** Brunello Cart Path on Back Nine rarely suitable for skiing due to high winds that blow snow off trail, advanced skiers only. 

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:

Graves Oakley Memorial Park is ready for a beautiful day of skiing. Enjoy it before it disappears. See you all next year. 🌞😊🎿

The wind has died down and completed an initial groom. A little wet in spots but it’s going to be cold tonight. Will be back at 7:30 AM to do another groom. This is your last kick at winter, enjoy the day skiing in the sunshine 🌞

A final blast of winter may give us one more day of skiing. We are going to Graves Oakley at 730am to attempt a groom. For now, the wind is still drifting and it’s hard to see if there is enough coverage to put a trail down. 🌪 Stay tuned in the am Saturday for an update . 🤞
