    Skate skied Windsor today and it was quite good! All areas are packed and firm, and with the temperature today, fast conditions! Well worth heading down for skate skiing. No classic tracks at all yet. I used my rock skis but could have probably even used my good skis. Just be careful around the gravel paths as I saw a tiny amount of gravel…[Read more]

    Skied at Beaudry today. There is enough snow to ski, but there are no tracks, so you are just making your own tracks on top of the walker tracks. I don’t recommend it, unless you are desperate to ski

  • A good start but not quite enough snow yet for grooming/tracksetting.

  • From John Kim:
    tuesday ~1030 am start, areas skiied -as much as i could, wax – really !?
    many of wp trails are on life support with icy trail conditions ranging from poor (unpassable/dangerous) to fair (at best). considering how good they were sunday, they have substantially deteriorated since. graveyard and blue sister trails have coverage as…[Read more]

  • Windsor Park Nordic Centre, Monday mid-day, +2° to +5°, partly sunny.
    ~10 people were skate skiing, including me. A family was classic skiing on almost non-existent tracks. (I thought Spring Break was last week.).
    The snow was mainly wet sugar, with many short sections of slush on ice, and a few sections of sticky snow. With well-prepared s…[Read more]

  • From Windsor Park Nordic Centre on Sunday morning:
    Last day of operations for this season. Staying cool today so conditions should hold up . Thanks for a great season! 142 days is a record. Building is closing, but gates and access to trails will remain open.

  • Fresh , icy snow overnight was groomed this morning. Results were surprisingly good. Skate trails are in Excellent condition, Classic is 6/10. Brent’s Loop, Graveyard, Blue Oval, and all of Green (Sheepdip,Backslide, Bonivital and Homestretch) are also in great shape. [Report as of 11:30AM Wednesday, March 30]

    Windsor Park Nordic Centre, Monday afternoon 1:00 to 3:30, -2° to 0°. Skiers on the trails: 4 classic & 14 skate (including me).

    Grooming was in progress when I started. The skate track was extremely firm and almost solid ice-snow in the ungroomed places. The Ginzugroomer was able to create a surface ranging from “scratched” to a cm of sugar s…[Read more]

  • I’d call tonight the 7-11 scat ski, as it was like skiing in a Slurpee with animal poop all over. The trail was incredibly soft, and the black diamond areas were underwater. I’m assuming they’ll be putting up signs tomorrow about that. Somewhat firm areas were relatively fast, and the Toko green binder trick worked quite well. Hopefully, with the…[Read more]

  • Trails are holding up remarkable well. Packed snow depth is 9 inches today. Occasional water issues in some areas: Sheep Dip, Jimmy’s Dip, & both creek crossings. Lots of skiing left. Trails are continuing to be groomed daily in early morning.

  • Skate lanes were all groomed this morning. We are watching the weather closely ad hoping for as little melting as possible.

    Elm and Wild Grape were groomed on March 14th.

  • All trails groomed for classic and skate today. Trails are firm and in awesome shape. All grids have been set, Games Area completely combed with fresh corduroy and the ski play area was re-freshed. Have a great ski. Firepit will be warm toasty this evening.

    I don’t know want happened tonight, but I felt like I was skiing on styrofoam, couldn’t get any glide. The trails looked nicely groomed with solid tracks. Managed to ski walk/run six kilometers still.

    Wild Grape and Elm trails groomed Wed, Feb 23, per interactive provincial report. It’s a shame that river crossings are closed this early, an the typically excellent conditions on Basswood may be done for this season.

  • Trails are firm and mostly in great shape. Exposed areas are slightly blown-in. Brisk winds in 1 or 2 areas but sheltered portions and river loops are very comfortable. Not nearly as cold as the weather reports would suggest.

  • Trails were groomed Sunday, February 20. Touch -up for fresh trails today, Feb 21 will also happen. Good condition , wind-blown areas may have filled-in classic tracks.

  • Trails were last groomed on Monday, Feb 14. rooming will commence promptly after Tuesday’s snow event.

  • Excellent classic ski this morning. The glide is surprisingly good – far better than the temperature would predict. Get out before it snows!

    Saturday afternoon at Windsor – all tracks (classic and skate) freshly, and very nicely, groomed – no ice or hard pack.
    Some slippery bits in the parking lot under the snow – but not on the trails.
    Great job grooming team, THANKS!
