The last message was posted Feb 17th and said "The classic ski tracks have grass poking through in places but the ski skating section is OK. However, today could well be the last day for skiing until we get more snow." And it happened that way. Now we have a storm coming with promised significant snowfall, so let's hope there'll be enough to groom and ski on - watch this space. Note our hosts HostMonster are upgrading the system this evening for a few minutes when we will be offline around 8pm. We hope this won't inconvenience anyone.
A new information page has been added to this website concerning Coyotes.
We think all our skiers know NOT TO WALK ON THE TRAILS. If you encounter anyone walking on the trails, by which we mean the whole width, not just the grooves for classic skiing, please politely ask them not to. The deep footprints caused by walking can be a hazard as well as making the trails rough. There are signs requesting no walking which you could point out.
Please use the small envelopes provided in the mail box under the Trailhead sign. Larger envelopes plug the drop box. Thanks.
This season the payment system will be the same as before - put $5 ($4 senior, 60+) in a small envelope (provided in the mailbox), sign it, and drop it in the box before skiing. After 8 skis the rest are free! Or you can pay $40 ($32 senior, 60+) for the whole season. Make cheques out to Guelph Nordic Ski Club. Other amounts are available for children and families - see Membership below.
Places to look are: Play It Again Sports, 218 Silvercreek Parkway in Guelph, who sometimes have second hand cross country ski equipment and often new equipment as well. Another source for equipment is Russ Mater who is local and will order and deliver equipment. He generally doesn't have a lot on hand, but does have specials now and again. Paramount, 30 Arrow Road, sells new cross country ski equipment and clothing. Speed River Cycle got out of the business a few years ago.
