Dec. 1, 2022 Trails/Grooming

The new snow of the last 5 days has been a real bonus. The team has packed all the trails in Capilano, Goldbar, and Goldstick.

Expect a softer top-layer with a hard/icy base underneath overall – in some areas the new snow has bonded well to the old base, and in some areas there is an icy area underneath the fresh snow that can be felt with your skis and slips.

Caution advised: likely some thin spots in wind and sun exposed areas (grass coming through in select areas and some areas with gravel underneath have some gravel present) including: Esso hill, south loop east side and the steep climb at 101 ave, and the entrance climb into woodcutters, and the steep downhill/uphill at the creek crossing.

Please note,  we will be assessing snow pack depth before setting classical tracks.  So at the present time, no classic tracks.  Classical skiing is skier tracked only on the packed base.

Happy trails from your Edmonton Nordic Grooming Team
