February 18, 2017 Conditions:

The trails continue to be icy due to the freeze thaw we have been experiencing this week. Dog trails and upper "Lit Loop" were groomed and track set yesterday (02-17-17).  More grooming to come as temperatures permit.

Kiwanis will be closed from the stadium to the far side of the swamp. The upper section closest to the Dog Trails is still usable and forms a loop with Little Britches.

Are there people out there interested in adult ski lessons, either skate or classic? We are able to offer both on the afternoon of Sunday February 26th. The lesson would be approximately 2 hours, $10, trail fee not included. If you are interested please give Kirsty Gartshore a call at 398-5538, or message us with your name and phone number. New this year: skate skis now available for rent from Cariboo Ski if you want to try out this fast, and fast growing, style of skiing!

February 15, 2017 Conditions

We are experiencing above zero temperatures for most of this week so grooming will be curtailed until we have below zero temperatures.  The racing group skied last night and people using extra violet or VR65 said they had good grip.  I tried universal klister on my second lap and grip was excellent also.  I expect that the upper trails will be in better shape due to lower use and elevation.  The trails are still in great shape and tracks will get faster towards the weekend and expect icy conditions when the night time temperature goes below zero.

Ski with care

New Snow!

Most of the trails were packed last night, and tracks are being set this morning.  Mother nature has spoken!  Be patient.....groomers are working hard to get everything groomed.  Be sure to show your appreciation if you see them out there.  Happy skiing.

February 9, 2017 Conditions

We have had great conditions this week but very cold weather.  We will start grooming Friday am to start packing the new snow for the weekend. 

The weather is warming up for the next couple of weeks with day time highs above 0 so grooming will be intermittent and will be concentrated around times of high usage. 

The Bull Mountain Racers are holding a snow camp on Sunday and Monday, so if you see the group out say hi.  The group just competed at a Teck Cup race in Prince George and did very well.  They are heading to the Teck BC Championships in Kamloops in two weeks and the BC Midgets in three weeks time.  We should be proud of what this group has accomplished over the last few years.

Have a great ski.  We will post the trail conditions Saturday am.

Sunday, January 29th Conditions

From Malcom -
Bob and I groomed all the centers except for Kiwanis. I assumed there wasn’t enough snow there. Everything looks pretty good except for the stretch of Cataline between the two ends of Canyon View which is very icy.

Great condition for the weekend after an icy week.  Big thanks as Deb said to the crew.

Remember if you need to herring bone please step out of the track into the skate lane

Thanks and have a good ski!

Grooming January 20, 2017

We will be attempting to groom tonight.  Please remember that we have had very little snow and our groomers have been keeping the trails open with a 3-4" base pre thaw.  We will be checking tonight to see how much of the base is left and we will be making a determination if we can reset tracks or just manage a skating surface at this point in time.

Please be patient with the groomers as we are trying to preserve the base for the season.  So pray for snow and cooler weather.
