Thanks to Alf Skrastins for this report:

It looked like mid-winter conditions at West Bragg Creek today. -10C, with 10cm of fresh snow… and light snow falling. Volunteer groomers Bill and Dan were out roller-packing and grooming the new snow on on the trails mentioned by GH. New snow was covering the fresh corduroy as they went around the trail network. The packed snow needs to firm up overnight, before it can be effectively track-set.

Please note that the volunteer groomers and equipment are running on fumes after 4 months of ski grooming. If you’ve enjoyed the skiing this winter, please remember to donate, or top-up your donation.

For everyone who skis at Canmore Nordic Centre, they have a survey for you to fill out. On question 22, where it asks for “other website,” there’s an opportunity to give this blog a recommendation. 

Moraine Lake road and Great Divide were groomed and trackset today. Pipestone was done yesterday. 

David P’s report from Elk Pass indicates lots of new snow over last night’s grooming in PLPP. If you’re heading there tomorrow, be sure to check the Live Grooming Report in the morning to see which trails were trackset tonight/Sat morning. Also, if you’re there, stop in at the hut between to 2 – 4 pm for cookies and hot chocolate. MaSid and I will be there…

I agree with Alf, beautiful mid-winter ski conditions in West Bragg yesterday! We classic skid with blue/green rode multigrade the entire ski and it was perfect grip. Thank you Bill and Dan and GBCTA!
