Update: Sunday at 12 noon. This photo was sent in a few minutes ago from the Kicking Horse Ski Club:
Now that the snow has pretty well ended, I received exactly what the forecast predicted for Calgary, 9 cm.
To see which trails have been groomed at West Bragg Creek today, check the Live Grooming Report.
Manfred Kintop sent the photo of the dogs and this report from the Great Divide:
“Busy day on the Great Divide trail. Great conditions with just a few twigs still sticking up through the track. Cold snow and -7 made for a pleasant christening of my new skintecs. Loved seeing the dog sleds whipping past!” -Manfred Kintop
As with last weekend’s snowfall, Calgary and points east appear to have received more snow than the mountains. It will be interesting to see what we hear on the trip reports later today. There’s no snow in the forecast, so this is all we’ve got for now. The updated trail report from Lake Louise remarked “All trails are snow covered” so the mountains obviously received some of this snow. Mud Lake shows 6 cm of new snow.
A reminder, it’s another race weekend at CNC, so the biathlon trails will be closed to the public today. Limited terrain will be available to the public for skiing. I see from the CNC webcam the snowguns are going full blast. With colder temperatures in the forecast, CNC should be able to make a lot of snow in the next 7 days.
