Conditions on the Syncline X-C trails aren't particularly glowing: they are fast and slippery (and I expect snow levels diminished from my last report a week ago).
On the other hand, in Waterton National Park, news that they've been packing the trail from Little Prairie to Cameron Lake and the road up to Little Prairie will open Saturday, November 30.

About 8" of snow in Beaver Mines yesterday, so we called out the packer and all the Syncline X-C trails were packed today, deadfall cleared away and they're ready for your skis to whisper by or your snowshoes to tramp on through.
Don't forget the trail map available on the post of January, 2013.

We might be pushing the season a bit, but we machine-packed the Syncline trails yesterday - that's on top of two snowfalls over the previous 10 or so days. Skiers have already been out and returned with positive reports. (Sadly, I hear, today it rained a bit.) The packing follows two days of clearing the trails of deadfall, mowing down the brush with our new tow-along brusher and fixing up the signage (though more needs to be done). Have fun.
