Our amazing volunteer snow farming and grooming teams have been working their magic in what little snow we have left! The grooming we've been able to do for ski programs in Canmore Park has held up over the past week - we'll likely wait until the weather cools down again after Monday until we do … Continue reading Confed/Canmore Park update – January 13, 2019
Probably doesn't need saying, but Confed did not fair well with the Chinook this week. The trails are not skiable until we get more snow. Parts of the driving range are ok, but there are many bare spots and the entrance is quite bare and icy. The parking lot and entrances to the driving range … Continue reading Confed update – January 5, 2019
All of the driving range was groomed and track set last night. The purple and green trails were groomed for skating. The blue trail was groomed for skating, and a classic track was also set. There are still quite a few spots where grass is poking through, especially on the green and purple trails. Coverage … Continue reading Confed grooming update – Dec 31, 2018
Purple, green, and yellow trails were groomed last night - no tracksetting, as there is not enough snow. Please use caution if you ski the blue trail, it has been heavily trampled by folks out to see the Christmas lights. The rest of the trails had some holes from people walking on them as well, … Continue reading Confed grooming update – December 27
Thanks to some work over the last few days by a small but mighty snow farming crew, the Yellow and Purple trails were groomed and partially trackset last night. Sections that have had snow added have great coverage, with others areas being thin in places. Our snow-making crew is looking for some additional volunteers to … Continue reading Confed – some trails groomed – December 19, 2018
The weather outside is frightful... if you're a skier at least! Given the warm weather and lack of new snow in the forecast, our grooming crew will be focusing all efforts on the driving range until we have more snow. The green, blue and orange trails are in poor condition. The purple loop still has … Continue reading Confed grooming update – December 17, 2018
The purple and yellow trails were groomed last night, with one track set in each. Watch for thin spots in the area between the driving range and the pedestrian gate off Constable Road. Volunteers will be out again tonight, shovelling snow on to the trails from adjacent areas to improve/protect the trail snow base. If … Continue reading Confed – east trails groomed – December 11, 2018
The green loop at Confed was groomed this morning, and Canmore Park has been groomed and trackset. We are hoping to open the parking lot soon, please be patient as volunteers finish setting things up for the season. Happy trails!
The blue loop was groomed and trackset this afternoon. The green trail was groomed as well. There are some thin sections on both trails that have grass coming through. Our volunteers run sessions on Wednesday nights to 'farm' snow from nearby ungroomed areas and fill thin patches in, if you're able to help out with … Continue reading Confed – partially groomed/trackset – December 6, 2018
Canmore Park trail and a loop along 19th Street were rolled today! Yellow and purple trails were groomed, and yellow and orange trails were trackset. Tracks are in good condition for the most part, but there are some grassy stretches. Please take care walking through the parking lot - it's icy!!
