Skate Trails have been refreshed by Gord, and are good spring ski doable.
Classic tracks can be refreshed and set when the 2″ or 3″ of promised snow arrives.
Follow the weather , eh!

LAST MONDAY NIGHT SKI?

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.

Shannondale has spring ccskiing for Mar 16, 17, & 18. dgl!

Good day ccskiers,
David here,

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!

David!!

Monday Night Ski tonight

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.

New snow at Burwalde

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
