West Bragg Creek Grooming Report from Boomer Groomer:
“A big shout out to volunteer groomers Bill, David, Peter and Jeremy. These fellas spent their Saturday night track setting close to 70km of trail for everyone’s enjoyment.
Get it while you can as temps are shooting skyward on Sunday relatively early in the day.”
Starting later today, we will see above freezing temperatures at West Bragg Creek, Ribbon Creek, Canmore, Banff and Calgary.
The warm weather is predicted to continue for the forseeable future.
The places which have the best snow early in the season are also the places which will continue to have the best conditions now. Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, Lake Louise and possibly Mt Shark will hopefully still have cold, waxable-conditions snow.
New tracksetting on Feb 27/28:
West Bragg Creek: Every trail has been trackset. The temperature at the trailhead at 7 a.m. is -5°C .
Kananaskis Village and Bill Milne trail:
“Kananaskis Village trails and Bill Milne trail from Ribbon Creek to Mt. Kidd RV Park groomed and trackset this evening after 5 to 7 cm new snow. Great conditions.”
Peter Lougheed Provincial Park: Whiskey Jack, Packers, Upper Pocaterra, and Lower Lake.
“A few flakes of snow on Saturday night but no real trace was noticeable on the grooming at the time it was completed. Friday night’s grooming will have 1 to 2 or so cm’s of snow on the surface, and all other trails will have from almost 5cm’s to possibly 10cm’s, depending on location and when they were last groomed.”
