Weekly Whiteway Report

Update on Whitewy from Toby Creek Nordic

The Lake Windermere Whiteway is partially open! Conditions are fluctuating. Last week’s snowfall weighted the ice, which caused water to seep up through cracks and some wet spots have emerged around the lake. The wet spots have prevented us from track-setting certain sections of ski trail. Mechanical issues with the ice sweeper have also prevented us from sweeping the skating trail which currently runs from Indian Beach to Kinsmen Beach. A couple of bumpy sections formed due to the wetness, but the rest is still fine skating on black ice beneath the snow! Check our facebook page or the whiteboard at Kinsmen Beach entrance for the most current grooming updates.

Pack the Poop Out!

Please carry all trash and dog poop off the ice and deposit it in a garbage bin. Good samaritans have already removed several rogue poops and abandoned poop bags from the trail. Respect the other lake users and be responsible for your pet!

Other news:
