The continuing cold weather brings good news for local cross-country skiiers.

The city said Monday morning that it has managed to fully open the trail system at the Wheat City golf Course, thanks to a good amount of snowfall in the past month, and little or no melting.

There are about six-and-a-half kilometres of groomed cross-country skiing trails at the golf course, including several kilometres that are lit for evening skiing. Only about half of that was open earlier this winter, as workers were taking down flood-damaged trees along the Assiniboine River.

This year also saw the creation of a cross-country ski trail system around Canada Games Park, near the Waterfall of Lights and the skating oval. However, some of the 3.5-km of trails there are currently closed due to work being done in the area.

Skiers are being asked to watch for signs on the trails in Canada Games Park and not to enter barricaded areas.

The City’s various ski trails, along with the skating oval, the Waterfall of Lights and the toboggan run at Hanbury Hill, are expected to remain open through the month of March, depending on the weather.
