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 quite a few other classic skiers enjoying the conditions.
