The daily ritual of looking at numerous weather forecasts has returned. The ever-optimistic Snow Forecast is predicting significant snowfall(15 cm) for Lake Louise at the elevation of Moraine Lake road on Sunday and Monday.
The Weather Network is showing small amounts over the next five days. It doesn’t take a lot to make MLR skiable, but I would imagine at least 10-15 cm is necessary to get any kind of a decent base.
Does anyone want the Olympics? I found it amusing that the Canadian Taxpayers Federation would come out in support of Sweden’s bid for the 2026 game…but hold on. A Swedish Taxpayer Group is endorsing Calgary’s bid. Strange optics. Has the corruption and cheating finally taken its toll? Beckie Scott resigned from WADA due to frustration over reinstating the Russian Anti-Doping Agency.
