Bill Milne and Wedge

The Bill Milne trail and Wedge Connector are in the process of being trackset this evening. If skiing the Bill Milne trail, you now have a new parking lot…

Due to overflowing parking lots on the weekends Kovach Ponds parking lot has been plowed out to allow for more parking space. Trail users accessing Bill Milne Trail from the Ribbon Creek side are asked to park in Kovach Pond. This parking lot will also serve as an overflow for Troll Falls.

The Kananaskis golf course also has parking for about 25 vehicles adjacent to the Bill Milne trail. 

After the strong winds and warm weather of the past week, it won’t be so easy to just show up and expect good conditions. Recently groomed trails will generally have the best conditions. 

Even on recently groomed trails you may still encounter tree debris but it will usually be embedded and not much of an issue. 

For up-to-date, first-hand accounts of trail conditions, check the Trip Reports. So far today, we’ve had reports from the following trails/areas…

  • Peter Lougheed Provincial Park (3)
  • Cascade Valley (2)
  • Castle Lookout to Baker Creek
  • Canmore Nordic Centre
  • Kananaskis Village
  • Mt Shark – “Pretty much perfect conditions”

If you’re sking between Lake Louise and Castle Junction, expect to see occasional loppet participants on the trail.
