A wind warning has been issued for Lake Louise, PLPP, Kananaskis, Canmore and Banff. Heavy snow is predicted tonight for higher elevations, and rain/snow at lower elevations.
Peter Lougheed Provincial Park
The usual Saturday night schedule of Whiskey Jack, Upper Pocaterra, Lower Lake, and Packers was completed.
The trail report contains these remarks…
“A few very light flurries moved in to the Park just before midnight on Saturday, with barely a trace of snow by the end of the grooming shift. In the early hours of Sunday morning, very light snow was falling in the Boulton Creek Parking Lot, under a partly cloudy sky. At that time, there was just a trace of snow on Friday night’s grooming, and all other trails had 1 to 3cm’s of snow on top of the last grooming. Strong winds have been causing some drifting in places, as well as dropping numerous and large (especially at higher elevations) tree bombs.”
On the Alberta Parks website, Packers does not show up when you do a specific Feb 20 search but it shows up on the general report, and on Nordic Pulse.
West Bragg Creek
A few of the core trails were trackset early this morning and you can see them on WBC Nordic Pulse.
Pipestone trails were trackset on Saturday.
Shaganappi golf course
“All trails were groomed on this beautiful moonlit Saturday evening. The Chinook wind is forecasted to be persistent tonight, so expect drifting on the trails and especially in the track setting. It might just be a case of see if you can even find the track setting on some stretches of trail!”
Confederation golf course
Yellow and Purple were groomed and trackset.
I finally made it to the SkierBob front page photo! Small correction on the photo credit: The photo was provided by me, but not taken by me. I don’t know who took the photo.
Better send five copies to your mother.
I’ll only do that if the photo ends up on the cover of Rolling Stone!
Mikester also congrats on the front page photo but dude remember what goes on the world wide web is there for eternity and with those outfits you & your homies are sporting just sayin oh my goodness
Why doesn’t Yoho answer any of their emails Mike? Maybe because I’m not a member? Every year I’ve heard about Woodies AFTER it’s all over.
Gord, I assume you’re talking about the Kicking Horse Ski Club (KHSC). I’m not a member either and can’t comment on why they haven’t answered your emails. Bob posted a notice about it on January 31 with a link to the info sheet on how to enter – http://skierbob.ca/2021/01/virtual-yoho-challenge-is-on/.
I downloaded the info sheet – https://www.khsc.ca/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/2021-Virtual-Yoho-Nordic-Challenge.pdf, I emailed my registration info (step 1) and made my donation (step 2), and got a reply from KHSC the next day. The good news is that it’s NOT ALL OVER. The last day is Feb 24!
