-Lots of snow on Moraine Lake road today. Photo by Chuck O’Callaghan-
Update Mon Nov 2 @10:35 a.m: I’ve been informed by Parks Canada that trail grooming on Moraine Lake road will commence on Thursday, Nov 5.
Update Nov 1 @ 8 pm: Check the November Trip Reports for the FANTASTIC NEWS and great photos from Chuck. Trip Reports are on the Main Menu.
It’s Nov 1, and we’re getting snow! Just like it’s supposed to happen. The Lake Louise webcams received a lot of hits today, including a few from me.
Chuck O’Callaghan reports about 25 cm of ungroomed snow on Moraine Lake road.
The storm rolled through the Bow Valley this morning and arrived in Canmore around 11:30 a.m. and lasted about a half-hour.
The Canmore Nordic Centre received about 3 cm. I didn’t ski at Frozen Thunder, but stopped there around 5:30 pm and took a few pictures. The track was nicely topped-up with the fresh snow, and classic skiers were using hard wax.
Although the weather forecast leads me to believe most of the new snow in Canmore will melt, it shows colder temperatures for Lake Louise, never rising above zero for the next five days. There are snow flurries predicted tonight and tomorrow as well.
A reminder to enter the contest. What day do you think the first tracksetting will occur on Elk pass? Contest Page. You can guess a date that’s already been picked. If we have multiple correct guesses, the winner will be chosen from a hat, but there’s also a second prize.
The Peter Lougheed Provincial Park webcam showed a skiff of snow at the PLPP Visitor Centre.
All 12 photos have been correctly identified in the latest “Guess the trail” contest. There’s still one leftover from the previous contest which no one has correctly identified, so I’m posting the photo below again. There will be some red faces when you discover the name of this trail.

Me and my husband are from Rosemère Québec and we’ve been going to Canmore for the past 5 years around December 6 to 12 always. Last year, this was the only place we could ski! It’s Morane Lake Road.
We can’t wait to be there again this year!
Thanks for this great web site!

That’s Moraine lake road. About 5.5-6 k in.
Finally! and congratulations. Temple mountain, if not hidden by clouds, would have made it a lot easier.
