Nordic is 100% open!

After a foot of snow in the last week, the Nordic Center is now 100% open and trail conditions are the best we've seen all season! All of our usual groomed terrain has been skiing great and was smoothed out for skate-skiing again last night, giving us 15km of skate grooming and 5km of classic tracks. It's going to be a little chilly today, but that's nothing we haven't gotten used to this Winter. It should be an excellent day.

While we have picked up some new snow recently, the base is still pretty thin. Over-grooming can actually do more harm than good to a thin base depth. Due to this we won't groom as often as we would if we had deeper base depths. Please note that terrain is still considered early-season and backcountry trails are not groomed. Conditions may vary from trail-to-trail, so we recommend skis with metal edges if you plan on venturing off Broadway.

Stay tuned for an upcoming Bolton Valley Access video where I learn to Nordic Ski!
