Had a great crust skate ski at Windsor this morning. Even at noon, there were still lots of firm spots to ski on . Went over to St. Boniface golf course too and there were lots of good spots there as well (but had to take skis off to go over pathways). I think the crust skiing should be good early tomorrow – before 9 or 10, and then we’ll see…[Read more]
From Esther MacKinlay:
I was speaking to Laurie Penton today at Windsor Park. He is looking for a work party to help close down Windsor Park ski for the season. The work party takes place this Thursday, March 21, from 1600-2000 hrs.
Many hands make for light work.
See you there.

Classic tracks generally very good, a few portions on Blue Loop and Graveyard loop that were in the sun all day had iced over by 530PM. Skate track looked great.
Trails were excellent on Tuesday, as planned, but now with 5cms of Fresh Snow overnight: Grooming is in progress….again. Skiers have been out this morning and conditions are quite good, as the base is SOLID
Freshly Groomed Thursday morning (skate and Classic) after the strong winds last night. The fresh snow is much appreciated and Snow fencing program is a success. Teaching grids have also been groomed.

Skied at 9 this morning. Trails were being groomed. Green was finished, and Jim was working on Blue. By the end of my ski, Blue Oval, Black Diamond, and Dog Tooth were finished, with Jim heading for Deer Leg. What was groomed was excellent for classic, and the pristine corduroy for skate looked tempting, but far too cold for skate. Those looking…[Read more]
