Good news! The Kicking Horse Ski Club reports that the alluvial fan at Emerald Lake is once again accessible:
You can ski the lake and fan again–just start at the beginning of the CONNECTOR (top of stairs across from Emerald Sports) –go across the small walking bridge(carefully) and up and over the hills and dales(walking and carrying skis is OK) to the EAST BAY and to track set trails on the lake. ENJOY–there will no longer be groomed trails in the AVALANCHE AREA.
Map of the area: Peaceful pond trail map
It looks like the weather’s a little cooler out in Yoho and Lake Louise, so the snow may be in better condition.
Some grooming was completed in PLPP yesterday. I hope someone can give us an update if you are out there today.
The Spray River west side in Banff was trackset yesterday.
