It didn’t take the Ribbon Creek crew very long to start grooming the fresh snow. The Skogan Pass trails are being groomed tonight. You can follow the snowcat’s progress on Skitrails.info. I’m not sure who’s in the ‘cat, but he’s just finished Sunburst and High Level as I write this at 6:30 pm.
Update 7:16 pm Just received this note fron Tracksetter Jeff:
“The new snow starts at the Marmot gate on Skogan. I’m afraid below that it is rain soaked snow which will soon be ice. We will do our best to at least make it safe once it cools off.”
Wayback Wednesday: Marmot Basin/Gate is the trail which branches off Skogan near the top of the Screamer. This is the last blog post I wrote about Marmot Basin trail before it was destroyed in the 2013 floods. Loved that trail.
Thanks for the trip reports. We don’t get as many on a day like today, but the ones we get are more valuable than ever. It seems like most places had wet snow, although Jeff G said the snow was drier after about 2K on Redearth Creek.
When I looked at the West Bragg Creek webcam at 5:20 pm, it didn’t look like they received much snow. It’ll take some groomer magic to fix the horse damage with only 1 cm of new snow.
Helen Read brought my attention to this unusual ski trail report from Parks Canada regarding Lower Telemark at Lake Louise. Can you pick out the peculiarities?
