Before I get started, let’s look at some grooming/snowfall updates:

    Parks Canada tracksetter Jeff reports:  Moraine Lake Road on Sat. morn. ( -25 C ) single track up and down / skate lane as well. Lower Tramline single track set. Bow River loop single track set. Great Divide on Monday.

  • Kananaskis tracksetter Jeff reports 80 cm of unplowed snow in the Ribbon creek parking lot
  • Chateau tracksetter Jeff Douglas has sent a lengthy and detailed account of his activities on the Upper Lake Louise trails Holy Moly! What a start to the tracksetting season!
  • Confederation golf course in Calgary is trackset
  • If you want your child to grow up to be a tracksetter, what would you name him/her?

Spray River

I don’t think my snow shovelling photos can compete with these great pictures which Chuck took today on the Spray river loop in Banff National Park. We can usually count on the fearless Chuck or courageous Helen to keep this blog going on ultra-cold and snowy days.

Chuck reports:

With 55 cm of fresh snow in our backyard this morning, and a temperature of -23C, I decided to ski from home and head to the Spray through the back woods.
With all the new snow, it was a good opportunity to do the loop of Spray West and Spray East, and take in a little photography on such a beautiful day.
Many nice folks had the same idea!
