Trail update as of Saturday, January 24th, 2015
- The best way to see what the latest trail conditions are is the Twitter feed in the box on the left of this page. Groomers will Tweet after grooming.
- The Wilderness trails through forests still require a lot more snow. All are open but some rough spots. Ski with caution.
The volunteers have been working hard to bring the trails up to top condition with a limited amount of snow. All trails are in great shape now and were last groomed either this morning or Friday morning and were in excellent shape.
However the current rain will change conditions.
Glebe Park - Freshly groomed Saturday am, 2 to 3 cm of new snow over a firm granular base. Good track on all trails.
Pinestone & Resort Area - Groomed and track set Friday - excellent conditions - Willow Beach/Ironwood trails groomed and tracked where possible Friday. Leveled a lot of the trail. A few dirty spots from frost heaves. Very thin under hemlocks. Not bad for the first groom of the year. Need some more snow. Back woods conditions. Ski with caution.
Moosewoods - Freshly groomed Saturday morning for both skate and classic. Classic tracks on all loops today: excellent skate conditions, good classic conditions.
Twin Lakes - Refreshed Fri morning - great conditions for both skate & classic.
YMCA Camp Wanakita - Most trails freshly groomed and track set this morning - The Buckhorn trail is open, tracks are set regularly - at present the Swap run, Cathy's Swamp Run and Perkins are closed until further notice.
