It looks like we got our wish. The Banff trail report has an update for Lake Louise today:
Cross-Country Skiing: Lake Louise Area Trails
CONDITIONS: First ski report of the season! There is 9 cm of fresh snow on ground this morning (November 4), and a reasonable base for the two early season trails, Moraine Lake and the 1A. PLANNED GROOMING: The Moraine Lake Road will be trackset on November 4, and the initial packing of the 1A is scheduled for November 4.
Moraine Lake road should be fantastic for the weekend.
As I write this at 11:41 a.m, I see there’s a snowfall warning in effect for Nakiska which should bode well for the Ribbon Creek area. We’re lucky if we received 2 cm so far in Canmore.
