Peter Neumann skied on Frozen Thunder yesterday and provided the above photo and this short but descriptive report:
“Much better than last week, hard packed and fast. Classic with wax very good.” -Peter Neumann
The colder weather makes for simpler and easier waxing on your classic skis.
These cold nights are allowing snowmaking to proceed. Peter observed some snow piles which were ready to be spread out.
Oct 31 is the final day to buy your Canmore Nordic Centre season passes at a 10% discount.
There’s a significant snowfall in the forecast for Sunday/Monday.
Backcountry skiers have been enjoying the powder in the Highwood Pass area:
“Conditions up at pocaterra ridge were (surprisingly) good for October! There was ~15cm of fresh snow on top of a crust. In the alpine, there was minor wind loading- but only under the ridges. Snow coverage was overall quite good, we hit only one rock per lap and some laps even none!”
