Trails and Grooming Update

Tuesday January 31, 2023

Good Morning Nelson Nordic,
The time is 7:28am and the temperature at our club is -13c with a dusting of snow overnight. By late afternoon, temperatures should rise to -7c with periods of snow through the day.

Both our grooming machines are down so no trails were groomed last night, but as we had very little snow overnight, the trails should still be good. I will try and get the skate lanes refreshed on busk this morning with the ginsu, and the night loop later in the afternoon. We hope to have the Pisten Bully back up and grooming by this evening.

Good Morning Nelson Nordic,

The time is 6:35am and the temperature at our club is -16c with no to very little snow overnight. By late afternoon, temperatures should rise to -7c with a mix of sun and clouds through the day. I will try and give a midday update on the sun situation. Typically 11 to 12:30 is the best time to catch the sun in the meadows area.

As for grooming, Cottonwood, Rail Grade, Stadium and Night Loop are complete. Mitch is just starting up Clearwater and should be back down by 7:30, where he will tackle Busk/Euphrates. Everything should be refreshed by 9am.

Should be a nice fresh day for skiing! Dress a bit warmer than usual today for your ski!

Good Morning Nelson Nordic,

The time is 6:56am and the temperature at our club is -13c with no snow overnight. By midday temperatures should rise to -6c with full sun through most the day.

Grooming is finished on the Apex side, with Cottonwood, Rail Grade, Night loop and Creek and Stadium all complete. Grooming is underway on Clearwater which will be followed shortly with Busk/Euphrates.

Should be a good day to recover some vitamin “D”.

TRAILS & GROOMING UPDATE

Trails are in good shape today after grooming this morning.

Our primary grooming machine was damaged early this morning on the Busk Rail Grade. We completed grooming today with our backup machine. We are in the process of assessing the damage to the primary machine and will let you know how long we expect it to be down.

In the interim we will be conducting grooming operations with the backup machine. Currently, at 12:30 pm, our grooming team is out retrieving the blade of the machine from the Busk Rail Grade. Please use caution if you are skiing near the machines. Thank you for your understanding.

Good Morning Skiers,

The time is 7:21am and the temperature at our club is -1c with a dusting of snow overnight. Temperatures should rise to +2c by late afternoon with snow flurries in the early evening. There is a cold front pushing this warmer weather out of the way, with temperatures for the foreseeable future to be decidedly colder.

Grooming is complete on Cottonwood, Rail Grade, Stadium and Clearwater including all loops. Busk/Euphrates is just getting started and will be followed by the remainder of the Apex trails. Grooming should be done by 9:00am.

Enjoy the Trails!
