It was cold in PLPP today which means the snow is still in excellent condition. It was -10 at the Elk Pass parking lot at 2 pm with a bitterly cold wind so I didn’t linger.
-Tom and Wendy heading south on Pocaterra from the Packers junction- I took advantage of the Upper Pocaterra access trail and skied on some very nice grooming
For those who are new around here, PLPP = Peter Lougheed Provincial Park in Kananaskis Country. There’s about 8-10 cm of snow on Elk Pass. As you can see
Thanks to Keith for sending in these photos and the report:
-Breanna on Packers- I couldn’t have asked for a nicer day to end a wonderful ski season. Skiing on cold snow with beautiful tracksetting and later seeing so many of the blog “regulars” at the hut.
I waited for the perfect day to finally ski up to the Kananaskis Fire Lookout this season. The snow is so amazing
Conditions don’t get any better than they were on last night’s tracksetting. The only complaint that I can make about today is that we ran out of cookies.
Conditions on the new tracksetting were spectacular. Today’s skiing was as close to perfection as you’ll ever find, and everyone I met was echoing those
Spring officially starts tomorrow(Tues Mar 20) at 10:15 a.m. but you wouldn’t know it if you were in PLPP today. There was 5-10 cm of new snow
The advice from Heather to go early is appropriate at this time of year. The high angle of the sun wreaks havoc on the trails by early afternoon.
