Apr 22nd: Spring conditions now exist in PLPP, with the trend of temperatures above the freezing mark during the day and dipping below zero at night; expect the ski trails to be very firm and fast early in the morning, and softening as temperatures rise during the day, with the least icy conditions generally to be found on fresh grooming. After a couple of cm's of snow during the day on Saturday, a little more at higher elevations, a few light flurries fell Saturday overnight- expect a trace of snow on most of the fresh grooming.
The campground roads have now been plowed, so watch for 2 new road crossings each across Wheeler and Whiskey Jack (one at the bottom of the hill on Whiskey Jack at Morraine junction), as well, the sections of Amos and Morraine through the campgrounds are now plowed down to pavement. There is still a tremendous snow base in the south end of the Park and at higher elevations, but over the next week some bare spots will likely open up on the trails in the north end. Some bears are now awake- be bear aware and ski in groups and/or carry bear spray. There will be no grooming during the upcoming week, but barring any unforeseen circumstances, there will be one more weekend of grooming at the end of April. Note: Fat biking is not permitted on this trail system.
