There are plans to groom the 3 km skate loop again for the weekend. This may be the last grooming this season so enjoy it while it lasts!
For skate skiers, M, S, anh H loops were groomed (but not track set).
For classic skiers, D, R, X and C loops were track set.
An attempt was made this morning to groom the DRXC trails. We had to give up on this because the snowmobiles can’t deal with the granular icy snow that we have (engine overheating). We need new snow. We managed to set new track on loops D and R, but the tracks are not very good. Still, they are better than before grooming.
The skate trails seem to be fine for skate skiing.
For skate skiers, loops K, little M and M extension were groomed yesterday evening.
For classic skiers, all loops have fresh tracks set for you to enjoy.
All trails were groomed this morning for classic and skate skiing, with the exception of K (under the power lines). K will be groomed for classic and skate skiing this evening, in time for Saturday instruction. Conditions are amazing.
All DRXC trails were groomed today for classic skiing and skate skiing, including K Loop under the hydro lines. We have 100% grooming coverage.
For classic skiers that are concerned about the hills on M and D, a section of King’s Road has been track set to allow you to bypass the hill on M Loop. This shorter length of M (Medium M?) is a test to see if people find this beneficial, so be sure to dust off your skis if you have been holding back because of the hills. NOTE that King’s Road is a multi-use trail, so don’t be discouraged if some people snowshoe on the tracks or a passing snow mobile roughs up the track.
