Mt. Mac Ski Report

A great weekend to use the trail system. The groomers have been busy and most trails are in excellent condition.

Copper to Best Chance, Dog, and Selwyn’s Loop, World Cup 10K, Wolf, Monique Wattereus, Pierre Harvey, Powerline, Lower Valley, and the Haulroad were groomed Thursday morning. They are excellent for classic and skating.

World Cup 5K, Whiskey Jack, Coyote, Raven, and Lynx were groomed recently and are in excellent condition. Watch for overflow at the south end of the Lower Valley trail.

The Mt. Mac Ascent and Descent trails will be groomed on Friday. Watch for snowmobiles on the Descent trail since it is a shared trail. Take extra food and clothing.

Remember to carry a cell phone when skiing alone.

Access to Dog Trail from the Mt. McIntyre Rec Centre is over the bridge and down Ketza Connector. Dogs are not allowed in the ski stadium.

There are several Emergency Supply caches located on the trail system. They are marked on the trail map. Please let us know when using any of the emergency supplies.
