Dollar Lake Update: Please do not ski or use #DollarTrails until further notice. After temps drop on Monday night we will wander out and hopefully the rain will have passed through the unpacked snow. Skiing Monday will create ice.

The groomers are on the move, I am packing the tent and heaters. The loppet starts at 9:30 am and you can register on site as well. Thanks to the 40 that pre-registered that will speed up the process.

NordicFest will not be going on this year as we thought it best to hold off a year as we get snowmaking underway at Brunello. We are a small group of volunteers- are launching snowmaking at Brunello, hosting NS 2019... https://t.co/J6ExV7eNTx
Thank you Halifax Water for hooking up the water at The Links at Brunello. This begins the next phase in Halifax Nordic's snow making project..
TESTING: The staff at Brunello will be out this week to test the new infrastructure for snow making.
2019 SET UP: We have a new shed (pic 1), plumbing (pic 2), two pumps, 4 snow guns, hoses (pic 3), a drainage system for the water and a new landscaped loop for skiing.
THIS WEEK: The staff at Brunello will be testing the new lines, hoses and equipment and we will keep you posted on progress. In pic 3 below, you can see all the equipment set up in the loop, waiting for the temperatures to drop.
Snow making is an ambitious project we launched last year to bring more consistent snow and a longer season for our Halifax Nordic members. This is a new project for Halifax Nordic as well as Brunello and we appreciate everyone's patience as we work through the testing phase of the new equipment and we will bring you snow as soon as we can.
