Lots of new snow last night. This was just what we needed for all those trails which had turned icy during that brief warm spell. Most of the trails at the Canmore Nordic Centre were groomed and trackset this morning.
It had stopped snowing, at least while I was out shoveling, but I see it’s coming down again, albeit very lightly. The forecast is calling for an additional 5 – 10 cm today and 2- 4 cm tomorrow.
My back yard thermometer reads -16.
Loads of new snow at PLPP on Saturday. Lured by early Saturday morning tracksetting on Whiskeyjack, Packers and Pocaterra we pulled into Boulton parking lot into knee deep new snow, but were afraid to stop and park our CRV lest we get bogged down. Decided instead to ski a loop in the Visitor Center-Pocaterra area where the new snow depth was much less. Skiing was decent, but somewhat slow in the cold new snow, on a mix of skier set and trackset (with overlying new) trails. Temperature stayed a steady minus 13 all afternoon, with continuing light snow. Hwy’s #1 and 40 in reasonable winter driving condition, in my opinion.
