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.
