This should be a fantastic weekend for XC skiing. Nice weather, good snow, lots of groomed trails. If you’re out on the trails today, let us know about it. If I wasn’t able to get out skiing, I’d enjoy reading about all those who did. Click on comments or send me an email.
Re: Guess the date
Nobody even came close to guessing the correct date for tracksetting on Elk Pass, so we put all the names in a hat. Congratulations to Tom Nagai, winner of a SkiHere.ca toque. Walter Bober was the winner of the Moraine Lake Road contest(I think we’d all agree that we’re happy about Walter’s winning entry since it was the earliest date picked!)
Elk Pass, Hydroline and Patterson were trackset yesterday. Blueberry Hill was groomed part way. Whiskey Jack and Tyrwhitt were groomed but are NOT recommended. I’m sure someone will try them; give us a report. Check the Kananaskis trail report for more details.
Canmore Nordic Centre
Today’s trail report from CNC shows a number of natural snow trails have been trackset including Banff Trail, Bow Trail, Meadowview and Rundle.
