The winter fun has started at Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre.

More than 20 kilometres of cross-country ski trails officially open Friday.

"The conditions are good with a light covering of reasonably hard snow," said Don Wylie, general manager.

The Carl Wylie, Passmore and World Cup trails will be open and the green trail, Woodland Bell, will be added shortly.

"We welcomed the new snow this past weekend and were able to roll the powder into a reasonable base," said Wylie.

"A number of people have been skiing and giving rave reviews for the quality of the skiing given the little snow we have."

Wylie credits the trail quality to the summer work that has been occurring over the last few years, including removing the rocks and humps that require deeper snow to cover up.
