My first impression coming from Calgary was, where’s all the snow?
I arrived early, by 9:30, and was the third car in the Elk Pass parking lot. When I returned the lot was mostly full.
Up Elk Pass, skier set track, packed underneath. Solid snow cover.
Tyrwhitt, skier set track, a bit rough. Lots of bush tops poking out of the snow. I don’t know if they are waiting for more snow before setting tracks.
Whiskey Jack: trackset, hard packed and fast.
Moraine, thin snow but good enough coverage with a shallow trackset.
Fox Creek, thin, trackset, a few roots and rocks showing through
The wind was picking up and hopefully it won’t blow too much onto the tracks. There was already some tree bits on Moraine and Fox Creek.
