Jan. 17, 2022 – Trails NOT recommended due to ice and rain

Well, again what a difference 24 hours can make!  Unfortunately, here at Goldbar Park its raining and freezing raining.  We did groom overnight, however, with addition of the rain, we are recommending NO USE of the Nordic Trails until further notice – trails are icy and wet.  

In order to preserve the snow and keep it from getting compressed into ice, we will need to keep the grooming equipment off the trails and thus have suspended planned snowfarming and grooming activities for today/tonight.  We will be monitoring and will get out on the trails as soon as we can.  

In the meantime, we are also recommending that users refrain from using the Nordic Ski trails in order to preserve the snow (this includes skiing and foot traffic) and due to icy conditions.  

Thanks for your patience as we work with mother nature and look forward to great skiing really soon.  Stay tuned to the website for updates.  

Happy Trails from your Edmonton Nordic Grooming Team
