Cross-Country Ski Trails 

Blue Hills Trails report:

Adequate base, you can use your good skis. With several dustings of snow this past week, skiing has been very good and hasn't required fresh grooming - "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." All the East Side trails are open and groomed for skating; about 75% of the East Side trails are being groomed for classic skiing. The north half of the West Side is groomed.

East Side: firm, fairly fast skating conditions with good edge control; classic conditions are very good. Anticipate some trail litter as a result of brisk winds January 18/19.

West Side: the north half was groomed January 19th with plans to set classic track.

West Side logging was completed January 18th. Until snow builds up where the West Side logging was performed, you can access the West Side at Letter L. (West Side access currently is limited due to bare ground on certain ski trails - READ THE IMPORTANT UPDATES INFO section).

-Be sure to visit their website or Facebook page for more trail conditions.


Ladysmith Area Trails report:

Sisters farm was all groomed today and is great shape. Skiing, snowshoeing, fat tire biking are all a go. Get out and enjoy. Remember skiing only on East side trails, skiing, snowshoe and bikes on the west side trails. As always please no hiking on groomed trails without snowshoes.
