With the quick drop in temperatures yesterday afternoon and overnight, yesterdays wet snow became icy and hard. We were only able to use the snowcat on the Capilano side of 50 Street, so the best conditions are found on the Capilano loops. Overall, expect variable conditions depending on how slushy the snow was yesterday. Generally icy, hard, fast conditions.
As of last night:
Capilano: groomed for skate and classical. Classical tracks have an icy bottom, which is getting the light snowfall this morning, and is shallow in places.
Goldbar: skate lanes dragged on all loops with existing classical tracks in place. Conditions variable – expect hard/fast conditions with icy patches. Use caution.
Goldstick and Southloop: not groomed – icy conditions. Not recommended.
Happy trails from your Edmonton Nordic Grooming Team
