Unfortunately, still not enough snow in Victoria Park. We need just a bit more.

Lemarchant field???

Done!!! The snow won’t be here long in HRM though.

There is plenty of snow in Gaspereau. Should be more then enough for field skiing. Not sure I'd venture in to the woods just yet but might try some fields today. Will report back..

My snow pic from enfield...no skiing tonight

Calling all roller-skiers! The provincial ski team is inviting you out to roller-ski, either at the event or from your home location, AND contribute your KMs to a grand total... calculating how many times we can roll "theoretically" club-to-club (HN - NHN).

Remember the Halifax Nordic "TRY-IT ROLLER-SKI" event happening at the same time 10AM - 2PM on NOV 10th. Come on out! These KMs count too : )

SUN NOV 10TH | 10-2 | LED Roadway Parking Lot
115 Chain Lake Drive, Halifax NS
