Trail update as of December 20th, 2014
- At this time of year trails are groomed only when there is sufficient snow which is usually a minimum base of 30 cm.
- Grooming at the beginning of a season is at the groomers discretion.
- The best way to see what is usable is the Twitter feed in the box on the left of this page.
- Wilderness trails through forest require a lot more snow before they can be groomed and opened.
It has turned cold again and we had a small amount of snow this week so we were able to groom a couple of trails.
Glebe Park - 12 km groomed & track set, track shallow.
Pinestone & Resort Area - Pinestone golf course trail all groomed & 80% track set. The odd thin spot. Great skiing reported Saturday.
Moosewoods - Opening soon...
Twin Lakes - Opening soon...
YMCA Camp Wanakita - Opening soon...
