Grooming is finished for the season  but there is still lots of snow on all trails so you can ski or snowshoe all trails for awhile yet.  

Thanks to the grooming team for giving us a great ski season.

Have a great summer.

Blue and Green trails were groomed for skating on Wednesday night.  As the temperature drastically increases on Friday this will likely be the last grooming of the season.  The snow will not last long at 10C with the sun being quite strong now.  Thanks for a great season.  If you enjoyed skiing at Confed this year please consider going to Foothillsnordic.ca to donate.

That new skiff of snow on the ground has made it skiable again at Shaganappi - with the caveat or recommendation that people use rock skis if they have them. Most of the trail system was roller groomed Friday evening by one volunteer with the exception of the lower Advanced Loop and Westgate corner (SW Corner of the golf course along the asphalt cart path) More exposed sections of trail such as the escarpment facing North are wind scoured, and keep in mind there is very thin snow cover over grass, tree roots, rocks, and both shale and asphalt cart paths. The driving range, surprisingly, has fairly good wind-deposited coverage, as do a lot of the trail sections running along fairways on the grass. Beware of the shallow snowpack and be very cautious of the rock and asphalt cart paths beneath the snow. When in doubt, poke the ground with a ski pole to see what the surface is underneath. Keep your fingers crossed for more snow in the next few days, as the typical March snow storm systems seem to be paying Calgary a surprise visit! Total volunteer hours on the snow: 3

Spruce Coulee Trail, Highline Trail, and Ridgetop Trail were all packed and groomed today.  No tracksetting was completed.  Conditions are good with 100% coverage but there are still a few thin spots throughout.  High winds today will result in drifting over of the trails in open areas.

Please use caution as natural hazards exist on all trails.

Unfortunately, we have had to suspend grooming here on the Goldbar/Goldstick/Capilano Nordic Trails, unless we get an unexpected huge dump of snow.  Stay tuned here for updates on grooming if we do get a critical mass of fresh snow to see whether it was groomable or not. 

Thanks!

Mt Shark

Spray Lakes, Alberta
Apr 15, 2022

Cold temperatures on Thursday allowed one more double grooming shift at Shark, where a few cm's of new snow from the past week was mixed in to the base. A few light flurries fell during the grooming amounting to barely a trace of new snow, and at 5:30AM tiny flakes of light snow were falling and the temperature was well in to the negative double digits.  Scheduled grooming has now concluded at Mt Shark for the season. There are a few thin spots in sun exposed areas, but generally the base is still good. The freeze thaw cycle will likely return in the coming days, leaving trails icy trails in the morning, softening later in the day as the temperature rises.

Sunday night was partly cloudy with no new snow falling during the grooming. Use caution in sun affected areas as some brush and debris is starting to become exposed, as well as some icy sections, and bare spots at the very north end of the system.  Be bear aware as tracks have been seen on the ski trails.  Scheduled grooming has now concluded for the season.  Visit the Peter Lougheed trail report for details regarding general conditions and specific trails by clicking the computer desktop icon top right.

We attempted grooming but it was too warm. With a layer of wet new snow, our groomers just plowed instead of packed it down. We will be experiencing warm weather for the next several days. We will have to wait until it cools down before we can try again.
