Heard a report from Friday March 20th the tracks were icy and pretty much non-existent. Elsewhere would be better consider the fresh grooming at Windsor, Bird’s Hill and other places. Too bad we didn’t get the snow that had been forecasted.
From Gord Buhr:
Tracks were in generally good condition. Blown out at the typical spots, corners and berms. Mix of ice and snow.
Some grassy spots on the Basswood.
On the drop from Basswood to the river there was some surface water. I don’t think this is the ice breaking up, just some melting on top. I felt totally safe…[Read more]
I classic skied Beaudry today. Maple was in really good shape. Basswood was very good also. Elm was pretty decent – just a few ‘sketchy’ places where the wind has made drifts. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable ski. The tracks are icy, so it was pretty fast
From Darryl Hrechkosy:
Skied all the trails here on February 15. Moderate winds and temperatures around -14 C. Many cars in parking lot. Maple Trail hardly used, tracks decent condition but much debris from heavy winds in tracks. Wild Grape and Elm Trails well used and tracks had the least amount of debris likely owing to it’s popular use.…[Read more]
Trails were surprisingly good at Beaudry today! Not too chewed up by walkers at all. That will change soon, though… The sociopaths we ran into at the river crossing to Maple were quite determined to destroy them for skiers.
What is the schedule for grooming the trails in Assiniboine Park? Thanks

Assiniboine Park is being packed with some classic tracks. Still a bit thin in some spots but you won’t need rock skis! Once the skate lane firms up overnight, it will be glorious. Hirose Hills are good for an interval work out.
