By the Whitehorse Cross Country Ski Club

Skiing is excellent!!  The trails are sheltered from the wind and the tracks are fast even though it’s still cool.

Copper to Gravel Pits and Lower Valley were groomed Monday evening. Good to excellent for classic, except there is a rough section between the Ascent Trail junction and McIntyre Creek.

Dog, Wolf , Coyote and Selwyn’s Loop were groomed Tuesday and are excellent for classic or skating.

All other trails are still good to excellent. The Sarah Steele Loop is good. The Inner loops have not been packed.

When skiing the 10K, watch for the Raven’s Ridge detour signs. Stay left on the detour to return to the 10K. If skiing onto the Pierre Harvey Trail from the Raven’s Ridge detour, ski in a counterclockwise direction, following the one-way signs. Use caution on the S Bend and KK Hill.

Trail lights are on Monday to Friday from dusk until 9:30 p.m. Grip wax for today is Rex or Rode Special Green. If the temperature rises as is forecast, or if slipping, use Rode Green. Carry wax and a cork with you. Always carry a special blue wax. Stop and rewax as necessary.
