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.

Trail Trail Hashtag Level Skate Classic Kms
Brunello Golf Course  #BrunelloTrails Intermediate Skate 10
MacDonald Sports Park #MSPTrails Beginner & Intermediate Skate Classic (limited) 7.5
Dollar Lake Provincial Park #DollarTrails Intermediate Skate Classic 10
Graves Oakley #GOTrails Beginner Skate 1
Smileys Provincial Park #SmileysTrails Beginner & Intermediate Skate Classic TBD

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

Supporting a local entrepreneur with his new tool to help tenants find rental apartments. My NSCC students have worked with Oleg and Yomes to improve this tool. https://t.co/fyL3WIX8eG

Just pulled the equipment from Smiley's for the season. What a great way to end things, we even got in a ski in t shirts as it was that warm tonight. See you next year

It is a good time to mention that Halifax Nordic was able to groom Smiley Park thanks to
