Thursday morning update

I’ve received about 4 cm of overnight snow in Calgary. The web cam at West Bragg Creek shows fresh snow.

The mountains don’t appear to have received very much. The Mud Lake weather station in Kananaskis indicates 1 cm, and the Lake Louise ski resort received zero cm overnight, and 3 cm in the past 24 hours. 

Forecasts are predicting 5 cm of snow today/tonight in PLPP. The temperature this morning at the Lower Lake is -6°C with an expected high of -1. 

PLPP overnight tracksetting includes Elk Pass, Blueberry Hill, Patterson, Fox Creek, Moraine. 

“Light snow started to fall within the last half hour of the snowcat grooming finishing up early Thursday morning.  The snow picked up slightly as the equipment was being loaded in the Elk Pass Parking lot, and light snow was falling all the way down the KLT at 3:30AM, under a mainly cloudy sky.  Expect at least a trace of new snow on all trails on Thursday morning.  With the exception of the first 2km’s of Elk Pass, which was groomed about 48 hours earlier, varying amounts of fresh snow were mixed in to the solid base during Wednesday night’s snowcat grooming.  Amounts ranged from about 2cm’s or so on Upper Lake connector to about 8cm’s on parts of Blueberry Hill. Fox Creek and Moraine were trackset on Wednesday night, however there are still some icy areas that require extra caution (mostly hills and sun-worn sections). Boulton Creek was not groomed this week, and will likely have many icy sections, use caution.”
