Chuck took this beautiful photo on yesterday’s ski trip…
“FLINTS PARK JCT. & CUTHEAD – Jan 24
8 hour ski and 50 kms has it rewards:
Striking similarities to our Redearth trip last year!
This is the year to explore here – skier set tracked by Parks Canada and no roaming Bison!”
See the other Lynx in these photos:
If you’re wondering about Chuck’s reference to bison, here’s some background This bison calf is special
It was right around this time last year when Chuck took some even more spectacular photos of a lynx on Redearth Creek
Skogan Pass was groomed yesterday. The remarks on the trail report indicate that access on Lower Skogan is cut off by the ice flow, but Troll Falls and Ruthies’s were groomed so you could access it that way, or via Nakiska.
The south trails in PLPP were groomed last night including Elk Pass, Blueberry, Tyrwhitt, Lookout, Hydroline and Patterson. This area received significant snow, so it should help cover most of the tree debris which we’ve been hearing about.
The Mud Lake weather station indicates 8 cm of new snow in the past 24 hours. Mud Lake is near the Chester Lake/Burstall Pass trailheads. Tuesday night’s grooming at Mt Shark will likely have fresh snow on top.
It also appeared from yesterday’s webcams that it was snowing at Lake Louise.
The weather forecasts are predicting a significant snowfall on Monday/Tuesday.
At least 5 cm of new snow overnight at Lake Louise. Currently pouring down with snow- a snow monsoon!
