Right on schedule, the snow has arrived at Lake Louise, but still not enough for packing or grooming. The Snow Forecast shows 10 cm of snow at the elevation of the MLR trailhead over the weekend. It then turns cold, so hopefully the snow will stick around.
Cheryl was in Lake Louise today and sent this report and some photos of Moraine Lake road:
“Snowing on Moraine Lake Road today. The snow was quite heavy and wet. About 3cm. Some pavement showing through. The roller is already for packing!”
I went for a ski around 5:30 pm on Frozen Thunder. Now into day eight, it’s holding up well albeit a bit sugary by late in the day. One thing I’ve noticed this year is how much cleaner the snow is. There’s hardly any dirt or sawdust, just a bit near the starting area which is probably from people tracking the dirt onto the snow.
