    We skied Pinawa Sunday: a beautiful day! We started with an Orange to JGG to English River to Blue circuit. These trails had received a fair bit of new fluffy snow overnight and that morning, but it had all been skied down (except JGG) by the time we arrived. The grooming from March 4th was still holding up nicely, with deep and firm tracks, and…[Read more]

    I’ve read that on Blue, English River, Red, and Golf Course the classic tracks (only the classic tracks) were reset on Fri Feb 4 afternoon.

    Perfect ski day on the English River-JGG Freeway-Orange loop. Trails in great condition with about 2 cm of freah snow. Some open areas were drifted in, butnit was easy to set new track.

    I second Elise’s report. We were out early Sunday am to enjoy the freshly groomed trails on Red and Orange. It was cold but calm. Incredible scenery. I’m envious of skiers who live close by!

    All trails at Pinawa were freshly groomed! We skied Blue to English River to JGG to Orange. The pole plant zone on Blue and English River was pretty soft, but the track was fast for the temps. JGG was stupendous! One bit of exposed rock on a speed bump at the bottom of a big hill on Orange, around about the 8km mark. A great afternoon!

    33 Charleswood Ski Club members classic skied the Red, Blue, and English River trails on Saturday. -13° to -8°. Extremely windy, but thankfully most trail is deep in the forest. Nice soft snow. Good grooming.
    The skate track on Red looked very appealing, so I tried a few strides (on my classic skis) — beautifully flat and firm.

    Fabulous classic ski on the Red trail today! With about an inch of sparkly new snow from yesterday, the skate deck looked soft, but a few classic skiers had skied ahead of us, making it the best ski of the season. Had a great chat with an interesting local fellow, and saw many deer. As usual, it was well worth the drive to Pinawa, and we are…[Read more]

    About 15cm of fresh snow overnight and this morning. Tracksetters have been out on Blue, English River and JGG freeway and were going to get to the Red next as of lunchtime today. The trail conditions section of the website has been kept up to date this season on the evening after its been set, so always the best place to get condition reports:…[Read more]

    Skiied the Red Trail this morning (everything but the DM loop). It was my first time there time and it’s a lovely, well marked trails system. I would avoid the extension loop, it’s packed down but untracked to the Red Cabin, either manually or groomed, so it was a bit of a slog. Rest of trail is tracked in most places, but they likely need more…[Read more]
