Capilano and Gold Bar were groomed last night. Expect spring-like conditions as the day-time temperatures are above freezing. Icy sections starting to form in particularly sunny/exposed areas – caution advised in these areas.
Expect glazed/icy classic tracks – tracks in sun exposed areas have lost the solid side walls.
Recommend timing your ski based on the hourly forecast to make the most of the sweet spot where the trails are not fully frozen but haven’t gotten slushy in the daily cycle.
Skiers continue to report spring conditions and a lot of fun on the trails, however some trails are no longer recommended and no longer groomed.
Gold Bar: Hadhirgaan, Woodcutters, and Treeline groomed for skate with existing classic tracks in fair to good condition – trails in fair to good condition.
We are no longer able to groom the Northshore or the 2-way Lake Loop – not recommended.
Capilano: groomed for skate with existing classic tracks in fair to good shape – trails in good condition.
Goldstick: We are no longer able to groom the Goldstick trails – icy downhills and uphills and several areas where the trail is melted away – not recommended.
Happy Trails from your Edmonton Nordic Grooming Team
