There’s excitement in the air in anticipation of the upcoming fun this weekend with two prominent races on the agenda. The Cookie Race on Saturday followed by the Lake Louise Loppet on Sunday. The weather forecasts are looking great with minus-single-digit highs.
The Kananaskis Ski Marathon, more affectionately referred to asthe Cookie Race, registration deadline is Wednesday Feb 26 at 11:59 pm.
Changes to the Lake Louise Loppet
The Lake Louise Loppet deadline is also Feb 26 at 11:59 pm. Take note, there is no registration on the morning of the race as in past years. There is also a course change. 20K racers will ski the Telemark loop twice and not go on Fairview at all.
The Ribbon Creek snowcat is back in operation and the Kananaskis Village trails were trackset yesterday. The Bill Milne, Evan-Thomas, and Wedge Connector are in the process of being groomed as I write this at 9 a.m.
In PLPP, Blueberry Hill, Hydroline, Patterson and the first 2k of Elk Pass were groomed last night. The grooming schedule will be altered a bit due to the upcoming race on Saturday. Snow shovellers will be out on Boulton Creek today.
Grooming in Lake Louise yesterday included the Lake, Forest, Lower Telemark, and Great Divide.
Shaganappi golf course was groomed last night. Check the Groomer’s Reports for details.
