December 10, 2019
Note: The danger trees have now been removed from Mid Loop Crossing and Rossland Paulson trails.
Snow conditions and quality have improved considerably since the last small snow cycle and the addition of colder air.
Our grooming apprentice Anna Boland’s skills have blossomed in this her second year at it with us. Something major has clicked for Anna, and her track-setting has just gone next level.
Viewed at left, a small sample of her work on-trail today. We’re super stoked about this season and the track-setting quality we’ll have (disclaimer: not all snow conditions are equal, it’s often difficult to achieve this high quality, but it will be our challenge to reach for this).
Today we also staked out the white-out zones on Glenmerry road, brushed out that nasty part of Norwegian between GM road and GM shelter, and also ran some initial bare tracks through Norwegian to Gloryview Jct. Its a start, but we’re afraid tracks are a snowfall or two off yet.
Fans of Winterberry, we snuck in a little surprise if you make the ‘Connection’ (nudge, nudge, wink, wink), but don’t look for it on the report, it’s unofficial.
Refer to the report below for the most recent trail grooming / track-setting.
Snow is on the way this week.
Check back soon for changing conditions,
