Big day of grooming on Friday with around 50km of trail groomed. All trails we have been grooming this season groomed as well as track set on Wavy Gravy and Island lake for the first time this year. Overall the track set nice and good skiing on Island and Wavy. Caution in between Twin lakes as still a bit rough, didn’t groom there there. Grooming Saturday morning on the skater trails. All other classic trails groomed Friday in great shape for the weekend! Bundle up and enjoy!
