Ski Report – Burwalde Woods

December 8th 2018

All trails are open and in fair to good condition. No new snow this past week but things are holding up well. The biggest problem is maple seeds on the trails thanks mostly to our busy squirrels.

Classic Trails: All are trackset including Outer Limits and Creek Trail. Use caution on the Creek Trail especially at the crossings as the snow is still minimal for this route.

Skate Trails: All are groomed and in good condition including: Inner Circle, Ice Road, Roller Coaster, Outer Limits and the Braun Ski BahnSki Conditions

Monday Night Headlampers

The tradition continues with the first Monday Night Ski of the season. As per usual we meet around 8:00pm at Burwalde Trails for an informal ski (distance, speed and style are your choice). Apres Ski in the Clubhouse is also part of the tradition so bring along any snacks or refreshments that you require. All skiers are welcome to join but this is primarily an adult ski night.
P.S. Don’t forget the headlamps

Hello CCSki folks ,

David and Gord here,
Snow has fallen, and trails groomed for only the first 1/2 mile.
Total prepared trails distance on all 5 trails would be about 10 kms.
Gord Hamm has set up the trails this Friday morning.
Gord reports that: Skate and Classic Trails are very good with only a few tufts of stubble grass showing.
For this week end only, until after Dec 2,  deer hunters have priority of the balance of the trail’ properties. .
We will have access to trails on their property for the rest of the winter.
Trailhead Cabin and the Chalet in the Valley will be a wee bit warm for your visiting.
Wear a safety jacket, for visibility if you please.
All trails will likely be skiable after deer hunting passes.

Early Season Ski Conditions at Burwalde Trails

November 25th 2018

Most of the trails have been packed and are skiable, with caution. No classic tracks have been set yet due to the minimal snow. The Nordic Centre will not be open until December 1st and ski rentals will not be available until we have enough snow to set tracks. Looking forward to more snow.

Ski conditions are still pretty good but at this time of year there are no guarantees that the snow will stick around so this could be the last Monday Night of the season. One thing is for sure, it’s your last chance for a ski this Winter as Spring officially arrives tomorrow.
Skate ski trails were renovated this morning and except for a few thin icy spots to hop over they are in excellent shape. Classic tracks are a bit glazed but still in good shape for the most part. For the adventurous there are some new tracks on the fields and dikes north of the creek trail. The creek trail is still mostly good but expect to have to walk or wade through the creek crossings.
Clubhouse will be warm apres ski to swap your latest ski adventure stories.
