The City of Morden has been hosting a range of outdoor activities all winter from skating, to curling, to snowshoeing and skiing.

Recreation Programmer Stephanie Dueck says the five-kilometre ski trail has been getting a lot of attention this year and thankfully, the groomers have been able to keep up for the majority of that time.

"We're looking to increase the users of the trails because it is a great trail, and our parks and urban forestry team have done a great job of maintaining them," adding "there was a short stretch where we had some maintenance issues with our equipment so they weren't being regularly groomed at that time. Other than that stretch they have been groomed throughout the winter and we plan to do that continually winter after winter."

She says this year's snowfall also helped to make the trail conditions favourable which have brought out a number of people.

"We don't really have a way of seeing how many are using it, but we are getting some likes on social media when we share, and we do run into the odd person that talks about how they enjoy the trails," says Dueck.

For those still wanting to take in the beautiful trails that loop through and around the golf course, there is little time left with warmer weather on the horizon.

"You will need to bring your own skis. We don't have ski rentals at this point, but that may be something we look at in the future. For now, people can bring their own skis or Country Cycle does rent skis that you can take anywhere," she says.
