Trail conditions in the City of Red Deer
Description of venue:
River Bend has beautiful new trails that have been designed for the enjoyment of all skiers – making the hills more accessible and safer for a wide variety of skills. There is also a Light Park with 4km lit for night skiing (until 9pm) - find and press the red buttons (there are 3) to turn on the lights! The new trails will be showcased nationally at the Canada Winter Games ski and biathlon races in February 2019. Our groomers are out each weekday grooming various sections of the 15 km trail system. You will always find freshly groomed skate and classic trails somewhere along the River Bend & Recreation Area trail system. In preparation for the Canada Winter Games you may come upon snowguns and other specialized equipment making and moving snow on the trails. Please use caution or avoid these areas. Enjoy the trails!
Old snow, several thin spots. Rock skis recommended. Artificial snow being blown onto the main stadium and the biathlon stadium areas.
|Driving range loop-1.5 km|
|Perimeter trail-5 km flat|

Jan 12: In preparation for the Canada Winter Games, many piles of artificial snow have been made in the CC and Biathlon stadium areas (please be careful). The snowcat should arrive Monday to turn these piles into beautiful ski tracks. The rest of the trails (natural snow) are groomed regularly - but getting thin in spots (watch for brown spots). Artificial snow will be made on trails in the Hills once the weather is cold enough to turn the snowguns back on.

Great Chief/Heritage Ranch

A lovely set of classic ski trails loop around Great Chief Park then connect across the river to wind through the treed Heritage Ranch trails. You can access the trailheads from either location.
Generally good classical skiing on all trails. Some construction disruption on the ball diamond loops.

Last groom was on January 19 and classical conditions are excellent up and into Heritage Ranch. Most of the ball diamond loops at GCP are good except in the construction areas near Ball diamond 1
