Sturgeon Road: Renovated and track set on Wednesday, March 23. Conditions are good to excellent for skate skiing and classic. NOTE: Due to construction at the sewage pumping station at the corner of Sturgeon Road and Churchill Ave. XC ski traffic to and from Kingswood Park to Sturgeon Road is redirected to the walking path that follows along the river.
