    A post on the A Cross Country Ski Club Facebook group says:
    Skied Assiniboine Park on Sunday. Bumped into the trail setter which was cool and from what I could see I was the first person to use. Guess it pays to ski when it’s -40;)
    I believe these are the first tracks of the year and so it was pretty slow/soft as the tracks aren’t packed from use…[Read more]

  • From Syd Jones, Birds Hill Park’s Park Operations Supervisor, on Friday afternoon:
    Victor’s team worked hard today to prepare the park for the weekend.
    The roads have been plowed and trails are ready for use.
    The fresh snow should improve the trail conditions. We apologize now for any problems the windy conditions cause. We tried to control t…[Read more]

  • Birds Hill Park, Tuesday afternoon, -10°.
    Skate ski on the Group Use Road and the two internal bays: 5+ cm of snow has fallen on the park since Sunday evening. Manitoba Parks’ Interactive Map says the GUR was last groomed on Friday. Parts of the road were somewhat slow in the loose snow: the two internal bays and west of the Chickadee parking…[Read more]

    • Parks says it was groomed but it wasn’t…I was there Sunday, and it was in the same shape it was the previous weekend.. similar was stated about Spruce Trail for skate as well.. seemed they did some classic on Friday and didnt bother with the skate trails..

  • Excellent grooming — classic and skate — at the Windsor Park Nordic Centre on Monday evening, at least on the west side of the river where we held our Jackrabbits session.

    For us, there is…[Read more]

  • From Syd Jones, Birds Hill Park’s Park Operations Supervisor, on Friday afternoon:
    The trails are in not bad shape all considering (lack of snow). The tracks may be icy so be careful, and any hill areas may lack snow coverage in spots.

  • Tuesday afternoon, Birds Hill Park — Chickadee, Esker, LimeKiln, Bluestem, east Aspen (all classic trails except west Aspen), -10°.
    ~1 cm of snow had fallen on the trail system overnight. The new snow was in various states of having been skied-in, so yesterday’s fast trails were slightly slower to much slower today.

  • From Edward Zwingerman on Monday afternoon:
    Skied Beaver and Squirrel. Conditions good but not great. Needs a little more fresh snow. Hills are hard packed but not icy so very fast but doable. Safe if you can snow plow. Skate skiing looks a bit better but far from ideal. With the terrain and scenery it’s still worth the drive.

    40 members of the Charleswood Ski Club enjoyed a day bus trip to Falcon Ridge on Saturday. 97% of the trails had very good snow conditions. I saw one rock all day. A+ skate track. The classic tracks varied as per the Grooming & Snow Report dated January 13 at falconridgeski.com/conditions .

  • From Syd Jones, Birds Hill Park’s Park Operations Supervisor, on Friday afternoon:
    The trails have been groomed in Birds Hill Park for the weekend. Hope you have an enjoyable skiing experience, supposed to be a beautiful weekend.

    From Karen Nilsson, President of the Lac du Bonnet Cross Country Ski Club, on Thursday afternoon:
    Pit Road has now been plowed up to the Blue trailhead. The small parking area at the Blue trailhead has also been cleared. Red trail will not be groomed this season unless we get a large amount of snow, as there are deep ruts from the logging equipment.

  • 20 members of Nature Manitoba’s Grey Hares skied Petersfield – Netley Creek on Wednesday before lunch and Matlock after lunch.

    Most of us found skiing on Netley Creek to be interesting, especially those of us who have paddled on it.
    I was on skating skis because I had read a trail conditions report on Happy Trails’ Facebook page dated…[Read more]

    From Edward Zwingerman on Saturday evening:
    Skied Sandilands today. Grey, Green, and Black. Nicely groomed, snow is perfect, hills are not icy. Beginning of Green is closed due to erosion on the hill, but easy to get around. Nice sheltered area to ski.
    “Worth the drive”.

  • A post on the A Cross Country Ski Club Facebook group on Saturday says: “BHP GUR skate is in really good condition, a light layer of fresh snow from yesterday morning and a grooming probably done Thursday.

  • A post on the A Cross Country Ski Club Facebook group says: “Happy Saturday! Fresh skate and classic grooming at Windsor Park Nordic Centre!”

  • Friday afternoon, Birds Hill Park, -13°, light wind, snow flurries.
    Chickadee, Esker, Lime Kiln, west Aspen.
    ~1 cm of fluffy snow slowed down the tracks a little bit. Conditions were A+, as they have been for the past two weeks. Quite a few people were skiing, including a few families.
