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.

– The Wedge connector is single trackset and groomed with a skating lane – Do you like it relaxed and easy, or hard and fast? Are you a beginner, maybe even

Marmot Basin trail in Kananaskis

Thumbnail image for Marmot Basin trail in Kananaskis

Update July 2013: This trail was washed out in the flood of June 2013 and has not been repaired. It is not skiable.  If you like fast downhills, here’s a trail for you. The brochure describes Marmot basin trail thus…“provides a good run down from the top.” That’s quite the understatement when you consider that I […]

When skiing here, the goal is to not die! Whether it’s from the sheer exhaustion of the relentless climb, or a catastrophic crash on the way down.
