Wondering, are there tracked semi groomed XC trails in Chtown/QueensCty area? Perhaps Victoria Park, Beach Grove, Upton, ConfedTrail, National Park come to mind - any others/deletions?
Also, do you have to buy a pass to XC ski at Brookvale or is a pass only for ski lifts?

There are some trails on the belvedere golf course in town (probably not open yet), and some through victoria park.

There's a very extensive network in the Brookevale nordic park (just past the alpine center), i think they have some open now.

Also you can find a bunch of others at http://trailpeak.com

Is Green Gables no longer groomed? The provincial website still has it listed but it's not on trailpeak.com

The trails in National Park (Bubbling springs etc.) are no longer groomed/tracked for XC skiing - now deemed multi use for walking, pet run, snowshoeing, whatever. It's like skiing on a plowed sidewalk now - kinda suks for free skiing...
