Thanks to Groomer Jeff for the photo and report…
“XC ski grooming is well underway in West Bragg. Most of the trail system has been roller packed, and track setting has commenced as you can see from the photo of West Crystal. Conditions should be very good on core trails till it warms up next week. Come and get it!!”
Wow! Thats awesome.
Trails are still listed as multi-use this early in the season aren’t they?
Just prepping for the inevitable discussion on what trails we are reserving for skiing and what trails we can fat bike and snowshoe on…
Any thoughts from the grooming staff on how they would like to see the trails shared?
Thanks for asking K. My rule of thumb is to be aware of what your impact on the trail is, and does it adversely affect other user groups?
For instance, recently groomed trails are very soft and the snow takes at least a couple of hours to set up. If you travel on grooming that has just been laid, take care that you are not leaving ruts that will negatively impact the work that has just been done.
The beauty of snow shoes is that a groomed trail is not required, so the possibilities in West Bragg Creek are endless.
