The groomers have been out to start packing the trail. There is still very little snow, and rocks are still exposed in spots. The gates are now open but we recommend that skiers wait a few days until another layer of snow can be packed down.
Exercise great caution if you do go out.
Keen skiier and one of the founding members of the Glenelg Nordic Ski Club, Mark Cressman, passed away on November 26, 2017 in his 92nd year. He is fondly remembered by long-time members of the club, and is commemorated in the Klondyke Forest by the trail named after him. He will be missed.
Thanks to all those who helped to tidy up the trails on a snowy day in mid-November. Now we hope for lots of snow to start ski season. Keep a watch here for updates.
For the ladies in the club, a group of us get together every Tuesday and Friday that the weather is favourable to ski the many lovely trails in the County forest and on neighbouring trails. We usually spend about 1 1/2 hours on any given day, and cover different parts of the trails during the season.
Contact Nikki at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in being on the contact list.
