Overnight grooming

Dec 24, 2020:

Parking lots in Kananaskis were in need of plowing yesterday, but it looks like they are on the job today. MaSid reported this morning that Ribbon Creek parking has been plowed.

“Yellow and Purple trails were groomed and trackset last night. Conditions are excellent!”

It appears that Foothills Nordic is no longer updating their Confed trail reports on the website(last update was Dec 17). They are doing it through Facebook: Confederation Park Nordic.
