Update Sat Nov 24 @ 8:45 am: 12 cm of good-quality snow in Calgary. Ray Perrott reports 1 cm in Canmore. Webcam at the PetroCan(Hwy 1&22) shows the ground is snow-covered whereas yesterday it was bare ground.
At 9:30 pm in Calgary, I have about 8 cm of high-density snow. The mountains aren’t receiving as much as the city from this upslope system, but I was happy to read MaSid’s report of snow throughout the day at Elk Pass. Hopefully it will be enough to allow more grooming on Elk Pass and Blueberry Hill.
The snow is predicted to continue throughout the night, so there might be some hope of Calgary golf courses being groomed. I have no idea if West Bragg Creek is receiving any of this snow.
I checked webcams when it was still daylight and didn’t see much snowfall at Dead Man’s or Castle Junction. Hugh reported 3 cm on the Great Divide at Lake Louise, and it was in the process of being groomed. If you want good conditions and trackset trails, the best bets for skiing tomorrow(Saturday) are still Moraine Lake road and the Great Divide.

Alberta Cup races at CNC this weekend will mean most of the skiable terrain will be closed to the public from 8 am to 5 pm. There is approximately 1K of tracksetting available to the public from the stadium to Jct 3 on Banff Trail.
