Ghost trails

-One of my all-time favourite trails and photos. Sadly, this section of trail is gone forever-

These photos should bring back a lot of memories of fabulous ski trips from days gone by. The floods of 2013 wiped out many trails and bridges and I’m sad to say, some of the best trails as you can see in these photos. How many of these “ghost” trails and bridges can you identify?

I’ve left comments with most of the photos indicating what happened and if it was rebuilt, re-routed, or gone forever.

Off the topic, RichieRich left a comment wondering “Can anyone offer any updates as to how the approval process is going for allowing snowmaking” at Confederation and Shaganappi golf courses. I’m sure he’s not the only one with that on his mind. I hope we can get some updates.

Can you name these “Ghost” trails and bridges?
