Trails groomed for skate again today. Conditions are good after the snow shovelling party on the weekend. we were able to stop those bare spots from growing!

Graveyard loop has a grass patch on the North side early going on the right side.. if you’re night skiing stay left.. slushy coming off blue oval to little dip to black diamond.. theres a dog bomb also on the 2nd uphill right…[Read more]
Classic and skate skied this morning. Classic not groomed and slow with a light dusting of new snow overnight. About 1/3 of skate touched up by Jim this morning. These spots are excellent and fast, and include main drag, Brent’s loop, and all of green other than the graveyard loop. All of blue not groomed, except for Jimmy’s dip. Lots of deb…[Read more]
Trails are freshly groomed and in great shape for both Classic and skate. The forecasted snow event today is eagerly anticipated. Packing and tracksetting will be the primary focus on Saturday, January 18.
What is the schedule for grooming the trails in Assiniboine Park? Thanks
Jim started grooming at 2:00 AM and has now gone home to nap before starting over again. Lots of fluffy snow, warm temps and happy skiers today means the trails won’t “look” groomed tonight but at least we have SNOW to ski on! Enjoy friends.
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.
Skied a lap of green this morning. Skate has improved greatly since the recent snowfall, though I noticed some gravel in two
places. Classic tracks are mostly thin and shallow. Need more snow.
Jim the Groomer is out working his magic (probably cursing all the skiers behind him but who can blame them). You won’t see perfect corduroy or crisp beautiful tracks until people stop skiing on fresh groomed trail but for now we are just thrilled to see SNOW!
Skating is excellent. Track setting is next.
Holiday hours (this week and next) M-F: 10-10. S/S: 9-6. Closed 1pm Christmas Eve. CLOSED Christmas Day. Closed 9pm New Years Eve.
Conditions are the same. Really hoping Santa brings us some snow soon!
