Mount McIntyre

ski report

By Mike Gladish

Additional snow is creating superb ski conditions.

Copper to Best Chance, Upper Valley, Selwyn’s, Dog and the 10K were groomed Sunday morning.

Raven, Whisky Jack, Coyote, Dog and Lower Valley were groomed Sunday night.

The Copper Haul Road was still very good Sunday. The McIntyre Ascent and Descent were skiable with 10- to 15-centimetre snow cover. 

The Sarah Steele outer loop is good for classic and skating. All loops will be packed Monday and the Outer loop will be tracked.

Copper, Selwyn’s, 7.5K and 5K will be groomed Monday morning.

All other trails have three to five centimetres unpacked snow.

Use Rode Blue for grip. In powder snow, extend your wax pocket about five to 10 centimetres. If you’re not sure, ask at The Ski Base.

Trail lights are on Monday to Friday from dusk to 9:30 p.m.

The alternate parking area off Hamilton Boulevard is now cleared and open for skiers. Membership or day pass is required to use the parking lot and Dog Trail.

Dogs must be on a leash from the parking area to Telemark Hill.

Wax Room is open 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. weekdays. Ski Base open 10 a.m. to noon and 3:30 to 9 p.m. weekdays.

Marsh Lake Classic is February 10 — entry forms available at Coast Mountain Sports and the ski club.

Last Subway 5K of the season will be February 14 – A Valentine’s relay.

The Mount McIntyre trails will be open during the Canada Games.
