The following update is from Jeff Hughes:
“We’ve had 4 separate snowfalls in the last 7 days, so we’ve had our hands full with grooming and track setting. Approximately 15 cm of snow has accumulated over that time.
Conditions have not been this good in a long time. We have over 50 km of trails that are all groomed and track set with very few thin areas.
Caution is advised on an ice flows at the Moose Connector/West Crystal Line intersection and on a small section of Stairway to Heaven on West Crystal Line.
We will be hosting the Alberta Youth Championships this weekend with over 150 athletes from BC, NWT, AB and the Yukon. Racing will be confined to West and Middle Crystal Line and a portion of East Crystal Line and Bunny.
Grooming has been altered on some trails to accommodate the racing. We are expecting things to be busy this weekend and have arranged to have parking attendants to aid with congestion in the parking lot.
Racing will be taking place on a relatively small portion of our trail system so there should be little disruption to recreational ski activity.
