Real Grooming Report Forestville:  Grooming is done for the season but skiing is not. Skiers will find bare spots in open areas but many kilometers of good cover remains. Look for the proper time of day when snow is not too hard and not too soft.

Saux Head: Grooming is done for the year at Saux Head

Fit Strip Trails: Grooming is done for the year at Fit strip

Big Bay Trails: Grooming is done for the year at Big Bay.

Snow Bike Trails: Snow bike enthusiast are encouraged to visit the Face Book page dedicated to snow bike trails. Conditions vary from day to day and grooming is not a daily event. Each day bikers will comment on conditions and post pictures.

Way Too Long Grooming Report: We are into the “last ski of the year” contest period. Winners are not necessarily the one that skis last but rather, the last with style. There are many categories so don’t be shy. Costumes and special equipment are both key elements of style. I remember mounting a pair of 220mm Kneissl White Stars for two skiers. We entered the distance jump at the end of the year at Cliffs Ridge. Fortunately (for me anyway) no one was seriously hurt. I bet you could have fun with a backwards mounted pair of skis. Anyway, you get the picture; so, get us the picture. Please come to the Staff and Volunteer Awards thank you party this weekend and see who wins the fabulous prizes. See you then.
