A big heartfelt thank you to Alf Skrastins for all the work he’s done to improve skiing conditions at West Bragg Creek.
Knowing Alf, he’ll be modest about his contribution and will also want to recognize all the others who have helped to upgrade the West Bragg Creek trails and rightly so. It’s just that most who read this blog are familiar with Alf because of his many ski reports throughout the winter on this blog, so let’s give him his due.
Alf enjoys skiing but you can often see him with a shovel in hand, too.
Today’s celebration centred around the recent $2.5 million facelift which includes the expanded, paved parking lot, the new maintenance compound for storing grooming equipment, and the Watershed Heritage Trail. The celebration also marked the connection of the Bragg Creek hiking trails to the Great Trail, the 24,000-kilometre national trail network.
