Trails & Grooming 4

Glacier Nordic Club operates courses at the Whitefish Lake Golf Course and on Big Mountain adjacent to Whitefish Mountain Resort. Daily Grooming Reports are below.  For trail maps and more location information go to either Glacier Nordic Center at the Whitefish Lake Golf Course page or the Big Mountain Nordic Trails page

Trail Reports:

Whitefish Lake Golf Course

11/10 – We are hoping to get the ground to freeze before we start grooming which will better preserve the course for the season.  Equipment is getting moved to the golf course today.

Big Mountain Nordic Trails (this year we will include the entire network in our grooming reports)

11/10 – With the new trail head we have a new user agreement to get signed with the City of Whitefish before we can groom – the earliest for this will  likely be November 20.  We (nor Iron Horse) can  groom on Stoltze land until November 27th due to hunting season.  Our plan is still to get the missing bridge back in place to have both groomer and skier access on Cedar across Haskill Creek.

Notice about Fat Bikes:

Fat Bikes are not allowed on any of Glacier Nordic Club’s groomed trails at Whitefish Lake Golf Course and on Big Mountain on Winter Sports, Inc. land.  On other trails please use best practices and do not ride if you sink in more that 1″ and yield to other users.   Thank you for heeding this important notice.

    Is it possible that your grooming “report” could contain some information about the actual CONDITIONS of the course? Otherwise your “report” is only stating the fact that the trails have been groomed – which is typically what happens everyday; unless there is some unforeseen reason they haven’t – breakdown, too mushy etc… I think many of us would like an idea of what the snow conditions are actually like, or if things are just bullet proof, or are things softening up a bit etc… some us travel a certain amount of distance to enjoy the trails and giving folks an idea of what conditions are actually like would be great! These reports do not have to be extensive or anything just give us an idea of what its like on the course Thanks for all the great work out there.

    we skied the Nordic Center today. Thank you, my shoulders thank you, my back thanks you for moving the tracks in. It is really nice to use both of my poles the way they are meant to be used.

    Nice job on “the Big”! Classic tracks were really good and all of my pole plants were solid. thanks for moving the grooves in a bit 🙂
