Trail Conditions

5th February 2016


Lower Goldbar - Fair to good condition. Skate lanes were groomed today. Woodcutters - Previously groomed and trackset. It may be very dirty, but the hills are no longer "luge runs" 50th st - Good condition. Tracks are holding up and skate lanes groomed this am Lake loop - As before; Closer to the lake is good with only one hill still showing major ice, closer to the paved path is very poor so a new trail has been laid even closer to the paved path as a work around. A 1.75km loop has been tracked and includes the lake bed, the inside lake trail, and the center trail.


Esso hill - Fair to poor condition. Lower Switchbacks to Woodcutters: Very Poor condition with icy track and many bare spots. hills are icy. Creek crossing hill is very worn, not recommended. Upper Goldstick: Poor with bare spots, grass and debris. South Loop: Unknown - This Trail is not part of our regular grooming this season due to environmental conditions beyond our control.


Machine Reset overnight. Good condition with packed lanes and new tracks.
