Cross Country Ski Trails throughout the County remain in Excellent condition. All trail systems are groomed for classical and skating.
Blue Hills Trail System. Trail Conditions: Very good to excellent skating and striding yesterday (Wednesday, February 4) with a 1/4-inch dusting from Monday’s snow showers providing good edge control for skaters, and good grip for striders. Sunshine and temps in the low teens accompanied the squeaky/noisy Styrofoam hardpack snow that offers solid pole plants and fairly fast conditions. Only the most sun-exposed hills require your utmost attention to get a good edge during descent. All the trails are groomed for skating, striders have about 25-28km of classic track at their disposal.
Ladysmith Area Trails. January 26th Trail Update There has been no appreciable snowfall since Sisters’ Farm was groomed one week ago. The track and the eastside skate lane should still be in good condition. I touched up the skate lane at LHS and reset the classical track on the fields where it had drifted in and was run over by snowmobiles in one spot. Conditions should be very good. The lights at LHS are turned on from dusk until 10 p.m
