Mt. Mac Ski Report

By Mike Gladish

Copper to Best Chance, Upper Valley, and Selwyn’s Loop were groomed Saturday night and are very good for skating and classic. World Cup 10K, 5K, 7.5K and Pierre Harvey Trail were groomed Friday night and still excellent for both classic and skating.

Most other trails are good for classic and skating, but very hard packed.

Lower Valley is still excellent for classic. There is some debris and a little frozen overflow. Tracks in the Beaver Swamp are windblown.

In spring conditions not all trails can be kept in excellent condition at all times.

It’s best to ski the recently groomed trails.

Dog, Copper, Selwyn’s, Coyote and Raven will be groomed Monday night.

McIntyre Descent Trail is in good condition but very hard packed. Experienced skiers only should use the McIntyre loop.

Use Rode super blue in the morning.If the temperature rises to zero, use multigrade violet.

Toko green base binder will help to keep grip wax on longer. Ski at least 500 metres to test the grip wax.

Try an evening ski, it’s light until 10 p.m.

Skiers with dogs may use the stadium trailhead at the south end of the Canada Games Centre parking lot. The alternate lot is open but not maintained. Use at your own risk. A membership, spring pass or day pass is required to use Dog Trail.

Wax Room hours are now reduced: open Monday to Friday from 9 to 9 and Saturday and Sunday 9 to 5 p.m. The Ski Base is open weekdays from noon to 8 p.m. and weekends 10 to 5 p.m. Hours may change on short notice.

Day passes available at the self serve area when the Ski Base is not open. Spring passes still available.
