River Bend ski trails outstanding

We are so fortunate to live in a city that maintains our community rinks and ski trails to the benefit of all. As an avid cross-country skier, I feel compelled to recognize and promote the outstanding trail grooming that the River Bend Golf and Recreation Area maintenance crew has been doing on the cross-country ski trails this year.

As an avid cross-country skier, I feel compelled to recognize and promote the outstanding trail grooming that the River Bend Golf and Recreation Area maintenance crew has been doing on the cross-country ski trails this year.

Having been recognized last year as Alberta’s best cross-country ski facility operator, River Bend has gone one step further this year, providing even more exceptional, daily grooming. The result has been an outstanding ski experience for all who are lucky enough to venture out to the River Bend Recreation Area.

Many local skiers have commented to me that they are amazed at how good the ski conditions are at River Bend despite the lack of fresh snow, and icy conditions evident around the city. The grooming and dedication to excellence shown by the groomers this season is apparent in the exceptional quality of the ski trails in these challenging conditions.

Thanks to our civic leaders for their commitment and dedication in helping to create opportunities for healthy, active lifestyles in our parks and green spaces. I no longer need to drive to the Canmore Nordic Centre. I can have an outstanding ski experience here in Red Deer!

If you have not been out to River Bend yet this year, it is time to dust off your skis and come experience some of the best maintained ski trails in Alberta. If you happen to see a groomer out on the trails, stop and thank them for their exceptional work as well.

See you on the trails.
