Report at 25-Feb, 4:15AM MST

Feb 25th, 2020: Monday brought intermittent flurries throughout the day, ending at about 22:00 hrs. A total of 2 cms fell in the north end of the park, with more falling at higher elevations on the south trails. The grooming schedule has changed slightly to accommodate the upcoming Cookie Race; The 300 metres of Elk Pass between Blueberry and Patterson was trackset on Monday night; Meadow was trackset from the Lodgepole intersection to Wooley on Sunday night. Caution Snow shovellers will be on Boulton Creek Trail on Tuesday during the day.

There has been some intermittent new snow since the rain event a few weeks ago, and conditions are returning to normal, though there is still a percentage of ice content to the base, with more ice in the mix at the north end of the trail system, and at lower elevations. There are also some needles and other tree debris on the trails in some places, and still some "snow bombs" falling, mainly at higher elevations.

Always use extra caution on Lookout, especially on the steep south side. Boulton Creek was groomed only on Feb 5th, however the tread is still somewhat uneven and bumpy. - Comment last updated: Feb-25 12AM
