    Nothing has been groomed or maintained. Rather disappointing . GUR is rough with parallel tracks making things awkward a few boot tracks and a few skate tracks. New snow is cold and slow. Should get better as weekend goes by and the usual weekend crowds pack it down.
    The classic tracks are totally worn out, especially around the parking lots. Expect a lot of stress on your joints, knees, elbows, ankles. Its really not that much fun, trying to go forward and always slipping and sliding sideways. Wish the park would get on it a bit. There should be enough snow to groom now.

    • I agree that there is plenty of snow to groom for any club with utility snowmobile grooming equipment, a 10,000 lb piece of grooming equipment is not always the best. CCSAM needs to work with parks to provide better grooming. BPH has only groomed once this year.

    • While the “not enough snow to groom” is somewhat believable for classic, it is untrue for the skate. Windsor, who have less snow to work with, somehow manage to keep refreshing the skate deck. Surely BHP with its expensive pistenbully could do the same. Frustrating for sure. It’s late Jan. We may not have much more than a month to ski.
