Nordic Pulse

Thanks to the generous support of the cross-country ski community and Nordiq Alberta, the following Nordic Pulse trail reports are being tracked for the 2021/22 ski season.

During the 2020/21 winter season, funds from the sale of parking passes and public donations enabled Nordiq Alberta to reimburse Alberta Environment and Parks for the cost of ski trail grooming and to obtain a modest fund to sustain and enhance local ski trails. This fund was accessed to provide Nordic Pulse trails reports for areas listed below for two years.

Nordiq Alberta is a not for profit organization promoting and improving cross country skiing in Alberta. It also supports developing athletes on the Alberta Ski Team to represent Canada at international competitions. So that we can continue to advocate for an improved skier experience, any donations would be greatly appreciated. Please contact the Nordiq Alberta office [email protected]

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.

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.

It's been another stellar season of skiing in WBC!

Thanks to everyone for your kind words for the groomers. It was great fun seeing all the happy faces gliding and slip sliding around the trails system this winter. 
We hope to see everyone again next year.

Have a great spring and summer!
