Good day ccskiers,
Shannondale has a couple inches of 10 day old snow .
The 2 skate trails and the 3 trails will all be groomed on Friday. .
Only a very few sprigs of grass will show, and we may get them covered.
I did a practice groom on the Blue Classic this evening
Skate trails only needs a tickle with the skimmer to make shallow mellow ripple, 84″ or 96″. wide and level.
Spring skiing delight, eh?
Know yer skills and be safe, while yer having fun!
It was a busy weekend of skiing across southern Manitoba as snow-starved skiers revelled in the new snow and the Spring ski conditions.
Trails at Burwalde Woods have been renovated and it should be an excellent evening of skiing for both classic and skate skiers. Evening light is later now but you will need a headlamp after 8:30 or so. Clubhouse will be warm as usual and new skiers are always welcome.
We are told that our Shannondale Trails are great.

All trails were groomed Tuesday and the sun and weather have not interrupted the excellent trails conditions.
Follow the weather forecast, and,
Gord and I will be making the best trails possible, when needed, eh?
Hi Fresh Air Enthusiasts!
Ski trails and Weather and 5″ of fresh snow and terrain , we have it all!
We are preparing for Cross Country skiing, all 30 kms of easy and challenging trails.
We all strive for excellence here!
There is joy in the striving, eh?
I understand that we are finally getting a bit of snow. Our regular trail groomers are currently away. We will be looking at reopening trails midweek but are waiting for the snow to dry out before grooming. There are a lot of bent over branches that need to pop back up and if the snow is packed when it is wet we will end up with icy trails. Thanks for your patience
If the weather produces snow , we will make trails.
Looks like lotsa snow coming with cool weather!
Hello CCSki folks,
Yes, all trail are groomed as of Thursday 7:00 PM, Feb 22, 2018.
Classic Tracks on all 3 trails are set up firm and full shape, and have a white lining after that last skiff of snow. .
Both Skate trails were Ginzu snow comb packed on Tuesday and also have a white surface.
I suggest avoiding the approach to Tarzan Ridge, because of dust in the snow and also avoid the Wilson Meadow, because the short grass is taller than the snow!
The weather seems favourable for some fresh air skiing,
Ski Trails at Shannondale are for your enjoyment!!
Come and Ski !!!!
Use enough caution to be safe,
The Yellow Classic is the easiest trail, allowing skiers to become familiar with trails and skiing,
Hello ski folks,
This morning, A skiff of fresh snow refreshed the ski trails at Shannondale!
Skate trails were snow comb packed today, should be excellent,, with exceptions of approaching Tarzan Ridge and.Wilson Meadow.
Some Classic tracks were skied in today.
We will groom if & when needed .
The weather forecast suggests to offer little interference with good ski trails conditions for this weekend.
Be cautious enough to be safe!
Greetings CCSki folks,
David and Gord here,
Ski Day is our event celebrating “Healthy Hearts Helping”!
and much more too.
Donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba will be accepted and receipted.
“Thank you” for your considerations.
Gord and I have been very persistently preparing Shannondale ski trails for Classic and Skate skiing.
Last Wednesday was warm and the trails became glazed
leaving us with spring skiing conditions for this weekend.
And since then, we had a bit of fresh snow blow into the Classic tracks.
The Blue and the Yellow Classic trails are set with near full shape track set.
The Green Skate trail has just enough crumble to do skating.
The Orange Skate and Classic trails can only be done in parts linked to the Green Skate Trail.
More Trail colour markers will be put up.
Gord has groom sections of the Orange Classic and Skate trails.
On the Orange trails, avoid Tarzan Ridge and the Wilson Meadow.
And walk down the Orange Stormy Bypass.
Do yer skiing with cautions, these are spring skiing conditions.
David and Gord!!
And the weather looks like: Warmer!
Hi CCSkiers all,
And all trails will be the best we can possibly make them.
And that will be full shape track set on Classic Trails,
And shallow mellow ripple on Skate Trails.
See last weeks report for Wilson Meadow cautions.
Both warm ups will be warm too!
Young Jackrabbits and Bunnies will be here in the AM.
Receipts for Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba will be issued for Donations to that organization.
We are: “Healthy Hearts Helping! ”
Come and enjoy ski trails in Nature as is in the Winter time!
Get outside yer box , where fresh air is limitless!
New ideas are born where the wind blows free!
