Hornbeck Trails conditions – Friday, January 12, 2013:  We have received about 7 cms of new snow in the past week.  The Hornbeck Trails were all groomed and track set by today.  Conditions are generally good.  Expect a very rough crossing of the muskeg on the White Rabbit trail (if you ski this trail, ski with caution).  Expect some thin spots on the back of the 15K trail, where the snowpack had melted away in the warm temperatures of December.

The Hornbeck Trails are mostly snow-covered, and we have received a couple of centimeters of new snow over the past 24 hours.  A bridge on the trails, on the Lambert Road 1/2 km from the trailhead, was replaced yesterday.  The trails around the bridge are rough from heavy equipment activity, and skiers should approach with caution and take their skis off to cross it.  Otherwise, the trails are mostly skiable although not groomed and trackset since two weeks ago.  With the warm weather, bare spots are starting to spread across the trails in places – watch out for them.  The parking lot will be locked, but there is room to park three or four vehicles outside the gate.  No more grooming is planned.
