Bittersweet

    I skied all of the skate trails yesterday afternoon. There was about 2 cm of fresh snow and very few bare spots. More snow is falling today and I anticipate another go at it tomorrow.

    From Ardythe McMaster on Thursday evening:
    We were excited to have 4.5 cm fresh fluffy snow on Wednesday morning. Unfortunately, it proved just too little to enable a good grooming job, groomer’s skills notwithstanding. Skiers should ski only on trails which have been freshly groomed.

    From Ardythe McMaster on Tuesday morning:
    Snow is not snow any more, it is ice. Trails are scary fast. All of the west side is closed. All major hills on the east side should be avoided, or walked down. Grass and twigs are showing up in some spots. Skiing on the flats is possible with klister, but even the small hills should be approached very…[Read more]

    Thanks to the groomers for doing the Cottonwood and Red Hill. It made a huge difference both climbing and descending (safer). Because the temperature didn’t rise as much as expected today, tomorrow morning should be very good. The skiers were spread out over the 25 K of trails, with skiers very careful about the Covid rules. Highly recommend…[Read more]

    From Ardythe McMaster on Friday evening:
    Our groomers have been out all of Friday evening, working to make our trails as good as possible. The trails should set up well overnight, and be ready for weekend skiers.
    Come try them!

    The last two days were great skiing although some of the tracks on the hills have suffered from the odd falls of skiiers. Badger and White Tail are two black hills to really reduce your speed for safety. We did them Monday at -17 when it was slower. We did most of the east side twice, Wed. and Thurs.- Parking lot to Woodward’s Cabin, Farm…[Read more]

    From Ardythe McMaster on Friday evening:
    Bittersweet had 6-7 cm of new snow this week! Both classic and skate trails are now freshly groomed.
    Skiers report that the tracks are good, but advise caution on some hills that may have a few wobbles, as our special Yellowstone Tracking Pan, meant for low snow levels, does not have the stability of our…[Read more]

    We skied Bittersweet yesterday and the trails were in pretty good condition as mentioned by Kevin and Ardythe. Quite a few sticks showing through on some trails but they did not pose much of a problem. We need more snow. The tracks have held up nicely, and on some of the hills (Pine Hill!!!!!) were in excellent condition. The day was so peaceful…[Read more]

    From Ardythe McMaster on Friday afternoon:
    Bittersweet trails are in pretty good condition, considering the season we are having. Occasional light snowfalls have been worked into the tracks by the skiers over the week, but no grooming has been done. Skiers should enjoy good skiing as long as they pay heed to the trail conditions, and be careful on…[Read more]

    Skated the Oak Meadow and Skaters Waltz. A few thin spots but easy to dodge so I did 2 laps. My complements to Scott Smart who is obviously a talented groomer!

    From Ardythe McMaster on Friday morning:
    Bittersweet trails are now re-opened! We have had a few light snow flurries. Sections of trail protected from the winds have well defined, ski-in tracks. Open areas need to be skied in, but fresh snow is everywhere.
    Some grooming is planned for Saturday. Cottonwood Classic trails, and the World Cup section…[Read more]

    From Ardythe McMaster on Thursday evening:
    After a wonderful holiday time, with so many happy families out enjoying the mild temperatures, Bittersweet trails have suffered from the unrelenting mild temperatures. There are many bald spots, especially on the south facing slopes, and there is no snow to re-groom or even refresh. In the interests of…[Read more]

    Skied Bittersweet on Dec 29. A little light on the snow but still very much skiable. I found more twigs and grass exposure to the eastern trails then the western portion. As usual, Bittersweet is the most fun!

    From Ardythe McMaster on Tuesday morning:
    All trails are open and skiable at Bittersweet. Some grass and twigs where there is low snow. More snow is forecast for today!
