Have you ever wondered why there is snow on today’s grooming. Or why the trail grooming can get poor, or stops altogether, when the snow becomes wet from warm weather or rain. Why do we groom according to a changing plan? Click here for more information on grooming at Telemark (PDF file).

Telemark is currently winning the Cross Country BC provincial membership drive, but we have another 30 days to go and Caledonia (Prince George), Sovereign Lake (Vernon), and Larch Hills (Salmon Arm) are all fighting hard to overtake us. Tell your neighbours, friends, co-workers, and extended family to purchase an annual membership so they can join our little Nordic wonderland.
The trail guys have been working like mad to get all the trails in top condition for early December opening. We have some new intermediate trail options (cut-offs from the Rabbit trail) and 2 brand new dog-legal ski and snowshoe trails.
• Group A: Will anyone catch Telemark or will it be back-to-back victories? Shuffle in the chase pack for second. Sovereign Lake has made a massive move in the past week and is now ahead of Caledonia for the first time. They’ve also regained their edge on Larch Hills, whose recent surge seems to have slowed down. And how will Kimberley fare? It’s worth noting that Kimberley had almost 1,100 members last year… absolutely incredible for a city of only 7,400 people!
