Everything re-set this morning. Trails are very good and getting better as the snow is setting up.
Everything packed, combed, and tracked. Lower swamp road needs a little more work. Otherwise, the trails are the best they have been in quite a while!! Thanks to Ralph Greco for the helping hand tonight!!
Plenty of snow. See you at lessons this week!
Temperatures are promised to warm up into the mid-20′s, so lessons will be held. Balmy!
The temperature is probably not going to get much above zero tomorrow, so we are canceling ski lessons. Instead, we will have lessons on Sunday afternoon (1/26) from 1:00 til 2:30. Join us if you can. There may be some snow on Saturday, so keep your fingers crossed!
The Wolverine Classic Race scheduled for January 25 has been cancelled due to inadequate snow.
Youth ski lessons will not take place tomorrow due to poor conditions at the game club. There are bare spots in a lot of places and solid ice in others.
Stay tuned for updates on whether the Wolverine Classic race will take place on the 25th. Wish for snow! Volunteers are still needed just in case, so please reply if you can help out.
Everything (with the exception of lower Swamp Road) combed and tracked this morning (Greenbelt too). Trails are in good shape and will get better with the cold. Wish for another foot to make everything perfect. Enjoy!!!
OK…looks as though the season is about to begin. I am holding off on grooming this morning as I want to wait and see how much snow ( and when) we get. That will determine what/when/how I will groom. If you are itching to get out, I have groomed over the past few days to establish a base. I’m sure that what we have on top so far would make for some really nice skiing. However, I still recommend rock skis as there may be a few hidden spots. Feel free to ski with clippers and trim back anything that you feel is needed. There are a few spots that have many prickers in the way and they will not be covered without a few feet of snow. I will post as soon as I groom everything. If we get what is forecasted, I should be able to set track too!! Happy New Year!

The Club is open to members of all ages and levels of cross-country skiing, from beginner recreational skiers to racers. The Club provides programs to members including clinics on ski technique for all levels, equipment and waxing, and fitness and training. The Club also organizes family ski trips and off-season activities including cycling, hiking, canoeing/kayaking and roller skiing. Trips planned for this winter include Lapland Lake and Gatineau Park near Ottawa.
The Bill Koch youth program is open to children ages 6-13 and focuses on skiing fundamentals, games, touring and racing. Snow permitting, the program this year will run every Thursday from January 9th through March. Skis and poles are provided for children on a first-come, first-serve basis.
A family membership is $47 or an individual student membership is $17. The ski lesson program fee is an additional $12 per child for Wolverine Ski Club Members. The program will take place at the Trenton Fish and Game Club on Thursdays from 3:30-4:45 pm. For more information call 527-5451
