We’re all getting impatient with this slow start to the ski season in Kananaskis Country. There are small amounts of snow in the forecast for later this week. Sometimes those small amounts can be
I feel blessed to have been able to ski the Tyrwhitt loop one more time on surprisingly good conditions. After seeing this morning’s Live Grooming Report, I couldn’t resist.
I thought 10:30 a.m. was early, but it wasn’t early enough. In fact, I don’t know if it even froze last night.
I hadn’t skied Lodgepole and Braille yet this winter, so when I saw they were groomed last night, I headed there today.
-Nola and Geoff on Tyrwhitt. – I was on the trail at 10:30 this morning and had lovely cold snow
You’ve read the enthusiastic Trip Reports. It was indeed a terrific day on the south trails in PLPP. I might still be out there if I hadn’t run out of water.
You can ski in daylight ’til well after 8 pm now, so my updates will be getting even later! I was thrilled to see all the tracksetting that was done in PLPP last night.
There’s already up to 10 cm of fresh snow over last night’s tracksetting on Elk Pass. The snow depth is variable and to my surprise,
–Althea and Nicole load up on cookies at the Boulton feeding station- The Kananaskis Ski Marathon, more affectionately known as the Great Cookie Race, took place
The Cookie Race takes place tomorrow(Saturday) in PLPP, starting at Pocaterra hut. Some of the race trails were trackset overnight including Elk Pass and Tyrwhitt which I skied on today.
We may not have all our usual places to ski available to us right now, but we’ve still got some pretty good choices.
Not only did I see a fat biker, but I also have a good snowshoe story to tell you(later). The last I heard, fat bikes weren’t allowed on the groomed ski trails.
I saw on the Live Grooming Report that Fox Creek and Moraine had been trackset recently, so that was like an invitation to ski the Tyrwhitt loop
Chip, Ray and Peter cajoled me into getting an early start, and we were on Whiskey jack by 10:15 a.m.
Snowshoers have their own dedicated trail to the top of Elk pass, yet they choose to use the ski trail, which lessens the enjoyment and can even create
I’ll vote for the south/middle trails in PLPP, but it sounds like Lake Louise and Pipestone would be in the running. I had a 27K day with excellent conditions
As we were skiing along Elk pass, Georgina pointed out a feature which I had never noticed before: the hugging tree. I’ve posted the photo.
-The Bill Milne trail in Kananaskis- With the excellent conditions this winter, the Bill Milne trail in Kananaskis has been discovered by many classic and skate skiers
-Juliana, Tom and Mark at the Wheeler – Amos(south) junction- No need for a long story about today’s skiing. Everything is perfect on the trails
How could I pass up a trip to the Kananaskis fire lookout when it is freshly groomed? To repeat a well-used phrase this winter, conditions are as good as I’ve ever seen them.
