I don’t believe I’ve ever posted a photo of Maple Ridge golf course before, so thanks to Rhonda W for sending it. This is her report: “Skied the Maple Ridge Golf Course today. Absolutely beautiful and I was happily surprised by how big the loop around the outside is. I skied for just over an hour on one loop without backtracking….in the bright sun and blue sky.”
If you checked the Live Grooming Reports today, you’ll see that tracksetter Jeff has done an epic grooming session including Skogan Pass, Skogan Loop, Sunburst, High Level, Ruthie’s, Hidden, Hay Meadow, and Troll Falls.
Jeff sent me the photo of Troll Falls in pristine condition because it’s so unusual to see it with unblemished tracks. It’ll be a mess by Saturday afternoon.
I’ll be interested to hear how the Lower Skogan ice flow is. With all this grooming, there are three other ways to access Upper Skogan without actually skiing on Lower Skogan. My choice would be to park at Stoney trailhead and take Troll Falls or Hay Meadow, then Ruthie’s. Hidden is another option if you don’t mind skiing right through Nakiska.
