More snow; more tracksetting

Dec 4, 2019

The Sandy McNabb Live Grooming Report shows most of the trails have been groomed. No indication whether they are trackset.

I had an appointment in Canmore today, and planned to check out the conditions at the nordic centre. I changed my mind when I arrived at CNC and found myself in the middle of a raging blizzard. That was around 2 pm.
