The first part of the trails were rolled today but not track set. The operation was abandoned as there isn't enough snow and the ground is showing through in parts. It is still possible to ski but beware of the non-slippery grassy and earthy bits. We are in for another warm up, but it's still January, plenty of time for more snow after that.
A new information page has been added to this website concerning Coyotes.
ONCE THE SEASON STARTS:
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. This also applies to snowshoeing or any other activity other than skiing.
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. Paramount, 30 Arrow Road, sells new cross country ski equipment and clothing. Speed River Cycle got out of the business a few years ago. If you have equipment to sell - send us the info and we will put it on the website here for a month until you let us know you've sold it. Include either an email or a phone number and your first name.
