One of TNA’s long-time groomers will be out for the majority of this season.  Fortunately we have adequate fill-in groomers but there is a learning curve for grooming at Priest and Trout our new groomers are dealing with. Please be patient as we work towards keeping the trails in the best possible condition!

Priest and Trout Lake trail systems are typically groomed on a daily basis except during a storm cycle or when other problems arise.  Skiers are encouraged to access the Trout Lake trail from Lizard Head pass due to limited parking at the lower (Trestle) trailhead.

Spring Skiing Tip: Plan your ski between the hours of 9:30 am to 1 pm to avoid too icy conditions (early) or slogging through deep corn or slush (late). Late day skiers leave deep ruts which, once frozen are difficult to groom out. The deep ski ruts also diminish the quality of skiing the following morning. Morning is also the best time for crust skiing!
