Fri 3 pm: Jeff is almost finished grooming and tracksetting the Kananaskis village and Ribbon creek trails. It was fun watching his progress on the Live Grooming Report. He’s just finishing now on Terrace. I hope there was enough new snow there to work with in order to get everything in top shape.
Another neat feature, if you click on the trail name at the left, it will light up on the map. You’ll have to do that on the actual website of the Live Grooming Report, not on the image above.
For anyone who braves the cold weather, you’ll also find new tracksetting on a number of trails in PLPP including Elk pass, Blueberry hill, Hydroline and Patterson. Check the PLPP trail report for the complete list.
Depending on which weather forecast you put your faith in, it could be as “warm” as -16°C in Kananaskis tomorrow.
More grooming and tracksetting has occurred in Yoho and Emerald Lake but it is going to be brass monkey cold out there on Saturday. Sunday looks tolerable. At least the sun will be shining. Tracksetter John reports, “might get some track on the Emerald connector today if Dave doesn’t hog the sled all day…. he’s going to touch up the alluvial fan at the back of Emerald lake.”
Which reminds me, if you enjoy skiing at Emerald Lake and Yoho, consider buying a $40 membership in the Kicking Horse Ski Club to assist them with the costs of grooming the trails. If you’re a ski club member, you’ll get a $99 rate if you stay at Emerald Lake Lodge. Sure hope I can get out there this winter to ski the Yoho Valley road(aka Takkakaw Falls road) when it’s been freshly trackset.
