1000 and 2000

Yesterday as I was on the homestretch on Mountain Road at West Bragg Creek I reached 1000 kilometres of skiing for this winter. 

Today, with this update, I have written 2000 posts on this blog since it’s inception in 2008. 

Helen Read is at 1100K, and Alf Skrastins total is in the stratosphere.

As I write this at 11 a.m. on Wednesday morning, Skogan Pass, Sunburst, High Level, and the Skogan Loop are in the process of being groomed. The Bill  Milne trail along with Wedge Connector and Evan-Thomas were groomed yesterday. Those trails are in fantastic condition right now. 

Cascade Valley was trackset yesterday.

Tonight(Wednesday) at 9:30 pm is the deadline for entering this Saturday’s Cookie Race in PLPP. Should be fantastic conditions and nice weather. The confirmation list shows 488 skiers registered so far.

Thanks for mentioning the Cookie Race Bob. The conditions do look perfect!

For those making weekend plans, please note that the entire PLPP trail system remains open on Saturday during the race. But Pocaterra Hut will be a hive of activity, so you’ll find the other trailheads more peaceful. Also, the single-track of Moraine and Fox Creek will be a little hazardous between 11am and 1pm as the racers descend that stretch at full tilt.

Registration has closed, but volunteer opportunities remain at http://www.volunteersignup.org/KBELR for anyone looking for excitement and home-baked cookies.
