    All skate trails were groomed today. Classic trails were all groomed except for Big Woods, which we missed, but we will get it skied in tomorrow.

    Bittersweet received 3-4 cm of light snow today. Nevertheless the classic trails are still providing good skiing. With more snow in the forecast Tuesday and Thursday, currently we plan to groom the classic trails on Friday, with the trails skied-in until then.
    We plan to groom the skate trails Tuesday afternoon and will assess whether they…[Read more]

    We skied all the classic trails yesterday. All are in good shape except for a blow out of the track at the bottom of the hill on Blue Jay. All skate trails in good shape

    First time at Bittersweet today and it was great! Trails are in great shape, really well signed and the promise of a cookie made the last couple uphills easier! Something for everyone, rolling trails and steep fun ones at the far end.

    Thank you SOOO much to all who showed up at the Candlelight Ski!!! We had around 40 people, which exceeded our expectations. We had a lot of fun, and hope that everyone there did too! We will be making it an annual event for sure. On a grooming note, skate trails are being groomed as we speak.

    Hey all, the Candlelight Ski is a go. The bit of snow we had has slowed the trails down to a normal speed now. Wax for normal temperatures again. Note: Because the candlelight trail will be 2 way, a few spots have had the trail removed (corners, hills) to encourage snow plowing to slow yourself down, to avoid collision with would be oncoming…[Read more]

    Skate trails were groomed this morning.

    Remember Bittersweet’s Candlelight Ski this Saturday January 7, 7-9 pm. See details under 2023 Events above.

    Classic trails are in good condition. There is a very thin layer of fallen hoarfrost in some trails, but the trails are still very fast and skiers are using grip wax warmer than temperatures would indicate to get good kick. Skate trails…[Read more]

    Skate trails in excellent condition, except for a few spots with a soft middle. Classic trails all groomed today. In excellent condition.

  • lynnmcmaster posted an update in the group Group logo of BittersweetBittersweet 1 month ago

    Skate trails freshly groomed. Some classic trails are snow filled, others have been skied in. Grooming of classic trails to begin tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon.

  • lynnmcmaster posted an update in the group Group logo of BittersweetBittersweet 1 month ago

    Classic trails range from drifted snow (Caleb’s Way) to good on sheltered trails. Skate trails are ungroomed with 5-10 cm fresh snow.
    Grooming today has been delayed due to freezing rain. Current plan is to groom skate trails tonight, and all classic trails tomorrow evening.

    Save the date: Jan. 7, 7-9 pm. Candlelight Ski (weather permitting). See details above

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

    All classic and skate trails are groomed and ready to go and in good condition. Nordic Centre is open and there are cookies! Enjoy!!

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

    The east side classic trails were groomed today and are ready to ski (Thanks Scott!). Skate trails are being packed again tonight, and we will hopefully get them groomed tomorrow, along with the west side classic trails. The Nordic Centre will be opened in the morning.

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

    Sorry folks trails are not ready yet. Some equipment challenges and the amount of snow we are still getting has delayed grooming. All classic trails are re-packed and ready for grooming as soon as we are able. We will keep you posted.

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

    All classic trails have been packed to create a base, but not groomed. Our plan is to groom on Friday after this next snowfall today. Hopefully we will have all trails ready for skiing on Saturday. Further updates will be posted on Friday.

  • lynnmcmaster posted an update in the group Group logo of BittersweetBittersweet 1 month, 4 weeks ago

    Apart from trails mentioned in previous post, no other trails have been groomed as snow conditions will not allow for it. Pray for snow!

  • lynnmcmaster posted an update in the group Group logo of BittersweetBittersweet 1 month, 4 weeks ago

    Northstar (classic) skied-in (not machine groomed). Track is poor due to twigs and grass tufts showing through, many deer tracks, thin and icy sections, one grassy section on top of Reggie’s Run. Track downhill on Reggie’s Run is safe to ski. The Christmas Elves have been out and left some Christmas decorations along the trail. Feel free to com…[Read more]

    For the safety of the skiers and the hunters, trails are being kept closed for hunting season until Dec. 4. The reason for this is that some of the trails are on WMA land, where hunting is allowed. We will have them open as soon as we can, dependent on snow, after that date.
