Looking like we will have some sun today! It is going to be a chilly day again but having the sun out made all the difference yesterday. But make sure to pack lots of layers. Just reminder that the building is for WASHROOM USE ONLY. We can’t have any changing or warm ups in the building. I know this is a challenge but we need to continue to follow Public Health Guidelines even in these cold temperatures. Ski Patrol will be around to help with any needs that might come up with the cold weather. All trails are open! Trail conditions are excellent for both classic and skate. A good rule of thumb for our classic skiers is to not herringbone up the classic track. If you are unable to stride up the track. Step out of the track and move up the skate lane ☺️ Please respect our closing time. Open daily from 8:30 to 4:30. Open until 8 on Wednesday and Fridays for Night Skiing. 

Fat biking is open today. Trails are firm and good riding shape. Remember to have at least 3.8 inch tires and 8PSI or less.

We have been saying it for a while now but we will be cracking down even more…A BUFF IS NOT A MASK. Please keep a clean and dry mask to wear within 50 metres of the facility.

After a meeting with public health we have needed to put more structure into place for our Trackside ordering and Ski Service. We are no longer able to do any in person ordering. This means for any items like wax, clothing or accessories you need to call us in advance to order and set up a time you will be coming to pick up or drop off. For ANY ski service; glide wax, applying grip, fixing equipment, cutting poles and so on will also need to arrange a drop off time in advance. We are able to offer same day service if you are waiting in your vehicle or out for a ski.

The Cafe will be put on hold until lockdown is over.

Contact Tracing and Active Screening must be done the for everyone coming onto the property the day they will be visiting. You cannot do this the night before. You can complete a form online. We request that you complete this before you show up. Note that cell service may not be good enough to do this onsite. Once the screening and tracing is complete you will receive an email that you will need to show at our health check station before you can head out to ski. Take a screen shot of your contact tracing so it is easy to find once you arrive! If the email you receive has comes back red, it mean you have answered YES to one of the screen questions. In that case you are NOT able to ski at our location that day. If the email you receive comes back green, we will see you on the trails shortly! We have a paper copy that can be done in person as a back up.

I would like to thank Mother Nature for her latest instalment of snow! Conditions will be excellent today even if they are a little soft. It is going to be a chilly day so make sure to pack lots of layers. This is our first really cold day and I just need to remind everyone that the building is for WASHROOM USE ONLY. We can’t have any changing or warm ups in the building. I know this is a challenge but we need to continue to follow Public Health Guidelines even in these cold temperatures. Ski Patrol will be around to help with any needs that might come up with the cold weather. EVERYTHING is now open. Thats right the Woolner is now open! There have been some consistently cold temperatures for Chanse to get it going. I know some were curious about why it took so long to open up. The short answer is…its a swamp. We have been enjoying these pretty nice -2 temperatures for about a month with nothing cold enough to free it over. But this week did the trick! Please respect our closing time. Open daily from 8:30 to 4:30. Open until 8 on Wednesday and Fridays for Night Skiing. 

Fat biking is open today. The groomers are working through the new snow this morning. It is light so they think it is manageable. Report may change by 9AM. Remember to have at least 3.8 inch tires and 8PSI or less.

We have some BIG news! Chanse will be cruising in a new machine starting today. Last night a Prinoth Husky was delivered 😍. First we have never had something so fancy! So this is an exciting step forward for us. Chanse said it took him a bit to get out of the shop with all the buttons! We are hoping one of those buttons will make breakfast. Second this is a nordic specific machine. We have been lucky with some great conditions this year. But this will help us out on those trickier days. We can’t wait for you to see what this little machine can do!

The conditions out there are excellent! The fresh snow has really helped and settled really nicely with the cold temperatures for some packed trails for skate skiing. There are flurries forecasted on and off today so you may find the trails a little snowcovered and drifted in spots.  All trails are open except for the Woolner Loop. Please respect our closing time. Open daily from 8:30 to 4:30. Open until 8 on Wednesday and Fridays for Night Skiing. 

Fat biking is open today. Thanks to the groomers getting out and on top of the snow conditions will be good. You may find some drifting in the open areas.  Remember to have at least 3.8 inch tires and 8PSI or less.

It was trying really hard to snow last night but it only managed to drop a little bit of new snow. Let’s hope it tries a little harder this week. Conditions are excellent but it would be great to get some new snow! All trails are open except for the Woolner Loop. Chanse has taken the big machine out for a spin to put in a new track and freshen up all the trails. For classic skins (or crowns) will be the name of the game today. It is a hardwax day but the snow is noticeably different throughout the trails network. It might be challenging to find a wax that works everywhere. Overall its going to be great day on the trails!

Fat biking is open today. Conditions are excellent riding shape. Everything was regrouped this morning. Remember to have at least 3.8 inch tires and 8PSI or less.

Chanse has gone around to freshen up the skate lane on the snowmobile once again this morning. The track is still in good shape. We think you should be able to get away with hardwax this morning but as it warms up it might transition to klister. Conditions are great out there, especially for skate!
