Our Ski Groomers

It’s really a bunch of old friends who love to ski in great tracks. They are just making it up as they go.

About us

Cross country ski trails in WBC are groomed by BCT volunteers lead by Head Groomer Jeff Hughes.

We use a few different snow machines – two sleds, one tracked quad and two tracked Japanese Kei class mini trucks ( Kei 1 & Kei 2) and this year we have a new surprise for you!

Grooming or renovating is done daily during ski season and we update our online ski tracker when we get back from grooming runs. Grooming is amazing for both classic and skate techniques.

Check out the grooming reports, weather station and webcam before heading out and be ready for a great day of classic or skate skiing!

Support BCT with your tax deducible donation, and receive up-to-date ski-grooming reports via email. Be the first to hear about – everything! Every dollar goes to gas in the tank and grease on the wheels.

A Brief History of WBC Ski Trails

OLD SCHOOL

This it how it all started with the group in 2007- a few guys and an ancient sled that never really went where we wanted it to go.
The tracks were there but tended to be shallow & wiggly. Things are quite different these days.

NEW SCHOOL

Now this is what WBC ski grooming is going to look like in 2020 and beyond. Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our supporters we have purchased this beautiful ‘Snow Rabbit’ to serve as our principle grooming machine. Thank you!

Your help keeps our trails going.
