Cross Country Ski Trails

Packed powder skiing, firm skate deck and classic track, sunshine and comfortable temps -- Sunday was a beautiful day to Ski the Hills.

Recently Opened Trails (still recovering from December Ice Storm Damage)

  • In early February, a couple of work crews decided to tackle the tree damage on a part of the East Side Core Loop that hadn't been opened.
  • Over the course of two days, two 4-man crews removed the deeply buried frozen tree debris between intersections 25-24-22-21-20-15 so all of us could enjoy skiing more of the East Side Core Loop.
  • We started grooming those trail segments February 11th.
  • Rain interfered -- and we finally were able to do some 'finish' grooming on those trail segments this past week.
  • A NOTE TO THE WISE: for 100 meters west of #20, you should probably remove your skis and walk 100 strides over a segment of trail that has a very thin base (loggers have been using this area to turn around when hauling logs).

Ladysmith Area Trails report:

(2/24/2023): Sisters Farm trail update. I rolled the west side today and plan to groom and track them tomorrow. Jim rolled the East side yesterday and I made one pass with the groomer and set track today but it is still soft. We may need to go over it again tomorrow. Biking will be soft for a while. Skiing ok and snowshoeing excellent.

Christie Mountain

(2/25/23): Scouting the perfect line for some mid-day powder drops on Beastly. Nothing beats a beautiful day, playing cards and enjoying a delicious quesadilla in the sun.
