Warm Weather

Grooming has been curtailed due to the warm weather we are experiencing.  We will start grooming again when temperatures are below 0.  Trails may have a thin layer of ice on them so ski with care.

Conditions Jan 8 , 2016

We have reset all of the tracks and skate lanes on Saturday.  Conditions should be good for the family fun day today.  Dress warm and enjoy, we look forward to seeing you at Bull Mountain.

For those wanting a longer ski Gunanoot is track set with double tracks, sorry the bypass is not groomed at this time.

We will try and open Canyon View on Sunday morning. 

Dog owners please obey signage and keep your pets to the lower designated loops for skiing. Remember if you want to get out with your dog the snow shoe trails are dog friendly.  Please leash your dog when crossing the ski trails.

Thanks and enjoy your ski.

Dec. Newsletter


FAMILY FUN DAY - SUNDAY JAN.8TH, 12-2:30


This event is a great opportunity for the whole family or adult individuals to try cross-country skiing, especially if you have never skied before. The use of the trails is free to the public on this day and the emphasis here is on having fun trying a new sport without having to buy or spend any money. Skis, boots and poles will be available to borrow at no charge (Thanks to Caribou Ski!) and instructors will be available to help you develop that technique that gets you easily down the track. Bring your own skis, boots and poles, if you have them. Instruction is free. 
Equipment will be available from noon-2:30. 

Please sign in at the warming hut if you are not a member!

December 28, 2016 Conditions


Hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas, the trails are in great shape thanks to Malcolm, Guy and Jim.  We had an ATV come on to the trail system and the crew has worked hard to repair the damage. Classic tracks that were groomed out yesterday will be reset this am.

Most of the trails are open with the exception of Canyon View which is being packed and will  be open when we get a significant snowfall.

Kiwanis is being packed however there are a couple of low snow areas that we cannot run the groomer on yet.  We will keep you posted and it is open for skiers but use caution.

All the mowing, brushing and pruning has made it possible to open the trails with very minimal snow and the trails look fantastic.  All the volunteers should give themselves a pat on the back.  I would suggest skiing Arrowhead to see the difference brushing makes.

Have a good Ski..

Dec 22 2016 Grooming TRACKS SET

We finally have just enough snow to start setting tracks.  Thanks to a great effort from Bob and Malcolm for getting most of the hill set.  Due to the low snow levels I would advise caution as there are still many hazards that exist.  Mike will be up today finishing off the track setting.

Canyon View will remain closed until we have more snow due to rutting on the trail surface

-EXPECT HAZARDS ON THESE RUNS Cataline, Gunbarrel, Winchester, Rustler, Kiwanis, Anvil, Canyon View, and Arrow Head.

-We will not be setting tracks until the base improves and we can run the groomers without damaging them.

Thanks and have a good ski.

Conditions November 28, 2016

Well we need a snow dance to get the trails up and running.  Currently we have had about 3" of fluffy snow which has packed down to 1".  This will create a good base and allow the ground to freeze.

The club would like to thank again all the volunteers that helped with brushing, tree removal and mowing of the trails.  Recently we have been working on fixing signage, cleaning up the ski area, packing snow, minor brushing and tree removal.
