A snowfall warning has been issued for Kananaskis and Canmore. Snow-Forecast.com is predicting 11 cm for PLPP and 8 cm for the Canmore Nordic Centre on Sunday.
The high temperature in PLPP is predicted to be -1°C on Sunday, April 18.
As I write this at 10 pm, the final grooming shift in PLPP has begun. If you venture out on Sunday, the tracksetting will probably be covered with fresh snow.
We’ve enjoyed five solid months of grooming in PLPP(the first tracksetting on Elk Pass was on Nov 16). Last year at this time we didn’t know if there would be groomed trails in PLPP for the 2020-21 season, but this year, all signs indicate that grooming will be back for next season. It’s a relief to not have to worry about that situation over the summer.
Thanks to tracksetters James, Jody and Dylan for the excellent tracksetting in PLPP this winter. Looking forward to seeing you next season.
With the new snow, I hope we see a few more trip reports in the coming week. Thanks to Mike W and Dave for today’s reports from PLPP and Lake Louise.
I don’t know when the Canmore Nordic Centre will end grooming, but with this new snow, I expect it will continue for a few more days.
