It’s amazing to hear the differing viewpoints on West Bragg creek ski trail conditions. I haven’t been there, so I have no first-hand knowledge. All three comments are basically saying the same thing, albeit with much different approaches.
Olaf(Dec 28): “AVOID Bragg Creek. . .despite skierbob saying it’s skiable, it’s not. I’ve biked in deeper snow on multiple occasions. Heck, there were fresh bike tracks on Ranger Summit, so that should prove my point. A sample of what a good chunk of the trails looked like in this photo. And if it wasn’t grass it was rocks, sticks, bushes and dirt.”
Alan(Dec 28): “Skied Bragg Creek today. I went Crystal Line, Moose Connector and Moose Loop before returning. These trails were freshly tracked and snow conditions were good. The snow cover is a bit thin in places where grass and dirt are occasionaly showing in the tracks. Steeper down hill sections require control and caution due to occasional rocks. Great day enjoyed myself immensely.”
Jay(Dec 26): “All trails at West Bragg Creek have been track set. Skied most of them this morning. They are ok with some bare spots.”
It’s good to have these comments so that readers are aware of the conditions. It would appear that the deciding factor on whether you enjoy skiing at West Bragg right now depends on your attitude. For some people, the cup is half full, and for others it’s half-empty. Thanks for all the comments!
