    Had a good ski at Falcon Ridge on Sunday. Most trails were last groomed on Feb 25th or 24th. There is plenty of snow and we didn’t see any rocks, even where there are signs warning about them.

    On Saturday, 29 Charleswood Ski Club members visited Falcon Ridge. Excellent snow conditions. Excellent grooming for both classic skiing and skate skiing. An excellent day.
