Report at 20-Feb, 10:57AM MST

Feb 18th: Some very light flurries fell overnight on Sunday with just a skiff of fresh snow having accumulated on the earliest grooming as of 3AM, with no snow falling at that time. Periodic snowfall over the last 2 weeks, as well as some extra shovelling, has improved the base considerably in PLPP, and most early season hazards are now covered. There are still some thin spots (mostly under trees) and exposed brush possible on some of the lower elevation trails in the north and middle areas of the trail system, and these trails have a thinner base than usual for this time of year with some bumps and off camber surfaces existing in places. While the lower elevation trails have experienced below normal snow accumulation so far this season, in contrast, the south end and high elevation trails have a good base and the natural hazards are covered.

On Pocaterra, there are still a couple of thin spots and uneven surfaces between Pocaterra Hut and Lynx junction. Come Along still has some thin spots under a few trees, and it was not fully trackset. Packers is much improved with just a few bumpy spots and a bit of exposed brush. Lower Lake Group trail still has some bumps, and lots of exposed brush. Boulton Creek was groomed only on February 12th (unable to set track in cold temps). Use extra caution on hills and fast turns for hazards such as uneven and rough tread. The base remains a little thin on Moraine, and tread surface may be uneven in places. The early season hazards are now covered on Lookout, but extra caution is always advised when descending, especially the steep south side, and be aware that any of the sharp corners may contain uneven surfaces. Note: Fat biking is not permitted on this trail system.
