected in order to not…[Read more]

  • So, me and my friend G hit the trails at noon, Jan 25 in the heat of the day. Skied outgoing Esker to Chick,crossed over to Bluestem, did the Aspen loop west of Chick and then Esk back to the stables. The new snow had been skied in, the tracks well defined, and the glide was magnificent. No wind,and sunshine. Great ski on green wax.

    Birds Hill Park, Tuesday afternoon, -10°.
    Skate ski on the Group Use Road and the two internal bays: 5+ cm of snow has fallen on the park since Sunday evening. Manitoba Parks’ Interactive Map says the GUR was last groomed on Friday. Parts of the road were somewhat slow in the loose snow: the two internal bays and west of the Chickadee parking…[Read more]

    • Parks says it was groomed but it wasn’t…I was there Sunday, and it was in the same shape it was the previous weekend.. similar was stated about Spruce Trail for skate as well.. seemed they did some classic on Friday and didnt bother with the skate trails..

  • Wildwood was groomed today, Jan 24 in the am, but by around 3pm the tracks were fairly sloppy, snow very not firm, and had seen a lot of use on the stretch closest to Oakenwald. The city of Winnipeg tree removal has impacted the trails in that they have plowed areas that cut across the tracks at a number of points – have to navigate over 4 foot…[Read more]

  • We skied the full Beaver pond trail on Mon. 23rd. Certainly agree with previous post, trail that crosses Creek has never been groomed, I don’t think this year. Information of this should be posted at the parking lot and it would be nice if there were MAPS available, as we don’t ski this area very often. There was fresh snow overnight, trail was…[Read more]

  • Excellent grooming — classic and skate — at the Windsor Park Nordic Centre on Monday evening, at least on the west side of the river where we held our Jackrabbits session.

  • lynnmcmaster posted an update in the group Group logo of BittersweetBittersweet 4 days, 3 hours ago

    Bittersweet received 3-4 cm of light snow today. Nevertheless the classic trails are still providing good skiing. With more snow in the forecast Tuesday and Thursday, currently we plan to groom the classic trails on Friday, with the trails skied-in until then.
    We plan to groom the skate trails Tuesday afternoon and will assess whether they…[Read more]

  • Sunday skate at BHP, evident it hasnt been groomed for a while.. the report says it was groomed on the 20th, but it sure didnt seem like it.. hard packed up the middle, loose snow on the edges… in all honesty looked the same as it did the previous weekend I was there.. still good conditions and no boot traffic which is always a nice bonus…

  • Floyd Reichel posted an update in the group Group logo of SandilandsSandilands 4 days, 11 hours ago

    Trails were very good to excellent here Sunday. The Red Trail has not been groomed past the Horse Pond.
