Trails and Grooming Update

Friday, April 15, 2022

Good Morning,Conditions at our club as of 6:30am is -7c with mostly clear skies and no fresh snow overnight. A mix of sun and cloud is forecasted for the remainder of the day and temperatures should reach 5c by late afternoon.

As Jaime stated in yesterdays post, the Pisten Bully is still down for the count with minor issues. Graham used our backup Husky groomer to refresh the skate lane on Clearwater last night, minus the loops. Busk/Euphrates was left ungroomed, but should still be in fair shape due to lack of fresh snow and cooler than normal temperatures. Thanks Graham.

This is a sad day in history, as on this day in 1865 Abraham Lincoln passed away, after being shot in the Ford Theater, while watching the Play “Our American Cousin”.


Our PistenBully 100 requires some minor maintenance. We are working to resolve the issue. Though it appears to be a minor electrical problem, we will be grooming with our backup Prinoth Husky in the meantime.

However, the renovator implement that allows us to groom most easily in the spring conditions can not be fit on the Husky. Mark therefore groomed the trails for skate yesterday evening, while the snow was still soft, but they are only in fair condition this morning. He was not able to put in a classic track.

Trails will likely be hard and very fast early this morning until they soften up a bit.

We will keep you posted on our progress with the repairs to the PistenBully. We will continue grooming with the Husky in the meantime, but that machine rarely gave us excellent spring skiing conditions in the past. So please adjust your expectations if you are planning to ski over the next few days. We apologize for any inconvenience.
