Here’s the report from Chuck…
First ski trip of the season was Great!
As the Great Divide was not ploughed last week, this trail had a base that is now frozen. And yesterday it got a few centimeters of fresh snow on top of it. The first kilometre to the meadow is sun affected, but conditions improve rapidly, and were really good at the 5 or 6 kilometre mark. Pole tips did not even strike pavement then because of the ice layer underneath the snow.
You may even see a moose who has been active in the area.
There was quite a bit of activity at the Moraine Lake Road, but it included Fat Tire Bikers and Hikers on a road that had been driven on since the snow (as well as ploughed for the weekend), so we were happy with our choice. Saw nobody all day!

This is from Kevin at Foothills Nordic ski Club:
It is very important that the City of Calgary knows that the nordic ski community supports the efforts to improve cross country skiing in Calgary.
We asked the City “What is the best way for the nordic ski community to express its support for our proposal?”.
This is the process that was provided to us:
Follow this link:
Select “Recreation – Golf Course Inquiry” as the service type and click “Go”.
Then let the City know that you support Foothills’ proposal for improving nordic skiing factilites at Confederation and why you think it is so important.
Let your voice be heard. Thanks!
