I received this email and these photos from Les…
We snowshoed up to Helen Lake on Saturday. 8” of snow in the parking lot, soon changed to 1.5 feet on the trail and 3 feet the last 1.5 kms to the lake. What a day.
On another note, I wanted to contact you about “access to Prov of Alberta” weather stations. About 3 years ago I found out we had 5 or 6 brand new weather stations down the Spray Lake Road. I contacted Alberta Parks and they said they are having trouble persuading others to open up the links for the public to see the weather stations data. I contacted them last winter and the same story. It would be great to have them listed like the Banff stations are listed on avalanche.ca.
As you know, so many times we leave Canmore thinking PLPP weather is – 12 deg, only to find it a cool –22 deg C.
Thoughts on how to proceed to get access to this weather stations data?
