Firsthand: Classic 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Nicely groomed and tracked. A lot of debris in the classic track, especially under the evergreens on the front or lighted loop. The back loop is better, but still has some debris. Grooming has been very good, but we need new snow for the classic track. Skate deck looks very good.

Excellent conditions at Pine Valley. The skate deck is firm and fast. Thankfully there is no ice, the groomers have done a great job reconditioning the trail since the rain and sleet. It was quiet on the trail, so nice to be in the woods without crowds, and able due to fine grooming to relax going up and down the hills.

Skating was very nice and classic track looked good as well. Snow was soft enough to be forgiving over hard pack but still quick with effort less glide.

Great conditions, thanks again to the groomers. Track is nicely set and fast and skating lane is wide and a mix of nice corduroy and chewed up snow, but fast and wonderful nonetheless.

Very fast ski this morning. Shallow track has been set, but disappears in spots. Very fast downhills. Be very careful on Quinn Hill. Not a novice ski day.

Excellent grooming conditions, skied behind the groomer who was making a nice corduroy. All trails seemed to have a nice track set, we skated and conditions were fast and lovely. Thank you to the groomers.

A bit above freezing, but trails are in great shape. Track is nice, though warm. No bare areas at all, just a bit slow in sections because of the warm spell. Highly recommended. Thanks to the groomers for stellar conditions and well-marked trails.

Observation Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: All ]
CEC Nordic will be hosting their invite race for area ski teams on Thursday, Dec 19th. As it is a classic race an extra track will be set for the event and we are asking skiers to classic only on the trail. After the race, Pine Valley will reopen to skate skiing by late afternoon on Thursday. Thanks for your understanding!

Freshly groomed. A firm classic track has been set. The skate deck is a little soft, but the trail is fast with the colder weather.

Still in excellent shape and freshly groomed, they were working on them again while I skied. Unfortunately, no classical tracks were set on the 5.5 K loop at that time.
