XC ski conditions throughout the Park are POOR, and very sticky. There may be lots of snow on the ground, but there’s a lot of ice too! Larry was unable to groom this morning due to the icy conditions next to the pavement. Walkers, in particular, should exercise extreme caution! We’ll try again tomorrow to groom and set tracks and let you know how we do. Have fun. Stay safe!
For those of you wanting to borrow equipment:
Unfortunately, due to covid safety protocols, the Friends of Ellenwood Park will not be loaning out equipment this season. Sport Nova Scotia has set strict rules for the loaning and/or rental of skis and boots – and the size of the ski cabin plus the way in which we fit individuals makes it impossible for us to meet their guidelines. We will be grooming and setting track throughout the Park this season, but the cabin will remain closed. Sorry! Believe me, we wish it were otherwise.
