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.

“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!”

Yellow and Purple were groomed and trackset.

  1. 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.
