    From Ardythe McMaster:
    All trails at Bittersweet were groomed Wednesday and Thursday. Today, Friday, it snowed lightly all day with about 2 cm of ‘feathers’. Skiers today reported that conditions were excellent, and that only the lead skier had to ‘break trail’, while everyone else just enjoyed the ride. The weekend promises to be even better.

    The Skiing Conditions were excellent Friday afternoon with an inch of fresh snow on the tracks. We skiied about half the trails and the fresh snow was beautiful, and made the tracks a little slower but once the first person through packed it, it was actually pretty fast. Have a great Ski!

    Wednesday afternoon all of the trails on the lower part were freshly done: Reggies Run, Farm Trail, Pine Hill, Omega Trail and Blue’s, and Archie’s Swamp. We met Don and Ardythe on the groomer who said that the Cottonwood would likely be done Friday morning. The skate ski trails had a couple of inches on them. Thanks to the groomers for a job…[Read more]

    From Ardythe McMaster on Tuesday morning:
    The snow and the winds have buried our trails! It will be later in the week before we can prepare them for good skiing, and we will definitely have all trails groomed for the weekend.

    From Ardythe McMaster:
    After another lovely snowfall, Bittersweet is a winter wonderland. All the classic trails have been groomed, and skiers report them to be in excellent condition. Unfortunately, mechanical troubles have prevented our groomers from completing the skate trails, but given a couple of days for family Christmas, we are pretty sure…[Read more]

    From Ardythe McMaster:
    Here at Bittersweet we have snow ongoing, with 6 cm so far. Skiers will appreciate that there is no point in grooming while it is snowing. When the snow ends, we will be out grooming for holiday skiers. Merry Christmas, Everyone!

    From Ardythe McMaster:
    On Wednesday, while Winnipeg was experiencing periods of rain, we were having snow! About 3 inches (7 cm) fell through the afternoon and into the evening. It was just what was needed! The trails were beginning to be pretty tired and worn, and the warm temps were not helping. The new snow filled in some softening snow, and…[Read more]

    The recent warm temperatures have taken their toll on the trails but you can still have an enjoyable ski if you take a few precautions. Conditions are very fast and there is less snow to control your speed. There are a few dirt patches that are avoidable and, as Elise mentioned, one large patch on the upper half of the Red trail which should not…[Read more]

    Bittersweet was impeccably groomed as always, and the snow was holding up quite well in the warm weather. Conditions were very fast but snow was soft and deep enough to throw out the occasional half snowplough where needed. We skied nearly every classic trail and the snow cover is good to great throughout – but watch out for one bare patch on Red…[Read more]

    The conditions at Bittersweet continue to be very good. The snow is cold and the classic tracks are still well defined. Get out and enjoy.

  • Floyd Reichel posted an update in the group Group logo of BittersweetBittersweet 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Leave your rock skis at home. The Bittersweet trails are in mid season form with very good conditions due to having more snow than Winnipeg. The classic tracks are rock solid and the skate trail looks to be in excellent shape. Only a few dirt spots in the classic track which can be easily avoided. Found a blue MEC toque in the Nordic Center so…[Read more]

    • I would like to clarify my description of the classic tracks. They are perfectly formed and FIRM (just the way you would want them). They are not icy. Safe conditions prevail at Bittersweet. Enjoy.

    From Ardythe McMaster:
    The trails are ready!
    The hunting season ended, and the groomers set to work. All trails, classic and skate, are groomed and ready, and they look mighty inviting.
    The parking lot is plowed. The Nordic Centre is warm, and there will be coffee and cookies on the weekend. Join us!

    We thank those who have already renewed their…[Read more]

    With a skiff of new snow on the trails we renovated Oak Meadow and Skaters Waltz skate trails this morning with the Ginzu. One bare patch on the uphill to Sunshine Hill, but otherwise we still have a good base on those trails. We’ll ski the skate trails later this afternoon and report. We have no plans at this time to renovate the classic…[Read more]

    From Ardythe McMaster on Friday afternoon:
    Bittersweet
    We surveyed all the trails this morning. We found that the skate trails look to be in good condition. The Cottonwood trails remain closed, having too many bare spots. However, the following trails looked fairly good, so we will be renovating them Saturday morning: North Star, Caleb’s Way, S…[Read more]

    anybody know how the bittersweet trails are holding up?

    • I was just there after school today. Still pretty good considering the weather. There’s a sign telling people to avoid a couple south facing hills. Icy in a few places but generally still good conditions.

  • DaleK posted an update in the group Group logo of BittersweetBittersweet 10 months, 3 weeks ago

    Most trails were groomed today (Wednesday) and are in very good to excellent condition. The base is a little thin and needs the “big” snow expected on the weekend but if you can make it out before the weekend, you will experience some good skiing..

  • DaleK posted an update in the group Group logo of BittersweetBittersweet 10 months, 4 weeks ago

    Today (Tuesday) skate skiing conditions were good in the early afternoon with the temperature between -2 and 0. Classic conditions were also good yesterday on the trails we did: North Star, Farm, Pine hill, and Omega. The snow is starting to get old and new snow on the weekend would be wonderful. I recommend skiing both the Classic and Skate at…[Read more]

    Conditions were great on Saturday for skate and classic all over. We skied almost every trail. What a gem! Trails were fast (but not icy fast, just well-groomed fast) for classic.

  • DaleK posted an update in the group Group logo of BittersweetBittersweet 11 months, 1 week ago

    We did both Classic and Skate today. Conditions are absolutely wonderful in terms of grooming and snow on the trails we skied. We did from the clubhouse to the cabin, the Farm trail, Pine hill around Omega trail, Archie’s Swamp, the bottom of Cottonwood, Blue’s trail and back to the Clubhouse. Skating we did Oak which was almost completed…[Read more]

    From Ardythe McMaster:
    Here at Bittersweet, we have good snow! As always, all of our trails will be freshly groomed for the weekend, the coffee will be on, and the cookie jars will be full.
