Update: Now that I’ve finished shovelling my driveway, I’ve adjusted my snowfall amount to 8-10 cm! Much more than the 1-2 cm predicted by the weather forecasts. With cooler temperatures and new grooming this week, it looks like we’ll be able to enjoy some good skiing.
Caution: With the rain, freezing temperatures, and snow cover, please be careful in the parking lots. I expect they’ll be like skating rinks.
“Well, the rain turned to snow last night so groomers are out this morning setting track for lucky skiers., It looks like a beauty day!” The WBC Live Grooming Report has all the details.
Check the WBC weather station for the latest temperature.
Tracksetting occurred in PLPP last night. Pocaterra trail was trackset in its entirety(10.5K) along with Rolly Road, Come-Along and Lynx. Read the Live Grooming Report for more details.
The Weather Network indicates a temperature of -16°C in PLPP this morning which agrees with the Mud Lake thermometer. A high of -6 is expected with sunny skies. The PLPP maintenance compound thermometer reads -15 at 9 a.m.
At the Canmore Nordic Centre, some grooming and limited tracksetting occurred. Again, check the Live Grooming Report.
Nakiska is showing overnight snowfall of 17 cm. I hope the Ribbon Creek trails received some of that.
Ski Louise received 15 cm of snow last night.
Norquay(Banff) received 9 cm.
When I was checking Bow Valley Road Conditions on Facebook yesterday, I saw a photo which someone posted from Ski Louise. I wonder how many runs a skier could expect to have, considering that line-up.
