Jan 19, 2018
We survived the last two days of warmer weather and the snow is still perfect out at Beatton! It is nice and firm for skaters and the tracks are fast.
The tracks got smoothed out from a pass with the renovator up the middle Spruce Trail, but we thought as there is snow in the forecast, we will be grooming probably Monday.
Programs run on Saturdays so the parking lot and road are pretty full. The hut is open and warm so feel free to come and have a break if you come out between 12-2:30.
Not refreshed with new tracks - we had to move some sleds around this week and one is in getting fixed. Hopefully it will get groomed by next weekend.
Jan 17, 2018 - Beatton - Upper skate ski trails re-groomed
Jan 14, 2018 - Beatton - All trails are groomed and tracks set.
Jan 13, 2018 - Beatton - Ski conditions are fantastic! Half the trails were groomed Saturday morning and the the rest will be done Sunday afternoon. Good temperatures in the forecast all week!!
Jan 8, 2018 - Beatton - Willow, Spruce and Upper Spruce trails have been packed for skate skiing and classic tracks are set.
Dec 16, 2017 - Beatton was renovated yesterday and a few days ago. Conditions there are very fast and pretty good for skate skiing. No tracks have been set as the snow is too hard to penetrate with the track setter.
Dec 15, 2017:
Beatton - We need new snow!!! In the meantime, our dedicated groomers have been trying to renovate the snow at Beatton so some of the trails have had a good raking and hopefully more will get done this weekend. It is very very time consuming process with quite heavy attachments so we only do this if we are desperate. And we are!!! At least there are “chances of flurries” in the forecast as opposed to just sun.
Links is not in great shape - we have no way of renovating the tracks to reset them, so we just have to wait until it snows there - unless you like skiing on hard pan glazed ice.
