Update Sat Dec 13 @ 9:15 a.m. We’ve received 3 cm of snow in Canmore and it’s still coming down
Elk pass, Tyrwhitt, Hydroline, Patterson, Blueberry Hill, and Lower Lake were groomed last night. Tracksetter Jody gave this report early Saturday at 3:38 a.m.
Friday night the temperature finally dropped below freezing in PLPP after three days of warm temperatures, rain and high winds. The evening was spent trying to get under the crust as much as possible in the south end of the trail system. Check out the Live Grooming Report for full details.
Conditions will be fast and somewhat icy, but the needles have been mixed in and the fresh grooming should give a modicum of control- think spring skiing (it sure felt like spring grooming). The rest of the Park however, is currently Needlemania on Ice. On a positive note, I did see about 20 snowflakes on the way home- hopefully that is the start of more than what the forecasts are calling for.
