I have received 10 cm of beautiful fresh snow at SkierBob world headquarters in Calgary. 

The snowfall warning is still in effect for Calgary, Bragg Creek, Kananaskis, and Canmore. 

Canmore Nordic Centre:  Snowed all night with a fair wind.  The fresh snow(5-10 cm) has covered some of our grooming from tonight so be prepared to break trail.”

Nakiska(near Ribbon Creek) received 14 cm in the past 24 hours. 

Mud Lake(near Chester Lake trailhead) has received 19 cm since 5 pm yesterday, so you could expect similar amounts at Mt Shark. 

Lake Louise reports 3 cm overnight, 19 cm in the past 24 hours. 

PLPP tracksetting

As of Wednesday morning, approximately 30 to 45cm of snow has fallen on the North end of the park and likely more in the south end at higher elevations. The storm tumbled into the valley at about 17:00hrs, and approximately 10 cm had accumulated by the end of the 1st grooming shift and approximately another 20cm before daylight on the 2nd grooming shift. Prior to tonight’s storm, approximately 10 cm of fresh snow fell overnight on the 31st/1st bringing this weeks total, thus far to 30cm to 45cm, depending on location. Expect this accumulation of powder snow on ALL ungroomed trails and varying amounts on trails groomed overnight on the 2nd/3rd of February.

  • Pocaterra Hut to Packers
  • Come-Along
  • Rolly Road

All trails will have varying amounts of fresh snow on the new grooming. Check the PLPP trail report for more details.
