Wostawea news - February 3, 2016

Hello Wostaweans. What a rollercoaster ride of weather for us skiers this week!!! Hopefully we will have some snow on the ground after this snow/freezing rain/ice pellet/rain event. Here are this weeks activities

Lunar Ski - Because of the poor trail conditions expected for tomorrow, we are canceling the lunar light ski. Let's hope for better weather next week.

Wostawea Jackrabbit and adult learn to ski program – Lessons as per usual 10 am at Killarney Lake Park. Please consider bringing a snack for the hot chocolate break.

Wostawea Trails (UNB Woodlot and Kingswood) -  If the conditions for tomorrow (Thursday) are as currently forecast, the trails will be very wet and slushy. Please stay off them, until after the remaining snow dries and freezes and the  groomers can groom, hopefully  Friday. Skiing on trails when they are very wet and slushy will rut the trails, which can take a long time for the groomers to repair. Please check the blog site for updates: http://unbwoodlotski.blogspot.ca

For this week the Killarney Lake Lodge Basement is open on:

Tuesday – 4 pm to 7 pm

Thursday – closed due to anticipated poor weather conditions

Saturday – 9:30 am to 4:30 pm

Sunday – 1 pm  to 4:30 pm (longer hours because of Loppet)
