  • Did Esker and Lime Kiln late this afternoon, trails in great condition since grooming, glide was ok and not many have ventured out in the cold by the looks of it.

  • 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!

  • 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]

    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!

    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..

  • 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…

  • From Syd Jones, Birds Hill Park’s Park Operations Supervisor, on Friday afternoon:
    The trails are in not bad shape all considering (lack of snow). The tracks may be icy so be careful, and any hill areas may lack snow coverage in spots.

  • Weds.a.m.,did west Bluestem.Any new snow has been well worked in.Excellent conditions and lightning fast.

  • Tuesday afternoon, Birds Hill Park — Chickadee, Esker, LimeKiln, Bluestem, east Aspen (all classic trails except west Aspen), -10°.
    ~1 cm of snow had fallen on the trail system overnight. The new snow was in various states of having been skied-in, so yesterday’s fast trails were slightly slower to much slower today.

  • Monday afternoon we skied parts of Chickadee, Esker and west Bluestem. Tracks were firm and fast with excellent conditions. Lots of other skiers out enjoying them too. Thanks to BHP staff!

  • From Syd Jones, Birds Hill Park’s Park Operations Supervisor, on Friday afternoon:
    The trails have been groomed in Birds Hill Park for the weekend. Hope you have an enjoyable skiing experience, supposed to be a beautiful weekend.

    Groomed today – perfect!
    Protected well enough that big south wind had little effect.
    Thanks grooming team

    Good news for skate skiers. GUR was freshly combed today.
    Classic trails? Let’s hope that BHP can freshen them up tomorrow.
    Why wait for -25c? Let’s go skiers!

    • On Thursday I heard that the Spruce trail has been freshly combed as well. We skied parts of Bluestem, Chickadee and Esker; and tracks were all in really nice shape with a light dusting of new snow.

  • Another great ski today….just want to thank the Park staff for the beautifully groomed trails!

  • A post on the A Cross Country Ski Club Facebook group on Saturday says: “BHP GUR skate is in really good condition, a light layer of fresh snow from yesterday morning and a grooming probably done Thursday. The two humps that ran down the the road last week have been groomed out. Flat and smooth now. Except for the vehicle that went down from t…[Read more]

  • Friday afternoon, Birds Hill Park, -13°, light wind, snow flurries.
    Chickadee, Esker, Lime Kiln, west Aspen.
    ~1 cm of fluffy snow slowed down the tracks a little bit. Conditions were A+, as they have been for the past two weeks. Quite a few people were skiing, including a few families.
