From Bert Graef:
Skied in Assinboine Park on Monday. Trail, or trails, or what remains during this massive, unending and dreary construction phase in this park, are OK. Some skating can be done where the trails widen. It’s hard to find a decent parking spot, as the trails go nowhere near the main parking spots and cannot be seen from the parking area. The trail is groomed somewhat haphazardly with one or two diagonal trails along a middle skate trail that sometimes narrows and then disappears and reappears. Watch for the many low bushes as they are untrimmed and you can get an eye injury if you are not careful. This park used to be fine for xc, but it seems the never ending and very ugly construction activity in the last few years has sort of destroyed a fine city ski experience.
