Cross Country Ski Trails

Blue Hills Trails report:

Wednesday's bright sunshine highlighted the new snow and made for great snowshoeing. Nice way to keep the muscles moving while waiting for the ski trails to firm up.Grooming Report / PlansGroomers focused on the East Side trails Tuesday and Wednesday. Quality rather than quantity. The many trails that were rolled Tuesday during the snowstorm received finish grooming Wednesday afternoon. The snow was working well (a reflection of temps, humidity, and cooperative snow crystals). The little bit of classic track I saw yesterday was deep and crisp. If the skate lane is still a bit soft today, it'll soon receive more grooming. Next step is to start grooming the new snow on the West Side trails. Good luck to all our Birkie skiers!

Ladysmith Area Trails report:

With the new snow last night the groomers were out in force today. Jim groomed the East side trails for skiing and reports they are in excellent shape. Dave groomed the West side this afternoon for skiing, fat tire biking and snowshoeing. With tonight's colder temps. the trails should all set up well and be firm and fun for the weekend. Get out and enjoy some winter fun on the trails. Remember please no hiking on groomed trails without snowshoes. Bikers and snowshoers be respectful of the set ski tracks when out on the trails.
