Cross Country Ski Club

Copper Trail to Crossroads, Wolf, Selwyn’s Loop and World Cup 10K were groomed overnight, and are excellent for classic. New snow will make it slow for skating.

The Sarah Steele Loop was groomed and tracked Wednesday night, and should be very good for skating or classic.

All other trails are good to excellent but with a couple of centimetres of new snow.

Dog, Logan Burn, Copper and Upper Valley were groomed Thursday evening.

When skiing the 10K, watch for the Raven’s Ridge detour signs. Stay left on the detour to return to the 10K. If skiing onto the Pierre Harvey Trail from the Raven’s Ridge detour, ski in a counterclockwise direction, following the one-way signs. Use caution on the S Bend and KK Hill.

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

Grip wax for today is Rode Green.  Remove old multigrade violet. Extend the grip wax zone about 10 centimetres when skiing in fresh powder snow.

 Please ski with dogs on designated trails only. Dogs are not allowed on Copper Trail, beyond the Ketza Connector.

The Coast Mountain Sports Wax & Wine is Friday, January 25 at 7 p.m. in the Wax Room.
