Copper to the Haul Road, Lower Valley, Haul Road, Descent and Jack Fraser Loop were groomed Tuesday and are excellent for classic or skating. Selwyn’s Loop, World Cup 10K, Pierre Harvey, Sarah Steele Loops and Powerline are excellent for classic and skating.
Dog trail is hard packed but still good for classic and skating. It will be groomed Thursday evening.
The Mt. McIntyre Ascent is in good condition, but recommended for experienced skiers. The Descent trail is shared with the Klondike Snowmobile Association, so always watch for snow machines.
Spring waxing is variable throughout the day. Use a violet or multigrade violet in the mornings and violet to special reds in the afternoon. Klister is not required…yet.
With the long evenings the trail lights have been turned off for the season.
Dogs are welcome on designated trails. Parking is provided at the Dog trail lot off Hamilton Boulevard and at the Mt. Mac parking lot. To access Dog trail from Mt. McIntyre, go over the bridge and down Ketza Connector. Dogs are not allowed in the stadium.
On March 30 between 9 am and 2 pm, dogs will not be allowed on Ketza or Chalet trails due to the Annual Whitehorse School Challenge.
