Peter Lougheed Provincial Park

Trackset last night: Elk Pass(partial), Hydroline, Lookout, Tyrwhitt. 

“Heavy flurries rolled into the park late Monday evening, with approximately 5 cm of snow (and counting) accumulated at the Elk Pass trailhead by the time grooming finished around midnight. With no signs of letting up, expect ALL trails to be covered with this fresh snow. Very strong winds brought with the storm will cause significant drifting in some places, and likely will be dropping a lot of tree debris as well as many large (especially at higher elevations) tree bombs.”

The temperature at the Lower Lake at 8 a.m. is -10°C. 

West Bragg Creek

WBC received a few cm of snow overnight and grooming has started. It shows Telephone Loop is being groomed this morning. Check Nordic Pulse for details. The temperature at the trailhead is -9°C.
