By Mike Gladish

No grooming was done Sunday so all trails now have at least a centimetre of fresh snow. Conditions are very good for classic but very slow for skating. Dog Trail was regroomed Sunday morning. The Sarah Steele Loop was groomed Saturday and is very good for classic.

Most other trails were groomed in the last few days.

Copper from Best Chance to the Haul Road and the Copper Haul Road and the Ascent Trail are reported to be very good.

Grooming will be done overnight Monday night.

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

Use Rode Special Green for grip today. Clean wax pocket with wax remover and apply three to four smooth layers of special green. Extend the wax pocket about 10 centimetres in powder snow. In cold, new snow glide will be very slow. Use a cold weather glider, but don’t expect good glide, in any case.

Skiers with dogs: Please note that if you ski from Mt. Mac – go over the bridge and down Ketza Connector (100 metres past the bridge off Copper). Please use the designated tie-up area 50 metres south of the wax room entrance.

 Sportees Sprints on January 13. Information and registration forms available in the Wax Room.  The next Subway Race is January 20 at 11 a.m.

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

Canada Winter Games Update and Information:

The Mt. Mac trails will be open during the Canada Games.  There will be restricted access on race days and Wax Room will be closed until 5 p.m. on race days but there will be alternate parking and access every day. Parking at Mt. Mac and Canada Games Centre will be restricted or not available during the games.
