    Got the sled back from the shop today and got straight to grooming. Both classic and skate are groomed and ready for you.

    Groomed at Birch today. Overall, conditions are good, though there was quite a bit of drifting at the end of Fern Gully (skate portion is a bit messy) and just after Mt Neverest (snowmobile packed but not groomed). Plumbing is still not functional in the Chalet, so plan accordingly.

    Trails were groomed yesterday and are ready for your weekend of skiing up and down the Manitoba Escarpment. **plumbing is still not functional in the Chalet, so plan accordingly.

    Birch has improved their grooming to another level. The classic tracks are, indeed, excellent and the skate looked very good. No snow in the tracks so come out soon and enjoy. Saw several skiers as well as a couple of families enjoying their ski. Lots of snow in this area.

    After grooming today: skate’s good, classic’s great! If you were on the fence about whether or not to check out Birch, do it this weekend!

    • If your plan is to Ski Birch this wknd, be aware that the chalet’s plumbing is still frozen ☹️🥶… so maybe a bathroom stop in Carman, Miami, Notre Dame, or St. Claude on your way here?

    Skied a lap of the classic trail here yesterday after a visit to Pumpkin Creek. Lovely grooming – we were flying. The two friendly mousers in the clubhouse were a very welcome (and welcoming!) addition.

    Weekend Update: Classic tracks are groomed and ready to go. Our homemade skate groomer broke, so until we fix it, skate ski at your own peril. We’ll post as soon as the skate trails are ready for you.

    Thanks for the ski yesterday Birch! Trails are in great shape – keep up the good work! The kids loved the hills! Beautiful area. Having the space in the chalet for kids to change, chill (bring a board game!), snack, etc., is really great for families! We’ll be joining as founding members to support “Birch is back”!

    Thanks to everyone who was out for the Birch Kids Day today!. Tomorrow, for everyone not out at the Manitoba Loppet, come on out to Birch for the ‘Birch is Back’ Ski Tour. The 5K south trails will be great, the chalet warm, and the soup and chocolate hot!!

    After not having a ski season at Birch last year I was reminded today how special and fun these trails really are. The classic tracks were in very good condition and the hills are wonderful. Snow was falling as I was leaving so fresh grooming will be needed. Sure, there are less trails groomed than in past years but I’m sure you won’t mind…[Read more]

    5km of classic groomed and ready for you hardy folks on this brisk weekend. Skate 5k is hard packed, but not recently regroomed.

    5K skate is groomed and 2.5K classic — lots of snow to groom, so we only we’re able to get 2.5K classic done. But it is awesome!

    Classic trials re-groomed this morning. Skate trails handled the warm temperatures well and are great.

    Birch trails (south trails) were groomed Friday for skate and classic – several people out skiing today said the trails were great! Will be a wonderful day of skiing on Sunday – get out and ski!

    Hey everyone – Ski Birch is back!!!

    The south trails (2.5K and 5k) have been groomed for skate and classic.

    We are a completely new club and we are using some quite experienced grooming equipment so trails are not quite at the previous level of excellence of the previous groomers / grooming equipment.
    Trail fees are $5 per individual and $10…[Read more]
