Feb. 23/24, 2022 Trails/Grooming

Thankfully we continue to receive steady light snowfall overnight and this morning.  Yesterday was our last day of daytime grooming work.  As of yesterday’s work (which now has a light fresh snowfall on it): 

Capilano:  skate lanes groomed.  Existing classic tracks holding up well.  

Goldbar:  all skate lanes groomed. Watch for a new detour on the northshore trail (to by-pass the significant ice flow on the northern part of the trail heading east, the south part of the trail has been made into a 2-way with classic tracks set on both sides of the skate lanes for east and west traffic. Existing classic tracks in place.  

Goldstick:  skate lanes groomed with existing classic tracks in place.  Shallower tracks and ice bottomed tracks in places. 

Southloop:  the skatelanes have been groomed.  However, with significant ice on both the uphills and downhills, the southloop is not recommended until we get sufficient fresh snow. 

Overall, expect hard-track conditions with a solid layer of ice under the fresh snow, with areas of shallow classic tracks with ice/glazed bottoms.  Icy patches.  

Happy trails from your Edmonton Nordic Grooming Team
