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
