Grooming Report

Sunday, April 7, 2024, 7:30 am, Temp:  +2 °C

Good Morning! Nordic Skiing is better than you think! Don’t be discouraged by the dirt patch in the stadium.

The upper trails will be groomed smooth in the skate lane with the ginzu this morning. It was cool enough early this morning the  skate lane should be fast and firm for a while this morning. The track was reset in cleaner snow yesterday, smooth and straight and is in good shape from yesterday. It may be icy until the temperature rises a bit.

Here is the recommended  route: Main Loop via the higher side, Log Roller, Hydro Hill, Novice Glide, Cedar Ramble,Creel Crawl, back on Main Loop the way you came. The low side of Main Loop is not skiable, but comes up as groomed on the map. See the map below.

Glen’s Glide may be okay, but the bottom end has no nice option, dirt to cross at Mickey’s , Evelyn’s may be okay, Hydro way is okay, but leads you to use Beaver Lake Road, – the first half is nice, the further north half is not. Passable but icy and very dirty. Don’t bother with Lower Mickey’s or Roadway R or BCIT. – but you can do it by taking skis off 4 times.

Dirt, ice patches, and water pooling are showing up in numerous places. especially on the lower trails. Please ski with full attention on downhills and watch for rapidly changing conditions and other skiers.   And other good trails have places where a hole has developed from running water beneath. Always ski in control and remember, on two-way trails descending skiers have the right-of-way.

We are getting close to the end of the grooming so come enjoy what’s left of skiing!  There may be places where you prefer to take your skis off to cross.

*** This may be the last weekend for ginzu grooming.


RNSC  trail policies are in effect until tonight.

Friendly Reminder: Please be kind to the classic track! Our grooming team works hard to set the best classic tracks in the given conditions. Please do not skate ski or walk in the classic track!

There is a wax predictor and temperature chart to help with your decision-making.  For more detailed weather information, check out the RNSC weather station.
