Well that's all folks. Went out tonight to see if it would freeze to groom. The top is freezing but the under layer is all slush for about a foot. Temps are supposed to rise up to the mid teens in a couple days. We're going to park the ginzu and bring back the sled this week. Thanks to Isaac, Howard, Pizza Pete, Ethan, Rick, Kamren and Fred for all the hard work.
April 11, Monday.
The last day of trail grooming was Sunday, April 10th. Some trails (Stadiums, Race Maze, Hi Five) may be useable by the diehard ski skaters for awhile yet. Beware of long dirty icy stretches. The conditions should be less nasty if u wait until the heat of the day softens the snowpack. Some days that won't happen. And the shady bits will thaw later than sooner. Take care.
All lit tracks, Gerry's, Canis Lupus, North 2.5, 3.5, and Ronskis were done with Ginzu both skate and classic. The 1+" of snow that stuck with overnight freeze provided just enough to refresh. New classics are fair. Enjoy the day!
Saturday April 16th. -8C. 2-5cm new snow. Sunny. Excellent groom. This will be our last groom. Skate only from Summit. Single classic track from Kallis. (Walk up 120m). Thanks for your support and see you in November.
Well, friends, it’s our last day of grooming today and temperatures as of 6am are around -4C. Forecast is for cloudy skies today, with showers beginning later this morning.
Graham has groomed Clearwater main trail, Cabin Loop, Moose Loop, Busk rail grade and Euphrates.
Many thanks are due to our groomers, Graham, Mark and Jason, for a season of excellent grooming!
Enjoy the last day of groomed trails and thanks also to our members for an excellent season.
0 degrees 10kmh wind is keeping things firm. We are closing for the season. Today we groomed the local greens. And a few extras as shown on the map. Skate will be firm. Classic variable as Stew and I were only able to Ginzu. Have a great summer. Roy
Well it's the day I've dreaded all season. 🥲 it was -4 with 2 cm of fresh snow. Everything groomed really well. Check the map for the trails I did this morning. The academy kids are doing their 100km challenge today, started at 5am. Come up and ski some runs with them. Don't worry they will be slower as the day progresses 😂. It's been our pleasure grooming this season for everyone. Have a great summer from Eddie (Black Prince), Don (Coyote), Mike (New Guy), George & Chris (52 Bravo).
Groomed & T2 upper lit track. Groomed Kiwanis & dog tracks to BX Cataline intersection including Spur. Great top layer of fresh snow for renovating, but hard to get a solid track set even with multiple passes. Director Glen noted upper trails (tracks) were great as is with the fresh snow. Looks like perfect conditions for skiing Saturday morning :)
