Snow on the way

February 2, 2018

Snowfall warnings are in effect for the mountains and from the sounds of the trip reports, it has already started in most of the places where we ski, but nothing yet in Canmore as I write this at 7:30 pm.  It appears that Calgary and West Bragg

Get high on Skogan Pass

December 23, 2016

Update Sat Dec 24 @7:45 a.m: I received 2 cm overnight in Canmore(and another 2 cm is predicted for today). I expect the Ribbon Creek – Skogan Pass trails would have also received at least that much, so I’m wondering if Lower Skogan would now be skiable?

PLPP grooming is underway

December 8, 2016

This is what we have been waiting for! 🙂 🙂 🙂   This Live Grooming Report showed up late this afternoon. There might be more to the story as I see only a portion of Lookout north side was done. With these cold temperatures, equipment problems can be a concern.

Fantastic weekend ahead

March 21, 2014

The new snow combined with cool temperatures will give xc skiers some great conditions wherever grooming has occurred. Jeff is presently tracksetting the Kananaskis village, Ribbon creek, and Skogan pass trails as I write this at 6:15 pm.

Maybe too nice? Now that West Bragg and the two Calgary golf courses are trackset and in nice shape, the weather turns warm. I hope conditions stay good for at least tomorrow. Sunday might be a waxless ski day. We received two encouraging
