40 cm is ski or snowshoe weather! Yippie! I don't know when I'm going to have time to clean and wax my skiis though.

Post whatever conditions you have for Durham and I'll check in the morning.

my MNR contacts are in Collingwood/wasaga beach & Ostler/massassauga...its rare that they talk to other offices, but i'll ask

Ostler tells me that there is light snow today but very windy...i'll be heading out to wasaga shortly and see for myself what its like...

but you're right, if we can't ride the trails tomorrow, we should have up to 30km of groomed XC trails, and they usually charge half price ($4.00) this early in the season, miles of snowshoe trails and parking are always free

enjoy the weekend and we can compare notes on monday

if you want some fun, try riding into this NW gale going on out there today, took me over an hour to get home and i'm soked

cheers

what a crappy weekend for riding...snow was not too deep but too fresh to ride the trails, so we stuck to riding the roads but the wind was brutal, especially on Saturday

Good thing is that our XC ski trails open today and about 30km of trails will be groomed by Friday with the back country snow shoe trails already open....

Plan is that we close the office Dec 15, back on Jan 3...then to retire in March (there really is a freedom 55...who knew?)

looks like my stable up here is ready to hibernate (except for the winterbikes)

Conditions Good at Durham

Rode Durham/Walker/Glen Major on Saturday and Sunday. Conditions are good. Only a couple of cm's of snow - not enough to ski on. As long as we don't get dumped on this week they should still be good next weekend.

Borderline

Well, we got the snow last week I was hoping wouldn't happen. Conditions are borderline but still rideable - slow going and some hills have to be walked. We're supposed to get more snow this week so it could be time for skis.

Please keep us posted on conditions especially if it's enough for skiing or snow shoes. I doubt I'll be able to go this weekend because running around I have to do but it would be great to have enough snow for the holidays.
