Weekly Whiteway Report

Update on conditions

The groundhog may have been right when it predicted six more weeks of winter. Some fresh snow last weekend improved the skiing conditions on Lake Windermere, Lake Lillian, and the Junior Johnson. The Lake Windermere Whiteway was groomed for classic and skate ski, and the skating trail freshly swept. Except for the few rough spots at the start of Kinsmen Beach and near Windermere, the ~8km one-way skating trail is still in fantastic shape. With some rain and freeze/thaw conditions forecasted for this week, as well as a slight cold snap over the weekend, we do want to remind everyone to please avoid using the Whiteway when it’s wet or when temperatures are high. This helps keep the trail in great condition, and will allow it to re-freeze in awesome shape overnight. We post regular updates on our facebook page @TobyCreekNordic, so head there for the most current conditions reports!

Join us this Saturday, 1-3 p.m. at the Kinsmen Whiteway trail entrance for a fire, hot chocolate, music, and scavenger hunt! Kids and adults are welcome to attempt the challenge. Bring your skates, skis, snowshoes or toe spikes and show us your best detective skills. Draw prizes up for grabs!
