Nov 5 @ 12 noon: I’ve checked the various forecasts throughout the SkierBob empire, and the predictions are wildly variable. As the storm gets closer, the forecasts should get more accurate.
Coming from the south, there’s an initial blast on Thursday night into Friday starting with rain(hopefully snow at higher elevations). It gets colder, then snow on Saturday night-Sunday. Yet another system from the west moves through on Tuesday.
Lake Louise is not getting very much, but they only need a few cm to refresh the trails. West Bragg Creek and Kananaskis should receive about 10 cm but I expect that could change.
It appears the southeast corner of the province is receiving the most snow with Cypress Hills on tap for about 40 cm.
Moraine Lake road update
The trail report for Lake Louise is now indicating that Moraine Lake road parking lot is closed. Access to MLR will be from the Upper Tramline trailhead which is at the lake parking lot.
