The word is that about 10 cm of snow fell last night in K-Country. I am hoping the Chester-Sawmill trails will be groomed again before the weekend, ditto Mt. Shark, and maybe we’ll see some skiing at Elk Pass. In Canmore, in my back yard, it looked like about 4-5 cm.
I skied for the first time at the Canmore Nordic Centre today. They have two small loops totalling 3K. There’s one classic track along with a wide skating lane. The snow is packed hard as it always is when it’s man-made. I thought the conditions for skating were fabulous. For such a short distance, there are plenty of hills and if you snowplow down the hills when you are classic skiing bring lots of grip wax. The snow here is very abrasive.
You’ll see on the additional photos that the snow guns are working hard, and there’s lots of snow piling up so let’s hope they’ll add some more trails soon.
Banff National Park reports they also received new snow at Lake Louise which is presently being groomed and trackset.
