If you were thinking of skiing at the Canmore Nordic centre this weekend, reconsider. I received this notice from Jim, president of the Canmore Nordic Ski Club:
We have approximately 500 racers registered for Alberta Cup 1 and 2 at Canmore Nordic Centre Saturday and Sunday. There is not going to be any public snow nor peace and quiet. Might let everyone know will be a good weekend to hit up Lake Louise or Elk Pass.
Lots of room on the Fat Bike Trails though!!!
Nice sense of humour there! The CNC trail report indicates that Frozen Thunder will be closed Dec 1 – 3 which also includes Friday. Without Frozen Thunder, there’s limited terrain for skiing. If they can make snow tonight, they might have a few hundred metres open on Banff trail. The natural snow trails are too icy after last weekend meltdown and rain.
I have an update from the Great Divide at Lake Louise coming later tonight. It qualified as a “best day.” It was amazing. I have 149 pictures to go through so give me some time. Here are a couple teasers:
Hey, the skiers on the left side in the first teaser photo are Claire G and Jeff G (me). Who knew ?!!! A great ski indeed. Thanks to everyone who has been submitting trip reports – so helpful.
