  Fun novelty ski in the fresh snow at our local golf course. Of course it hadn't been groomed but it was fun to break trail in the 5-6 inches of fresh snow. It was very dense since it's warm. Almost felt like skiing through wet cement. Nice to be out for a late season ski!

  I'm sure that the groomers were out earlier in the day and did a wonderful job but sadly Mother Nature has played a trick on us all. A combination of fluffy snow and high winds have blown snow drifts out on much of the trail. I don't know how to skate ski yet but I wouldn't recommend coming out here since the drifts can sometimes been a foot deep. The classic ski tracks are in a similar condition. I would only come out if you feel like breaking in some trail in some very fluffy snow.

  Columbia is rolled and groomed, and classic tracks set all the way around. Looks like a great day!

  Sunny midday classic ski with the Nordeast trains whistling in the background. Tracks were clean and firm. Shallow is a few spots but never washed-out. Having never skied here before, I thought I was having a very slow ski day after looking at my time for the first loop. The distance is listed as 3.5km, but my GSP showed just under 5km. Nice little gem of a course.

  Smoothed out the skate deck and reset the classic tracks. With the warmer temps coming up it's going to be great skiing over the next few days!
