Special to the News

The snow is persisting and cool nights are ensuring good spring skiing.

The trails have not been groomed since Saturday, so time of day is important for enjoyable skiing.

Dog Trail, Copper to Best Chance, Upper Valley, Selwyn’s Loop, World Cup 10K and Pierre Harvey Trails were groomed Saturday and still good for classic or skating, but best in late morning and early evening.

Skiing through the Tube is not possible, so skiers should access Dog Trail by Ketza Connector.

Skiing over the bridge is also not advised, but is possible. Walk across Sumanik Drive to access Copper Trail.

Some grooming may be done Monday or Wednesday night and if the snow conditions are good, there will be grooming done on Friday night. Watch the club webpage for updates.

Use Rode or Swix Multigrade Klister for grip. Make sure you clean Klister off immediately after skiing, to avoid creating a mess. For assistance with Klister application and removal ask at the Ski Base.

Wax Room hours for this week — subject to snow conditions: Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Ski Base is open Monday to Thursday noon to 8 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Hours may change at short notice.

Day passes are available at the self-serve area when the Ski Base is not open.

Celebrate Earth Day at Mt. Mac on April 22. Call Yukon Conservation Society for more information.

The Wax Room will close for the season on April 28 at 5 p.m. Lockers should be cleaned out by April 28.

Phone line updated Monday, Wednesday and Friday for rest of April or until skiing ends. The website updated daily.

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