Thanks for all the trip reports this weekend. It was wonderful that with three days of skiing, we’ve had reasonably good conditions for all of them.
Some fresh snow and cooler weather has made for great conditions at West Bragg Creek. Tanya was there today, and tells all about it(I wonder if it looked anything like the pictures I’ve included here):
“Spent the day at West Bragg today, Monday, skiing the Sun dog loop with Elbow/Iron Springs loop. If you are a xc purist that likes powder and hates corduroy, you need to get out there asap!
It was the best skiing I’ve had all year anywhere! There is plenty of coverage with the exception of the meadow on the Iron Springs trail that has grass and rocks poking through (the rest of the trail is fine). The trails are skier-tracked with fresh powder in abundance on all trails. If you want the best powder, you’ll find the Elbow Trail less tracked than some of the closer trails and very fluffy. Skiing is great for beginners in West Bragg right now too because the fresh snow is making the hills very gentle. Hardly had to snow plow down any of them.”
