Trail Conditions/Grooming Report

Inertia: Tendency of a skier's body to resist changes in direction or speed (Newton's First Law of Motion). Goes along with this other physical law: Two objects of greatly different mass falling side by side will have the same rate of descent, but the lighter one will have larger hospital bills.

Saturday Jan 18, 2020 Winter Weather Advisory and periods of heavy snow may be possible.  That's MUSIC to our ears !! The grooming squad is ready and excited about the forecast for snow this afternoon into tomorrow. We'll gas up the machines and be ready to pack it and groom it. Get your skis waxed up.  We'll keep you updated here and on the Blackwater Facebook page. /groomer sasquatch/

Gould Hill was groomed this morning for skating. A light dusting of snow last night transformed the trails into excellent conditions! Hard to believe so go see for yourself. \groomer Will\

The trails at Gould Hill Orchard were groomed mid-day today.  Just the main upper field - nothing down in the woods. The snow is very hard with groomed granular surface.  Better for skate skiing.  No classic tracks were set as the snow cover is too thing and too hard.  There is plenty of snow considering the recent weather conditions. Its a windy afternoon up there but the sun is shining and the view is magnificent. Happy New Year !   /groomer sasquatch/

Gould Hill orchard was groomed for skate this morning and the conditions are pretty good out there.  Watch for a few ruts and grass here and there but otherwise the coverage is good.  Enjoy! Coach Rob

Welcome to a New Year.  Trails were groomed at Houston Fields (behind the Library) this morning to help you welcome in 2020 in nordic style.  Temps are above freezing already at 10AM but this heavy heavy snow we got is now well packed and we hope it will last until we get MORE SNOW.  Gould Hill trails were also groomed yesterday PM.  Get out there and enjoy the day.  WELCOME 2020!!!!! /groomer sasquatch/

Saturday December 28, 2019

Its a beautiful sunny Saturday with temps in the 40s. The snowmobiles, grooming equipment and groomers are ready for action as soon as Mpther Nature delivers the bounty of snow we anxiously await. At the moment we don't have enough snow to groom or ski on.  The current forecast for snow on Monday looks a bit meager but perhaps things will change for the better (more snow).  In the meantime we encourage everyone to DO THE SNOW DANCE.  /groomer sasquatch/

Gould Hill Trails were groomed this afternoon. That couple of inches of fresh snow from yesterday PM packed down nicely.  Don't get out your good skis quite yet because there are still a few rocks peaking thtough the snow cover.  Conditions are pretty good - a couple skiers were out enjoying the sunny afternoon while I was grooming. Maybe you should get out there too before the big warmup coming on Monday. That may set us back a bit until more snow arrives.    /Groomer Sasquatch/

Though we did not get as much as expected out of this storm, we did get enough to start some grooming.  Gould Hill Orchard was groomed this morning for skate.  Conditions are thin and the top field is windblown, but there are some trails to get out on.  Enjoy while it lasts!December 4, 2019. Coach Rob
