 Trail Report – Feb. 23rd, 2018

The following is the trail report for Friday, February 23rd, at North Highlands Nordic in Cape North. The “Sleepy Hallow” section of the blue trail has been groomed and is currently in good condition for skiing. The other trails have icy and bare patches and have not yet been groomed. The groomer has been working extremely hard by packing and maintaining the base of snow that remains throughout the trails. You can still have a decent ski! Before travelling a distance, please call the ski room at, 902-383-2479, or e-mail, nhn@xcski.ca. We hope to see you soon!

The North Highlands Nordic Ski Club (NHN) was founded in 1977 by a small group of enthusiastic cross country skiers, who shared a love of winter and of the splendid scenery in the Northeast Highlands Area of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. From humble beginnings of skiing on ungroomed trails, the club has developed a very high-class facility and trail system in the village of Cape North.

NHN and operates out of a heated waxing/warmup/ski rental room in the Cape North Community Centre. A trail network consists of 12 kms of mechanically-groomed and tilled track by a Pisten Bully grooming tractor, and offers panoramic views of some of Atlantic Canada’s best scenery.

The club is proud to have hosted any number of major national and regional ski races including the 1987 Canada Winter Games, 1989 Canadian Junior Nationals, and the 1986, 1987, 1994 and 1998 Atlantic Championships and numerous Loppets and Provincial Championships
