If you wish to see the spectacular sight of Shadow Lake and Mt Ball pictured above, read Chuck’s trip report from yesterday. The Trip Reports page will give you a good overview of the conditions on most ski trails.
Mt Shark trails were groomed and trackset last night with the exception of the following:
“The steep ups and downs of the first 2 km’s of the Yellow 10km loop (and the Red 5) generally has the thinnest base, and it was not groomed this week. The full Watridge Lake trail was groomed and trackset, with the exception of the spur down to the lake itself, where it is quite thin and windblown
There’s quite a discrepancy in temperatures this morning. Mud Lake weather station which is just a few K from Mt Shark shows -11°C. Boulton Creek in PLPP is reporting -1 on the Weather Network. Windy.com predicts a high of -4 at Mt Shark and PLPP.
At Canmore Nordic Centre, the natural snow on Banff trail, Bow and Meadowview have been groomed and some tracksetting occurred. Check the CNC Trail Report for details. The CNC weather station shows a temperature of -5.
There is no update shown on the Banff trail report(yet), but Friday is the regularly scheduled grooming of Castle Lookout to Baker Creek and Castle Junction to Castle Lookout. I hope someone can give us a report later today on the condition of the trails.
At 7:20 a.m. the Banff/Lake Louise trail report shows no tracksetting in Lake Louise yesterday but that could be updated later today.
Update Jan 12 @ 9:10 a.m: Banff/Lake Louise trail report shows the following new tracksetting: Jan. 12 – Moraine Lk Rd, and Jan. 11 – Upper Telemark and Peyto
