Update: The CNC trail report indicates “Live Grooming currently not working or updating!” So don’t go by the dates on the Live Grooming site.
Nice to see all the trip reports coming in. It will help me and everyone else decide where to ski tomorrow. Maybe Pipestone?(thanks to Paul and Nancy, we know it was being trackset this afternoon).Goat Creek/Spray River? PLPP? Cascade Valley should be terrific with today’s new tracksetting. Castle Lookout to Baker Creek was also trackset today.
After spending the past three days in Calgary, I got back to Canmore in time to go for a short ski at dusk at the CNC.
The air temperature at 5 pm was -3°C. The main trails(both man-made and natural snow) have been trackset since the recent snowfall and are in reasonably good shape. The tracks are glazed but I had good grip with VR55(0/-3). It looked excellent for skating.
The secondary trails such as Silvertip, Bruin, Coyote, and Freddie’s Flip have 3-4 cm of fresh snow over a crusty base. Still good skiing. I didn’t encounter any hazards but I didn’t ski on Bow trail which I imagine still has some twigs and dirt.
Skied Bow in CNC Tuesday and it was good. No twigs etc… l was surprised.
This comment was submitted yesterday on Facebook from Shelly: “Bow was amazing! Did it earlier today no pine cones or branches or twigs best shape so far this season. Great ski.
Agree with Shelly. Skied Bow twice Friday, best track setting there this season. Meadowview also nicely set.
