NOTES (1.15.2017):  Overall the nordic trails are skiing good with the inch of snow that fell Saturday evening into Sunday morning.  There is still thin cover in heavy conifer areas.  Frost Hill is wind blown and we recommend no nordic skiing, just snowshoe and dog friendly.

Although Burke Nordic Center is pet-friendly please refrain from using Sugarwoods and Shortcut if you are snowshoeing or have a pet with you.  Please be a responsible pet owner and encourage your pets to do their business off trail.
