When the conditions are right, the Rockford Park District offers cross-country skiing on the trails at Sinnissippi Golf Course and Aldeen Golf Club.
The Rockford Park District strives to make sure participants experience the very best ski conditions, and would like skiers to keep in mind the following:
- A minimum of 4 inches of snow is required for trails to be groomed (tracking)
- Grooming will not occur while it is snowing, raining, or in icy conditions. Grooming will occur within 24 hours of an adequate snowfall, provided the weather allows for safe grooming to occur.
- Grooming will occur after staff has completed snow plowing duties.
- For the safety of staff, grooming will not occur when the temperature is 0°F or below, or if the winds are more than 10 mph. This is based on the National Weather Service Wind Chill Index.
- Trails will be inspected and groomed if necessary during the following days/times: (Monday through Friday - morning and afternoon) ; (Saturday and Sunday - morning)
