Grooming For Classic and Skate Skiing

groomingWe have approx 73 km of double-tracked groomed trails with a good range of difficulty, groomed regularly with 2 Pisten Bully snowcats. We also have 2 km of single-track trail that is occasionally groomed.

The PistenBully's are equipped with the latest grooming equipment and some custom upgrades. The use of these guarantees excellent trails in almost any condition. Our grooming season can run as late as April 20th.

We usually groom every day. During the week we groom from either the Main Cabin location or the Summit location.  On the weekend we groom from both. After a significant snowfall we may groom from both as well. Sometimes some or all trails are not re-groomed. This is because under certain conditions they are better left alone. If there is no grooming on a designated day it will be noted on the website.

Grooming is normally completed by 10:00 A.M. If you encounter the groomer, please move to the side of the trails carefully. The operator will wait for you to get settled before proceeding.

Our grooming is tracked by the tracking system. It is dependent on a WiFi stick which occasionally does not get a signal (mostly during snowfalls) from our phone provider. We cannot get cellphone service either when this happens. Do not assume what has or has not been groomed from this system. We are sometimes only able to update later in the day.

The table below is not necessarily updated each day if there is no grooming. It is used to indicate early and late season conditions and trail status. It is also used when the ski tracker system is unavailable. Use the ski tracker map under "conditions" for regular updates at other times.
