Friday night update

-Skiers from the Edmonton Nordic Ski Club were enjoying the conditions on Frozen Thunder-

Frozen Thunder is holding up extremely well considering the warm weather. I checked it mid-afternoon and observed a lot of happy skiers including those pictured above from the Edmonton Nordic Ski Club.

There was a reasonably well-defined classic track which would have been even better earlier in the day. In the parking lot, I noticed a lot of licence plates from Saskatchewan and BC.

If you missed this Facebook update, Anna Elkins updated the status of Moraine Lake Road on Oct 26:

“I skied it on Tuesday and it was melting out fast. There is going to be a hazardous tree assessment on the road this week as well so likely more vehicles driving the road.”

  1. Been seeing lots of blowdown on my jaunts as of late. Might delay some grooming in Kananaskis.

    • Lots of trees across the West Bragg Creek trails also. Volunteers know about the situation so they will be gone when we get skiing. More a concern to the mountain bikers for a while.
