Unfortunately the Dec. 12th Lakes of the North Freestyle race has been cancelled. Not knowing if the health order would be extended after Dec 8th and the need to purchase materials prior to that date are the main decision drivers.

LATEST TRAIL CONDITIONS

FRI, DEC 4

Forbush Corner: We will be opening at 900am Tomorrow and Sunday. Shop closes at 5pm. Man made snow loop will get a fresh groom early in the morning. Temperatures will be colder tomorrow than today making for pretty decent conditions. Classic tracks are deep, some small amounts of dirt and snow fleas are showing up but easily traversed. Skate deck is well covered with small dirt spots here and there and can easily be avoided. Masks are required in the shop and time in there is limited, sadly. Keep staying safe and hope to see you over the weekend!

Forbush Corner: We are skiing! 1.5 k manmade loop. One direction only. Expect soft skate lane, firm classic tracks.

THU, DEC 3

Forbush Corner: We will have our 1.5 km man made snow loop open tomorrow at 10 am. I haven't seen the entire trail, but I expect the trail to be good enough for B skis at least. We will try to set a classic track as well. I can report more tomorrow when we actually groom it.

WED, DEC 2

Forbush Corner: Larry is working really hard to get all the snow piles pushed around and ready for skiing. We should definitely be able to open the man made loop on Saturday. If possible, we will try for Friday, but won't know if that is possible until later on Thursday. It takes a lot of work to move all that snow. I will update late on Thursday if we can open on Friday or not. Can’t wait to get skiing again!

Kensington Metropark: Tony Percha, Cathy Susan and I had a great ski this morning on a Kensington Metropark golf course fairway. The snow had thawed then frozen overnight, making a nice surface for skating. It was a beautiful morning to ski - Cathy and my first ski of the season (Tony skied here yesterday afternoon). Too bad it's going to warm up.

TUE, DEC 1

Kensington Metropark: There's skiable snow on the Kensington golf course!
