Dec 20, 2020: Cascade Valley in Banff National Park has been groomed and trackset to the 6K bridge. Thin snow cover over uneven surface. More snow is needed to cover rocks, roots and creeks.
Winter storm warnings have been issued for most of the SkierBob domain for tomorrow(Monday). On the first day of winter, it’s only fitting that we have a significant snowfall.
“Accumulations may even reach 30-50 cm in higher elevations of the foothills. Winter storm watches are in effect for southern Alberta. Difficult travel is likely in the hardest-hit areas. Snowfall will begin to move into southern Alberta by midday Monday.”
As I’ve already cautioned, these major storms preceeded by strong winds could bring down a lot of trees on the trails. It may take some time to clear the fallen trees and get the snow packed. Hopefully we’ll have a nice selection of trails to ski by Christmas.
