  • Skiid bluestem and chickadee today. Trail is nice and fast but leaves are starting to be a problem, grabbing your grip wax.

    Crossed the group use road on the chickadee return and saw that it had been groomed but there was a trail and splatter pattern of red liquid.

    Couldn’t tell if it was transmission fluid or hydraulic but it went as far as I…[Read more]

    • Gord, thanks for the update. My guess is that [whatever part] failed during last week’s grooming, they fixed it, and this was its first post-fix use … that ended in failure again.

    Classic and skate trails are both in good condition. With temperatures not forecasted to rise above 0C tomorrow, we are not planning to groom the trails for the weekend. Hope to see you on the trails!

  • Birds Hill Park, Tuesday afternoon, -8° & sunny:
    Classic: Previous reports from d baniuk and Gary Wickens accurately describe conditions.
    Skate: The 5+ cm snowfall from the Louis Riel long weekend has been skied-in on the middle-inside of the road’s width. Adjacent to that, it’s usually semi-skied-in. The outside edge of the road is either…[Read more]

    • I would just like to add that Spruce has not been groomed for weeks. With about 2″ of loose snow, skate skiing is not ideal.

  • So, me and my “woodies” hit the park around noon Feb 28 at the stables parking lot. Did Asp l around its west loop, Chick to tower, Chick loop and Esk back to the stables. Blustm and Chick are only tracked trails. I hope this does not mean that the Bully is broke again. Anyway the tracked trails are in good shape, and the skier packed trails(…[Read more]

    If you left a bag of waxing gear at the Nordic Centre on Sunday, please let me know.

  • 3 groups of people walking on ski trails in WP this aft… 2 families pulling their clhild in a sled while walking on the classic trails… a man and woman came up from seine river and proceeded to walk all along the blue loop then most likely into graveyard loop…

  • I was out at BHP Sat. p.m. Chickadee and Blue Stem have been groomed over the last few days and are in great shape. Thanks BHP!
    The other trails have been skier tracked only since last weekend’s snowfall.

    Sunday afternoon we spent the afternoon skiing the lovely trails at Bittersweet. The new snow was a blessing on the hills. Met many nice folks doing a great job making skiers feel welcome. Thanks to all the families that work hard to make this a great ski destination. Good job on the poker derby/silent auction, and the chili was delicious!

    • Glad you enjoyed yourself Alison! It was a fun day all around. Nice to see so many smiling faces!

  • Trails are in excellent condition. Ski-Play area has been freshened up. Moonrise and Big Dog creek crossings are in good, skiable condition. (no longer closed)
