Out skiing today on the Syncline Trails and though they definitely could use more snow, it’s still worth a ski. Bare in spots, where there’s a full canopy of tree branches overhead. Fast on the downhill. And there’s been a big troop of snowshoers out and about.
I was down in Waterton Park on Sunday, up the Akamina Parkway and drove as far as the road is open, then skied into Wall Lake. Much better snow there as you would imagine, avalanche conditions are generally favourable, but check it out at avalanche.ca before you go; conditions can change. I talked to a friend who had been out on Forum Ridge (on the way to Wall Lake) a few days earlier and he said the snow was crusty.
