  • From Edward Zwingerman on Monday afternoon:
    Skied Beaver and Squirrel. Conditions good but not great. Needs a little more fresh snow. Hills are hard packed but not icy so very fast but doable. Safe if you can snow plow. Skate skiing looks a bit better but far from ideal. With the terrain and scenery it’s still worth the drive.

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

    Fresh grooming fri. Jan.13

  • The classic tracks are in very good condition with the odd wiggle here and there. Beware of 2 rocks in the tracks. The skate deck is a mixed bag with some good areas and some not so good.

  • 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!

    Fantastic ski on the exciting hills of Sandilands Monday afternoon! We skied the green and south leg of the black trail in a counter-clockwise direction…..so fun! Tracks were very good, although some tree debris, and footprints in the tracks on NE Black. The SW black trail was in better shape, and the views were amazing. Thanks to the Sandilands…[Read more]

    From Edward Zwingerman on Saturday evening:
    Skied Sandilands today. Grey, Green, and Black. Nicely groomed, snow is perfect, hills are not icy. Beginning of Green is closed due to erosion on the hill, but easy to get around. Nice sheltered area to ski.
    “Worth the drive”.

  • A post on the A Cross Country Ski Club Facebook group on Saturday says: “BHP GUR skate is in really good condition, a light layer of fresh snow from yesterday morning and a grooming probably done Thursday.

    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.

    Happy to report that Grand Beach trails are in excellent condition. Classic track is great, skate track is okay, looked like 1 skate skier had been through. Beautiful day in the woods

  • We skied Lime Kiln on Wednesday afternoon. Despite the chill, the sun was warm and trail condition was excellent, with many other skiers enjoying it too. FYI – Spruce has been groomed for skate skiing.

    Jan 3, 2023. Trails are in marginal condition, fair would be generous. Not sure what’s happened to the ability to groom Grand Beach (seem like they started to pack a foundation, and then left it a chunky mess). It’s still a nice trail and forest of course, but the lack of good tracks is a major disappointment.

  • A post on the A Cross Country Ski Club Facebook group dated January 31 says: “I skied Grand Beach this morning. Track was patchy with lots of snow on top. Some parts seemed skier-made. Regardless, it was a great ski.”.

  • I used the group use area for skate skiing. The trail was well-used with good snow coverage. Now I have to work on my technique

  • Olli posted an update in the group Group logo of Grand Beach Provincial ParkGrand Beach Provincial Park 3 weeks, 4 days ago

    Skied Beaver minus the beaver dam loop. Classic is skier tracked, but worn, skate has some old base groomed before last snow falls, but not really skiable. Lots of boot marks/hiker damage. Good amount of snow, just needs grooming.
