-The Bill Milne trail in Kananaskis-
With the excellent conditions this winter, the Bill Milne trail in Kananaskis has been discovered by many classic and skate skiers who may not have checked it out previously. It’s still in remarkably good condition with cold snow and good tracks.
The warmer weather has not caused any deterioration of the snow. I took Tessa there late this afternoon and we skied between Ribbon creek and the golf course. Air temperature was -2°C, and the snow was -5. It hasn’t been groomed for 11 days, but it’s holding up amazingly well.
It’s difficult to find anything on the internet about Bill Milne, but the plaque on the Bill Milne trail gives a few details. I also found this story in the Calgary Herald from 2008 Calgary Tower Designer Bill Milne Dies
