The Ribbon Creek Live Grooming report indicates that Bill Milne, Wedge Connector, Troll Falls and Hay Meadow were groomed yesterday(Nov 6).
Remarks from the trail report:
Nov 7 A nice early season snowfall has blanketed most of the area with 10 to 30cm of new snow. Trails groomed prior to Nov 3 have about 4cm of new snow over a groomed base. Caution is advised on all lower trails due to a thin base and lots of early season hazards.
Bill Milne Bill Milne was roller packed on Nov 6. The base is still very thin expect to hit pavement with pole tips. Wedge connector is roller packed with good snow coverage,
Note: Skogan Pass is trackset above the High Level jct to the top of the Pass. Skogan Loop is also trackset both are in very good early season condition. Skogan Pass Trail is very thin below Ruthies Jct caution is advised.
West Bragg Creek
Update from WBCTA Groomer Jeff:
Although the GBCTA is still waiting for permission to resume its activities in West Bragg, our counterparts at Parks have been gracious in roller packing a number of our trails for us. They include but are not limited to Iron Springs, Sundog, Elbow, and Crystal Line. Base is thin and natural hazards exist but lots of people are enjoying the snow with rock skis. Have fun out there and hope to see you on the trails soon!

Confederation Golf Course parking
If you go to Confed and encounter locked gates(pictured above), don’t despair. As you can see in the photo, there’s a wide enough gap to allow skiers to pass through on foot. Parking is available on the street just outside the gates and fence. Don’t park on the north side of Collingwood Dr because it is restricted to residents and is signed accordingly. The location of Confederation Golf Course is 19 St NW and Collingwood Dr.
Update Nov 8: The parking lot will not be open to vehicles ’til further notice. For further details, read the comment from Foothills Nordic Ski Club predsident MichelleD below.
