Agassiz Provincial Forest

  • From Karen Nilsson, President of the Lac du Bonnet Cross Country Ski Club on Saturday morning:
    The Skandic was put away for the season, so trails will not be groomed. However, I cannot resist trying to go out and plow my own trail today. Dug my skis out of the closet. Someone figured us skiers needed a covid break! Hope everyone is healthy.

  • From Karen Nilsson, President of the Lac du Bonnet Cross Country Ski Club on Sunday morning:
    Skied yesterday, trails were still quite good. Best place to be right now! Trails have not been groomed, not necessary, and likely wouldn’t do much. Hopefully, cool weather will continue.

  • A friend wrote on Monday morning:
    I skied the Green and Blue trails yesterday, and they were actually quite good. We didn’t get a lot of snow last Wednesday in Lac du Bonnet, so it just took people skiing to “groom” them. We had a tiny bit of snow last night. Trails should be wonderful at these temps. I hope to get out again myself today.…[Read more]

  • From Karen Nilsson, President of the Lac du Bonnet Cross Country Ski Club on Monday morning:
    We skied yesterday. Trails were surprisingly good yet. Very enjoyable.

  • Skied Blue & Red trails today – other than debris, they’re still in great condition. The worst debris was on the connector trail.

  • Sorry to miss you guys on the trails, they were certainly near perfect!

  • 15 members of Nature Manitoba’s Grey Hares skied all loops of the Agassiz Provincial Forest trails in different directions on Wednesday. We disagree with Karen Nilsson’s daughter’s assessment of the trails: they aren’t “not bad”, they are very good!

  • From Karen Nilsson, President of the Lac du Bonnet Cross Country Ski Club on Tuesday afternoon:
    Carl isn’t planning on grooming the trails until after the snow expected Wed night / Thurs. Our daughter did the Blue and Red yesterday, said they were not bad.

  • I’ve been told that on Saturday the trails were crusty from freezing rain, but they received a few cm of new snow overnight Saturday to Sunday.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Trails groomed and in good condition. Come on out for a new years ski !!!
    Thank you Carl and Karen.

  • From Karen Nilsson, President of the Lac du Bonnet Cross Country Ski Club on Monday morning:
    We only got about two inches of snow. Satellite shows a possible small system coming through sometime before noon yet today, so Carl was going to groom the trails later this afternoon so they can freeze up overnite. Should be good for tomorrow.

  • Skied the Agassiz trails for the first time today. No change to conditions since the last update. Rock skis still recommended, until we get more coverage. The best snow right now can be found on the Blue loop.

  • Six Charleswood Ski Club members skied a couple laps of the Lac du Bonnet Cross Country Ski Club’s 11K trail network in the Agassiz Provincial Forest on Saturday. Conditions were very good considering how little snow has fallen so far this winter.

    We saw about a dozen rocks at various places along the trails. I tried to pay attention to the…[Read more]

  • From Karen Nilsson, President of the Lac du Bonnet Cross Country Ski Club on Tuesday:
    Carl tracked the trails today, and although the track gets a little thin in the rocky areas, the trails are ready to go! Happy Skiing!
