Winter Trail Grooming Update: March 27, 2020

Spring conditions have arrived across much of the province.  Trails will only be regroomed if significant new snowfall occurs and temperatures are below freezing.<.p>

On ski and walking trails, expect icy patches during spring freeze/thaw cycles.  Trails will become soft as snow and frost melts.

All snowmobile trails are now closed.
