    Was able to put down 10k of shallow-ish classic tracks this morning. Tried touching up the skate deck but our drag didn’t do much to the crust. It’ll be skate able (I did it yesterday evening), but not great. Spring skiing – you take what you can get. Check our social media @xcskibirch for pics.

    Fresh groom for the South Loop and the North 2.5. Just about as much shovelling drifts as grooming today 😅 Phew!

    All of the Ski Birch trails are groomed – classic and skate. Should be good skiing over the next few days!

    Still working out some snowmobile issues @xcskibirch. We’ve been able to groom all of the trails for skate-skiing, but no classic tracks at this point.

    Our snowmobile started having issues only half way through our first pass of the trails today. So… unfortunately no fresh grooming until either: 1) Ol’ Goldie gets fixed up (shes’ at the mechanics now), or 2) The new sled we’ve ordered arrives – whichever comes first. We’ll keep you posted.

    South loop is groomed and tracked. The North is packed for skate skiing, but may not be tracked for classic until Friday.

    Just finished packing last night’s heavy snowfall, and more ❄️ to come tonight. We’ll have to pack that, then groom, so keep an eye out here, or on FB, Instagram, or Twitter @xcskibirch.

    All skate trails are freshly groomed and in good condition. Classic tracks are snowed in but still visible, and will be set again on the 26th.

    Ski Birch is open as of Monday morning, November 29. We’ve groomed the South Trails for both Classic and Skate and they are in good shape. We’ll need some more snow to get the North trails properly groomed. They are packed and skate-able for confident skiers. We’ve also groomed a fat-bike trail starting from the Southwest corner of the Chale…[Read more]
