Grooming is scheduled again Saturday morning, March 28.
Last full grooming was March 22.
Smoothed out the surface for fast skate-ski conditions. Existing tracks were avoided, so they remain along the majority of trail sections where they had been set last week – tracks are icy, due to the thaw/freeze cycles, so be careful and bring klister. Whichever your ski technique, be extra cautious on the downhills – even after deep renovating with the Ginzugroomer teeth, these sections still ...
With the exception of trail 5 and the trail to the hydro line, all main skate trails were renovated and are in good condition with a firm base. Trails had significant ruts due to be skied on when the base was very soft; this doubles the grooming time. We can extend the season by staying off the trails if your skis are sinking several centimetres; wait until it gets colder. Be cautious if using trail 5 as it is rutted and there are exposed rocks.
Some trails east of the railway have ...

There are Classic tracks on most of the trails, I preserved the old ones that were in good shape or I created new ones where the old ones were not good ...
Skiing at Wesley Clover Parks and not a member of Kanata Nordic? Your best deal is a late season ski pass for only $15. We'll groom as long as we can and you can ski as much as you like! Simply go to our PayPal page to purchase the pass.
You can also pay a $5 day use fee -- just drop it in the new ultra-secure cashbox at the trailhead cabin. Children under 13 years old can ski for free.
Questions or comments? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We're experimenting with where to create new trails next season and have groomed some just south of the main parking lot. Note that these are not on the map. Have some feedback for us? Contact email@example.com.

The Grooming Team was out Thursday and Friday in preparation for a full suite of programs on Saturday Feb 28.
Conditions should be awesome with moderating temperatures and lots of snow in the last week.

The Indiegogo campaign has ended -- with $3915 raised! -- but the video for it gives you an idea of the great new facility we're building.
As most members seem to have received their passes for the trails at Wesley Clover Parks, Marlene will no longer be stationed in the Vail on Saturday afternoons to hand them out. However, if you're still wanting one, just email her and we'll arrange it.
Please note that we're trying to groom at The Parks as often as we can (at least 2 times per week) but the club is also still grooming at the Bonnenfant Centre/Sheila McKee Park, since our programs are running there. We're having equipment issues too and when one machine is down our focus has to be on trails for the programs. Check this blog for regular updates. Thanks for understanding!
As of Feb 7: @KanataNordic: For Wesley Clover Parks, break out the gators for the fresh powder. The ...
We have groomed the Trans Canada Trail east until about 1 km away from Moodie and west across the Watts creek bridge and along the driving range up to the rail underpass. Look for the brand new, clean classic trackset.
On the equestrian side, in addition to trails 1 and 3, you will find a groomed warm-up loop, a few trails on the field along the 401 corkstown road and part of trail 2 up to the small and narrow crossing to TCT.
All trails in the campground (411 Corkstown Rd) are generally ...
