by Bob Truman on March 31, 2019

in Canmore, Kananaskis, PLPP(P Lougheed Park)

Upper Pocaterra

It should be a good day of skiing on the freshly groomed trails. 

Trails groomed last night in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park include 

  • Whiskey Jack
  • Upper Pocaterra
  • Tyrwhitt
  • Kananaskis Fire Lookout
  • Hydroline

Be sure to read Tracksetter Jody’s comments below this post for further information, and the PLPP Live Grooming Report. 

The temperature this morning at Boulton Creek is -4°C with an expected high of +3. Wet snow is in the forecast for this afternoon.

Bear tracks have been spotted on the south end trails in PLPP. 

Canmore Nordic Centre: The man-made snow trails were groomed this morning.

Website problems

Updates which I’ve made since March 28 can no longer be accessed. For example, when you click on the below update “Elk Pass and Fox Creek,” It won’t display.  If you get the same result as I do, you’ll just see a blank screen. The platform I’m using is no longer compatible with the latest security updates from WordPress. I’ll be fixing this situation over the summer.

Getting thin in places anyway. The base is still good at higher elevations in the south end where there is no direct sun exposure. Enjoy what’s left of the season…

Thanks for all your work, Jody. I skied some of the recently groomed trails today, and really enjoyed them; snow was cold in the morning but became very moist in the afternoon. Lookout was pristine, with only a couple of dirty spots at the bottom of the west side.

Make sure to check out the Live Grooming comments, things are getting very thin out there. The sun exposed top of the steep Whiskey Jack Hill is partially bare, and there is a bare spot almost right across the trail in an inappropriate place on the steep side of Lookout; also soon to be at least one bare spot on Trywhitt. Happy Trails…
