    Kildonian Park golf course should be closed, or at least warning signs posted. Where the trail hasn’t been cut through it has been obliterated provide a road for park vehicles. Several of the cut through areas are at the base of hills, skiing across a narrow road with 18 inch sides may not seem like much, but it’s more of a challenge the my ski…[Read more]

    A post on the A Cross Country Ski Club Facebook group dated January 2 says: “Had a great ski today at Kildonan golf course. Trails are in much better shape than I have seen in previous years, and there seem to be more of them. Unfortunately, there are some areas where tree trimming and cutting have left debris on the tracks but overall I was r…[Read more]

    Kildonan Park and Harbourview Park both lots of snow, but no trails and no grooming yet, although City of Wpg site says trails are open

  • Churchill Drive Park is machine tracked. Both classic and skate. Really good conditions yesterday. A bit dicey near and under the St. Vital Bridge with low snow cover.

  • A post on the A Cross Country Ski Club Facebook group says that Assiniboine Park was groomed on Tuesday afternoon. “Start from the east side of the old conservatory parking lot.”

  • A post on the A Cross Country Ski Club Facebook group on Monday says:
    St Vital Park fresh groom today! Gorgeous day.

    Went out Jan.27th to Kildonan Golf Course. Parking lot was freshly cleared but the pushed a lot of that snow into the entrance of the course. You had to walk over all the hard packed clumps of snow. Not a very good idea, was some what dangerous for walking to the trail.
    Trails had not been groomed for some time. There was lots of drifting and…[Read more]

    Did the Transcona Nordic Loop Sunday afternoon. Groomed trail is visible for about 80% of the loops and we balled the other areas for everyone!

    Transcona Nordic Loop at the TGC golf course was groomed on Friday (yesterday) and the ski library is there today from 1 to 4 pm.

    Crescent Drive Park was groomed for classic (double track) around lunch time today.

    I went to Harbour View on Wednesday. The trails were groomed but much of it was iced-over because of the wind. Some grass showing through on parts of the trail. Not the best skiing experience. I will go to Birds Hill Park tomorrow

    I stopped in at harbour view, the groomer was just starting to groom the trail. So I am thinking some of the city park trails have been done today.

    Does anyone know if Kildonan Golf Course has been freshly groomed?

    • Please see my past posts. Go under ”City of Winnipeg Parks”

    • It was freshly groomed 2 days ago but unsure about today yet. Will likely go tomorrow and if so, I will update the group.

    Thanks for the add. Looking forward to welcoming CCSAM to the Transcona Golf Club trails. See you soon.

    Exceptional grooming at Kildonan Park today! Slowish conditions to say the least with the frigid temps out there. Fun ski though.

  • Decided to try out Kildonan Park this morning for a quick ride and found myself doing close to 10km in the cold weather as I couldn’t believe how well groomed the trail was in the golf course! Some of the best classic skiing this year even as of yet considering the somewhat slower conditions because of the cold weather. I was surprised to get…[Read more]

  • I live near Kildonan Park and found that they have just packed and tracked all city parks as stated on the winnipeg.ca website. KP certainly is. I tried my bet at it. After 1 lap around the park, I packed it in. Kudos to the Parks staff for tracking the parks for skiing, there’s no doubt about that, but with the lack of snow in there, I guess…[Read more]
