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:

Brunello and Oakfield cart paths are now showing bare patches and should be used at your own risk. The Snow Bowl is open with a good 2 ft base and is ready for lessons tomorrow. Smiley is still in great shape and will be groomed tomorrow am. Enjoy the weekend. 👍

#GOTrails- Closed

#BrunelloTrails- Open -ski w caution: hard packed thin snow -some ice/bare spots

#MSPTrails- Hard & icy due to traffic. Skiable- use caution

#DollarTrails & #SmileysTrails: Both wonderful soft snow & base

#OakfieldTrails- good -great -some windswept areas

Brunello was fast this evening with a fair amount of icy conditions and bare patches on exposed areas of the trail. The driving range had fairly good coverage and was good for lessons.

Thanks to all skiers who reported trail conditions today. Facebook reports and pics from skiers today are saying Smileys has the best conditions. #SmileysTrails

Oakfield Is groomed. Oakfield Golf and Country Club is our latest trail to be added. Let us know conditions if you are on the trails. Post pics and updates to Facebook for other skiers. #OakfieldTrails

Dollar lake system is groomed up nicely as well. Complete with classic track on all except the first 700mtr. section. #DollarTrails

Smiley Provincial Park is groomed with a 25 foot width and track set. Lots of fresh dry snow. Definitely a 10 out of 10! Get out and enjoy! ❄️🎿

Macdonald Sports Park groomed this morning. Few thin spots under big trees- be cautious as small small rocks poking through. Good coverage otherwise and should be a good ski. Reminder that MSP is our dog friendly trail. #MSPTrails #dogs #Halifax http://www.halifaxnordic.ca/trails
