Copy and paste web address below for a grooming app we are trying out.  It tracks the trails we groom throughout the day and has a chart of when trails were last groomed, length of trails and additional information.

See the Trail Grooming / Track Setting Report below for most recent grooming by trail section.

Please take caution around the grooming equipment.  It is your responsibility as a skier to move clear of the trail.  Make sure your skis are completely off the packed trail, we are towing equipment that reaches or extends past the edge.  When we move out of a skiers way it often requires re doing the grooming circuit or in snowy conditions, we get stuck, this means that we won’t be able to get to other trails and limits the overall grooming.


Note to Day-Use Visitors:  Current day-use fees are: Adult $15, Couple $25, Family $20, Junior or Student $5.  Please see our Membership & Fees page for all membership and day-use fees.

Note to Club Members:  At the Mud Lake (Viking Centre) trailhead, please sign-in at the separate ‘members only’ sign-in station and ensure your membership badge is externally visible.  Thank you!
