There is some skiing at the Nordic Centre. With our low snowpact grooming has been done with Ginzu Groomer and all trails have not been set, check out what is set. The Community Forest Road to the Demonstrtion Area is now closed for logging activity.Lower and Upper and Valley View  Roads are still skiable. Hang in there snow is coming.

Trail closure lifted - Dec 14

Conservation Officers lifted the closure notice for the dog and Pine Creek trails. People can now go on the trails but the Nordic Centre is not officially open until we get more snow. According to the CO Service there has been no recent sign of the wolves. The moose carcasses have been removed so the wolves have apparently moved on. 
Please be aware that the Nordic Centre is in wildlife territory, so be watchful for any large animals such as wolves, moose, lynx, etc.

And think snow so we can officially open.

Trail closure continues - Dec 11

Dog trails and Pine Creek continue be closed to allow conservation officers to monitor wolf activity. A wolf attacked a skier's dog last Thursday. The fact that it was in the vicinity of a recent moose kill indicates it was not a random attack nor a case of wolves preying on dogs. 

The Nordic Centre is not officially open yet due to insufficient snow.  Updates will be provided when the conservation officers lift the closure and/or we get enough snow to allow grooming and skiing without damage to grooming equipment or your skis. 

Wolf update - Dec 8

Update on the trail closure. On Wed Dec 7, a wolf attacked and killed a skier's dog while on the dog trail. The skier was not hurt. Conservation Officers are investigating and say this is an extremely rare event. The ski trails are closed for all activities until further notice while the COs continue to investigate. The BV Nordic Centre is not yet officially open due to lack of snow.  Prior to grooming and track setting we need a sufficient snow base to ensure proper conditions for the grooming equipment to operate. 

As information becomes available on the incident and the official opening, you will be updated. 

Thank you for your patience!

Wolf warning - Dec 7

WARNING!  Aggressive wolves have been encountered on the dog trails. The Pine Creek and dog trails will be closed Thursday Dec 8 while the conservation officers investigate. Please do not ski any of the Nordic Centre trails until we get advice from the conservation officers.

Tuesday Dec.6

Well as we all know our predicted snow never came. But we have managed to use the snow we do have. The Ginzu groomers set a number of trails  for some nice skiing including Logging Rds, part of Perimiter Trail, Hound Heaven,2..5 and 3K. We are not officially open- Lodge is open.

Monday Nov. 28

Snow is finally coming.Tracksetting will take place as soon as possible and will keep you posted.. There will be logging near the Demonstration Forest -so the Community Forest Road is closed until they are finished. Access will be through the Perimeter Trail to the Lower and Upper Logging Roads and Valley View Trail.. 

Nov 27 update

Not much snow yet. About 10 cm in the stadium which has been packed down to 2 or 3 cm. OK for a base but not enough to cover everything.  We need a good snowfall before it can be tracked.

This is the same situation as this time last year. We will hopefully open in early December.
