    North trails are now groomed – skate & classic side-by-side. Going to be a gorgeous day out here today.

    An inch of snow has fallen on the classic tracks since the last grooming but they are now skied in and will likely get groomed this Saturday. A new batch of hoarfrost (or whatever they are calling it these days) lies heavily everywhere.

    Skied the North trails after the race today. So amazing. Firm, wide, fast skate track (with classic on the side). Big uphills and downhills, but if you like that, the North Trails at Ski Birch are 100% the place to ski right now. In 30 years of skiing them, I have to say today was the one of the best ever. There is one spot in the open…[Read more]

    All trails are groomed, AND a special section has been groomed, for Saturday’s Birchkin Pumpski, connecting our trails with the Pumpkin Creek trails. Check skibirch.Wordpress.com for event details.

    Near perfection grooming at Birch today. The skate deck is as firm as I have ever seen it making it excellent for skating. Come enjoy it this Saturday for the Birchkin Pumpski where you have the opportunity to ski both trail systems, Birch and Pumpkin Creek.

    Both North & South Loops have been groomed today for classic and skate. Enjoy!

    South Loop will be closed from 1-2pm today for the second of the Canada Winter Games – Selection Races. South Loop is in great shape for both classic and skate. North Loops are groomed for skate only.

    Excellent grooming at Birch today with a firm skate deck. The new grooming equipment is doing an excellent job.

    Merry Christmas! North trails are now classic tracked, as well.

  • XCSkiBirch posted an update in the group Group logo of BirchBirch 1 month, 1 week ago

    South Loop is regroomed for both classic and skate. North Loop is groomed for skate only.

    Beautiful winter wonderland at Birch with tons of snow. Grooming was very good, particularly classic tracks. Was snowing lightly as I left.

    A few days of packing and grooming mean that our south loop is in really good shape, and the shorter North 2.5, as well. The longer North 5 is not open yet. There’s a race on Sunday from 1-2pm, but other than that, if the roads are good, come out for a ski at Birch!

    Thanks to this currently occurring snowfall, Ski Birch will be opening for the season on Saturday, Dec. 17th. We are hosting the Provincial Team’s Canada Winter Games Selection Races from 1-2:30 on Saturday, and from 11 – 12:30 on Sunday, so the South Loop will be closed to recreational skiers during those times. The North Loop will still be o…[Read more]

    Just talked to groomer Derek -> Ski Birch is not yet ready for skiing. We need about 10cm more snow. When Birch is ready, it will be posted here.

    By the way, grooming equipment got a big upgrade this past year and it is ready to go once we get more snow.

    And looking forward to the Birchkin Pumpski recreational ski from Birch to Pumpkin Creek…[Read more]

    We’re still waiting on some more snow before we’re able to open up the trails for the season. Check back here, or on social media @xcskibirch, for updates.

    We had a good ski at Birch yesterday: we did laps of both North and South trails. The only detail I’d add to Birch’s update below is that there is still a ton of snow here! There were only one or two tiny patches of ground peeking through, in exposed areas of North loop. The South loop is perfect and everywhere forested should be good for a whi…[Read more]
