A rejuvenated Frozen Thunder

All we needed was some cold weather and new snow to create excellent conditions on Frozen thunder at the Canmore Nordic Centre. It was worth shutting it down for one day, because the transformation is remarkable.

Excellent tracks at Frozen Thunder

Frozen Thunder had perfect, firm tracks and cold snow which allowed classic skiers to use their waxable skis. The snow temperature was -9°C, and the air was -11.

The snow guns are making lots of snow, and with the cold weather they should continue to do so. It remains to be seen if any new terrain will be open for skiing this weekend.

Did anyone check out the recent grooming at Lake Louise, namely the Great Divide and Tramline?

  1. Moraine Lake Rd. & Great Divide were groomed Nov 10 and 11 respectively w/appx. 2 inches compact snow on both. Tramline will be groomed midday Nov 12. No set classic tracks on any trails in the Lake Louise area but skiers have made well defined “ski set” tracks for classic skiing.

  2. On the ‘looking west’ Canmore Main street web cam, the vision of the snow making up at the CNC makes it look like the side of Mount Rundle has erupted with volcanic activity !
