Join us to enjoy a fun early season ski in Birds Hill Provincial Park on Esker Trail that has some fun but gentle ups and downs. Even with the limited snow and melt, the trails are in good early season shape. There will be the odd bit of grass poking through and a time or two where you may have to lift a ski, but otherwise the trails are ready to go.
