I skied on the Aspen trail at Birds Hill Park on Tues. and was pleasantly surprised to find the trail beautifully groomed , having thought the BHP trails were only groomed on Thursdays. Great job Parks staff! Does anyone know what the current grooming policy is for BHP?
All trails including GUR skate ,are in very good shape. GUR looks very flat and fast, no boot tracks and only a few skate marks on the cordouroy. Just some tree debris on all trails from the windstorm on Tuesday, but the warmer weather, no wind and fresh grooming make up for it.
On Tuesday at noon our group skied all four amazing loops of this wonderful single classic trail system. Tracks are in great shape and so sheltered from the wind…..a perfect day to be out! Thanks to the Nilsson family for their excellent care and grooming – sure love these trails!
Skied the grey trail this afternoon. I just wanted to warn everyone that there is a big sheet of ice near the bottom of one of the hills. You cannot see it at the top of the hill as there is a curve just before you hit the ice. Be very careful!!
From Al Stewart on Monday evening:
I skied this afternoon on Lime Kiln and Esker. The grooming was outstanding, the trails were out of Trax Magazine. The trees were laden with snow, the sky was bright blue, the temperature was cold but the wind was not a factor in the forest. I had excellent grip and decent glide with Rode Special Green.

New to the group! but felt i should update what i experienced at Birds Hill yesterday. Was skiing Esker, Chickpea, Kiln area and had horse riders go through those areas and destroy all the tracks. left a lot of skiers show shoeing back from chickpea to the parking lot. Does this normally happen?

Road from Roseisle was cleared by Dufferin. Valley Road from Notre Dame de Lourdes not cleared yet but Lorne plough should be thru soon.

From Karen Nilsson, President of the Lac du Bonnet Cross Country Ski Club on Sunday evening:
The trails were groomed this evening. So beautiful out there with the fresh snow on the trees! Should be in excellent shape for tomorrow.
11 Charleswood Ski Club members skied all the trails that had been groomed on Saturday. (See http://sandilands.ca/the-trails). 5 cm of new snow was on top of the grooming; it`s now been well skied-in. Many other people were also skiing. It was a very good day at Sandilands.
The fresh snow and especially the blow all but obliterated the ski tracks from the last grooming. But when they next groom, it will be fantastic! All the snow you could ask for. We tracked in everything but the westernmost and southernmost trails, but they may drift in pretty quick.
We really appreciated all the new upgrades at James Lake. The…[Read more]
