• 830 am start time: bluestem-esker-aspen-lime kiln – early start to a long ski before it got warm and soft. folks it doesn’t get better than this ! all trails good. tracks starting to shallow out a bit (south side) but still lots of sidewall to justify getting out. lime kin especially stunning this morning. started fast and crisp and even later aro…[Read more]

  • Wildwood 2.6 km golf course loop was freshly groomed this afternoon and is in good shape.

  • From Kurt Penner:
    Skied Esker Friday 4pm. Fully groomed, no bare patches on the trail. A bit icy in places, especially closer to the start/end of trail, but still pretty good.

    All South Trails were groomed Friday night and are in pretty great condition. North Trails aren’t freshly groomed due to more open/melted sections – so ski them at your own risk.

  • Friday 7-930PM. Tracks are holding up very well, but icy in most places. Definitely klister time.
    Did the double pole thing on skating skis, with occasional marathon skate on uphill sections. Worked out well. Skate track is hard . A bit slow by usual spring standards , but still very good . Probably will last til May at this rate of melt . Thnx…[Read more]

    We have very good spring skiing conditions at Bittersweet! The classic trails are well-formed but icy in the morning and soft in the afternoon – best skied mid-morning with klister or skin skis. Approach all the big hills with caution. Badger Hill, Cranberry Run and Blue Jay Hill are closed with signage due to bare patches. We plan to groom the…[Read more]

  • Friday afternoon (-3C) the Spruce trail was softening in the sun-drenched areas, and there’s a bare patch near the NW loop. Still good snow coverage and should be skiable for a while yet…enjoy!

    • I really enjoyed Esker this afternoon – it was glorious in the sunshine, and excellent grooming.

  • From Al Stewart on Thursday evening:
    A beauty of a day at Birds Hill Park. Lime Kiln and Esker had chiseled tracks this afternoon. Top notch grooming! Kudos to the BHP staff.

    • Agreed. Best conditions all year. Red wax worked well for grip today . Looking for purple klister that no one uses anymore and wants to get rid of. I need purple klister for the days ahead.
      ….skate on GUR was very good too. Can use skate skis and double pole on classic tracks .

    Badger Hill and Cranberry Run have now been closed due to bare patches on the trails. Signage will indicate these closures. Classic trails remain well formed in most places, but are fast and icy in many areas – best skied with Klister or skins. Use caution if skiing hills. As snow is expected on Sunday, we will not be grooming classic trails…[Read more]

    one bare spot at the very start near the parking lot, icy is some spots, still skiable

  • Lime kiln, esker, and aspen were groomed this afternoon. Conditions are excellent.

  • Trails will be groomed all week, with today, Wednesday, the only exception. Conditions Tuesday afternoon were excellent. Don’t expect much change overnight.

  • Tuesday 5:30 PM Skied Blue Stem from GUR parking to stable, quite fast until got to groomed Aspen, nice conditions, but a bit slower around Aspen part of Chickadee and back to parking. Beautiful sunny day- I’d like to point out though, with all the information and warning signage, there’s an awful lot of foot traffic on the trails. I don’t get it.…[Read more]

    Skate trails were groomed this morning and are in very good condition.
    Classic trails are still well-formed from the last grooming, and conditions range from crystalline snow to icy depending on exposure to the sun. Flat trails like Caleb’s and Farm can be classic skied with hard wax and double-poling the icy sections, but klister or skin skis…[Read more]

    From Al Stewart on Monday evening:
    I skated some of the Biathlon trails, parts of High Lake and upper routes Sunday . Impeccably groomed as usual although the melt freeze temps made for a bit of frozen crust . A few rocks showing on the first portage descent on High Lake. I‘d advise walking down as it’s a steep fast chute. Really it still loo…[Read more]

  • Monday afternoon Aspen was freshly groomed, but Bluestem and Esker were not. Tracks are still good although getting wide in a few spots. Lots of ski days left – get out and enjoy great spring conditions!
