Halifax Nordic is now grooming 5 trails: Brunello, Dollar Lake, McDonald Sports ParkGraves-Oakley and Smileys Provincial Park. Please click on the trail for directions, details and maps for each trail. Below is an overview of the trails.

It is important to make sure the trails are set before members ski, so please wait until our groomers post that the trails are open before heading out.   This will ensure that snow lasts a little bit longer on the trails and better conditions overall.  We have also invested in more trail signage this season and will be updating signage on new trails as we bring them on board and are familiar with grooming.   Please make sure you follow signage for directions, parking as well as any emergency information.  Skiing the wrong way on a trail could mean a collision with another skier, so please follow signage.

Our volunteer groomers as well as our members regularly post updates on our trail conditions on Twitter. Below are the most recent tweets, but for more details  please visit HfxNordic for past reports on conditions.Trail conditions can change from day to day, and we don’t groom every park every day. The best way to keep updated on trail conditions is to follow us on Twitter:  @HFXNordic. The groomers will use Twitter to report trail and grooming updates at all of the parks, so if you want to get the latest trail conditions, start following us, and Tweet to @HFXNordic to report trail conditions after you ski to let other members know. The latest tweets are below, but for more, check out @HFXNordic. We use the following trail #hashtags:

Dollar Lake:         #DollarTrails
Brunello:              #BrunelloTrails
MSP:                   #MSPTrails
Graves-Oakley:   #GOTrails
Smileys::            #SmileysTrails

Who knew we’d be getting a snow storm April 8th- not us! Our grooming equipment has been stored away for the summer so we will not be grooming tomorrow. That said- bring out your classic skis and go for a ski on one of the HRM trails!

Does man made snow stick around? If we weren't working on improving the snow bowl area we would still be skiing.

Kouch loppet results. Thanks to Kouchibouguac park, Julian and Roland and Janic whom ran the race on the course.

Brunello's snow bowl is open and groomed. All other trails are icy and dangerous so the only skiing is the snow bowl.

MSP and Smiley have not been groomed and may be impossible to groom. HNSC recommends not skiing... https://t.co/hHrcc6oiIO

The Honey Pot Loppet on Sunday was lots of fun and well organized. There were many skiers of all ages and abilities out at Victoria Park taking advantage of the snow and great weather. Thanks for a fun event!
