PLPP: Last night’s tracksetting included Pocaterra from the hut to Packers, Lynx, Rolly Road and Come-Along.
“Saturday night’s grooming took place under a mainly cloudy sky, with very light snow falling on and off during the night, and the temperature hovering 2 to 3 degrees below freezing. Between just over 1 and about 3cm’s of snow was mixed in to the icy base. At 5AM at Pocaterra Hut, it was snowing very lightly, with not much more than a trace of snow having fallen during the grooming. Since Friday night, between almost 2cm (at the very north end) and about 7 cm’s (at higher elevations) of new snow had fallen, possibly a little more in the very south end. The base is getting very thin in a few places in the north end, particularly on a number of spots on Come Along.”
At Lake Louise, the Chateau grooming team were busy tracksetting yesterday on Upper Telemark, Peyto, and Lake Louise shoreline. Parks Canada trackset Moraine Lake road and Tramline.
Canmore Nordic Centre tracksetting last night included the man-made snow on Banff Loop and Bow. Coal Cut was also trackset.
Weather forecasts are calling for a significant snowfall at higher elevations in the mountains on Monday, followed by cooler temperatures.
