With strong winds blowing debris on the trails, we’ll welcome some fresh snow. Perhaps more trails in Lake Louise will be groomed, maybe even Banff. PLPP will hopefully receive some of this and Elk Pass can get a refresher grooming.

The posting from CNC adds insult to injury.
For two weeks I’ve waited for the opening day (18 NOV),
reading daily their web page which stated the Banff trail
is closed due to snowmaking. So I set out on opening day
and found no track to the Meadows, thin cover which
near as I could tell was largely natural snow, very little
if any machine snow. Even skaters were having trouble
on the barely covered Banff Trail.
