Dec 21

  • Beatton was groomed yesterday and should be track set much of the way.  The trailhead area has a thinner base so there is not as much depth as there is along the trails in the trees.
  • Conditions are excellent and should remain so for this week as there is no new snow in the forecast and very comfortable temperatures.
  • Don't forget to sign in - this year we have removed the name requirement - we just need to track skier visits for insurance purposes so all you need to put down is the date, number of skiers in your party and whether you are a member or not.  Completely anonymous.

Dec 14 - trails packed and track set

Initial packing of the base done in November - cheer on new snow!

 

Links Golf Course

No grooming will be done at Links this season.  The equipment is on loan to the Biathlon facility for the BC Winter Games.
