DRXC Trail Conditions

The DRXC grooms 10km of classic-only trails and another 10km of combined skating+classic trails within the Silver Spoon trails, located on the east end of town, just past the hospital.  This blog focuses on the ski conditions of these groomed trails.  Please contact the club executive with any comments or concerns regarding any of the DRXC trails.

Race day at the DRXC ski club.


The snow that fell a few days ago was enough to re-groom some of the trails.

For classic skiers, track setting was done on Loops D, R, X, C, K (under the power lines), and short M (Kings Road). The old track was left the way it was on the rest of M and on S. There is exposed ground in a few spots on the big hills on M and S because of snow plow scraping, so watch for that.

For skate skiers, rolling was done on M, S, H and K.

We need more snow to make it really nice, but the grooming is nice in many places.


Yesterday’s snowfall was enough to do some grooming this morning. The outcome of grooming marginal snow with an old crust is fair, but it’s better than before we groomed.

For classic skiers, track setting was done on M, S, D, R and X loops.

For skate skiers, rolling was done on M, S, and H loops. K loop, under the power lines, was rolled and track set a few days ago, but it might be redone tonight.

ENJOY, but be very cautious of downhill sections because there is very little soft snow to cushion a fall.

Grooming Update for March 02

Last night all DRXC trails were groomed for skate and classic skiing.

I’m expecting to find debris in the track in places because of the wind yesterday evening, although the 5 cm of snow that’s forecast for us tonight might take care of that. Be cautious of the bigger hills because I expect the track will become very fast in the days ahead, . ENJOY!
