By the Whitehorse Cross

Country Skiing Club

Skiing is surprisingly good on many trails! But best for skating and for experienced skiers.

Rock skis are required and skiing is still not recommended for beginners. Copper to Crossroads, Wolf, and Selwyn’s Loop were renovated Wednesday and are good for skating.

Logan Burn was packed on Tuesday and is fair for skating. Copper to Best Chance, Upper and Lower Valley, Coyote and Raven are packed.

The 10K, Pierre Harvey and Powerline were packed Sunday. Powerline is rough due to ATV ruts. Lower Valley is skiable but rough. McIntyre Ascent is packed and skiable.

Olympic and World Cup 5K are packed and skiable but watch for rocks.

Use caution on all down hills.

The World Cup 10K has been rerouted around the Raven’s Ridge subdivision. Until conditions improve it is best to detour at the Moose Hill connector to Pierre Harvey Trail or use the power line detour. There are signs to guide skiers onto the detour.

Wax Suggestions: Rode multi-grade violet. If it’s warmer than zero, or if you are slipping, use Swix special red.

Memberships or day passes are required to use the club trails.

For updated trail conditions and event information call the ski club information line 668-7742 or check the website www.xcskiwhitehorse.ca
