Not surprising, but still disappointing, with all this warm weather the cross-country ski trails are very fast and icy, very tricky to ski. I'd look for somewhere else to go until we get new snow.

I should also mention that the latest edition of National Geographic has as its front page story the beginnings of skiing. I haven't read it, but it looks interesting.
The Syncline trails are in very good condition. There is some dense snow in the tracks that were exposed to the wind, but otherwise there's about an inch of new snow on top of packed trails.
Also, the parking lots are cleared and easy to get in and out of.
Have fun.

All the Syncline trails are groomed including the truck box. Only a few deadfall encountered and removed. There was a ton of snow (about 18") and conditions should be excellent. The parking lot is not plowed and is impassable. However the main road is plowed wide enough one can park on the edge. We're crossing our fingers the MD of PC will be out before the weekend to plow the 2 parking lots.
If anybody knows of good skiing in the region, including B.C., pls let me know and I'll pass it on.
