Crowsnest Nordic  Groomer's Report

Update March 16, 2021

  

Well I hesitate to do this but I finally have to admit that grooming is finished for the year.  It's been a challenging grooming and ski season but we managed some outstanding conditions mixed with some not so outstanding conditions.  

 

Warm spring like conditions have made grooming impossible.  So far we have a good base on all upper trails.  Lower trails may have spring hazards.  Skiing can continue for as long as we have snow.  

 

Snowshoe, walking & fat biker trail etiquette:

With grooming winding down, it more important than ever that snowshoes, hikers and fat bikes only use trails designated as "Multi-use Trails".  Please do not use trails designated as "Ski Only Trails. " With reduced grooming, the divots and tracks you leave on groomed ski trails present a significant safety hazard for skiers.  The Club thanks everyone for their cooperation in maintaining the integrity of this wonderful Nordic ski venue.

 

Help support the Crowsnest Nordic Ski club’s efforts to maintain these great Nordic ski trails for everyone.  You can purchase a membership or donation online via our website or you can donate at the Allison trail head.  Thank you for your kind support.
