    First time at Bittersweet today and it was great! Trails are in great shape, really well signed and the promise of a cookie made the last couple uphills easier! Something for everyone, rolling trails and steep fun ones at the far end.

    Groomed today – perfect!
    Protected well enough that big south wind had little effect.
    Thanks grooming team

  • Good news for skate skiers. GUR was freshly combed today.
    Classic trails? Let’s hope that BHP can freshen them up tomorrow.
    Why wait for -25c? Let’s go skiers!

    • On Thursday I heard that the Spruce trail has been freshly combed as well. We skied parts of Bluestem, Chickadee and Esker; and tracks were all in really nice shape with a light dusting of new snow.

  • Another great ski today….just want to thank the Park staff for the beautifully groomed trails!

    Thank you SOOO much to all who showed up at the Candlelight Ski!!! We had around 40 people, which exceeded our expectations. We had a lot of fun, and hope that everyone there did too! We will be making it an annual event for sure. On a grooming note, skate trails are being groomed as we speak.

    Hey all, the Candlelight Ski is a go. The bit of snow we had has slowed the trails down to a normal speed now. Wax for normal temperatures again. Note: Because the candlelight trail will be 2 way, a few spots have had the trail removed (corners, hills) to encourage snow plowing to slow yourself down, to avoid collision with would be oncoming…[Read more]

    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.

    Remember Bittersweet’s Candlelight Ski this Saturday January 7, 7-9 pm. See details under 2023 Events above.

    Classic trails are in good condition. There is a very thin layer of fallen hoarfrost in some trails, but the trails are still very fast and skiers are using grip wax warmer than temperatures would indicate to get good kick. Skate trails…[Read more]
