Don’t ski at West Bragg

in West Bragg Creek

Hi Bob
Let people know that they shouldn’t even think about skiing at west bragg creek until the trails receive more snow. The trails are a combination of bullet proof ice, bare ground, and black snow. No tracks and I doubt a skate ski could bite into the ice even if the weather warms up. I see lots of sad faces leaving west bragg.

Good mountain bike conditions if you have studded tires though ????

Here’s my trail report for West Bragg Creek as of Feb 25.
The winner of the snow lottery today was West Bragg Creek. There was 10cm of new snow overnight in addition to the 10cm that fell on the weekend. Winter is back and the volunteer groomers have been out packing and grooming the trails. There may be a few thin spots under large trees or on south facing hills, but everything I skied was in great shape. And the good news is that it was still snowing at the end of the day!

Moose area and Bragg trails are a mix of ice-slush-dry dirt-frozen dirt (aka mud when it thaws), best ridden when frozen.

Thanks! Suspected as much, but nice to know for certain.

Bummer! I have a lot of time on my hands right now (laid off due to the oil price). It would be nice to be able to get out for some nearby XC stress relief. Let it snow!
