From Al Stewart on Monday evening:
I skied this afternoon on Lime Kiln and Esker. The grooming was outstanding, the trails were out of Trax Magazine. The trees were laden with snow, the sky was bright blue, the temperature was cold but the wind was not a factor in the forest. I had excellent grip and decent glide with Rode Special Green.

From Karen Nilsson, President of the Lac du Bonnet Cross Country Ski Club on Sunday evening:
The trails were groomed this evening. So beautiful out there with the fresh snow on the trees! Should be in excellent shape for tomorrow.
11 Charleswood Ski Club members skied all the trails that had been groomed on Saturday. (See http://sandilands.ca/the-trails). 5 cm of new snow was on top of the grooming; it`s now been well skied-in. Many other people were also skiing. It was a very good day at Sandilands.
I’ve heard that Sandilands was groomed on Saturday.
http://sandilands.ca/the-trails/ wasn’t updated as of Saturday evening, but apparently the same trails were groomed as on January 10.
(i.e. The “north half” of Green wasn’t groomed.)
From Danielle Dumesnil on Saturday:
Saturday Jan 18 – 6 inches have fallen in the valley. Once the snowing and blowing is over, we will look at grooming tomorrow Sunday and will keep you posted about road & parking lot conditions. No one venturing in the valley today.

I’ve read a report from Grand Beach on Wednesday afternoon:
“For those long-suffering souls who are interested, the Grand Beach ski trails are finally groomed! The skate track leaves much to be desired, but the classic tracks look good. Currently snowing here, so we’ll see how long they last.”
38 Charleswood Ski Club members did a bus trip to Falcon Ridge on Sunday. Caleigh Christie greeted us upon arrival, invited us into the chalet, and told us the trails were freshly groomed.
Grooming was indeed excellent, but the snow is generally fairly thin, as it is almost everywhere in Manitoba this year. In a number of places, the granite rock…[Read more]
From Ardythe McMaster on Friday evening:
Bittersweet has received a welcome 3-4 INCHES of fresh snow, and today we were out grooming trails. All trails are freshly groomed, and they look terrific! The parking lot has been plowed, and the Nordic Centre will be warm and welcoming.
Why not ski Bittersweet this weekend?

From Joanne Podolchuk, Park District Manager, Birds Hill Provincial Park:
Park staff are grooming and track setting trails as of Thursday morning. There are still some bare spots/grass/leaves on trails, so skiers should continue to exercise caution while on the ski trails.
The tracks on all the trails we skied (Bluestem, north Chickadee, parts of Esker and Aspen) were good to excellent. Yes, leaves had been churned up in a few places and there were a few twigs poking through, but the handful of bare spots were only a few cm long. It was snowing during our entire time there (Thursday from 1:30 to 3:30). There were…[Read more]

From Marlene Boerchers on Thursday:
Skied about 8 miles yesterday at The Winter Park @ Langford Trails, just East of Neepawa. Roasted wieners and heated hot chocolate over the campfire outside of the warm up shack. The weather was perfect for us to sit at the picnic table to eat our lunch, talk, and laugh. Such a great way to start off a new…[Read more]
