Today, I received another grooming report from the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise Trail Team. Here are the significant changes from yesterday's report:

Fairview Loop (#2): Double trackset, Dec. 22. Fair, early season like condition. Still lots of rocks and stumps lurking and twigs everywhere. Our equipment was hitting quite a few hazards and the tracksetting pan dragged across the ground on more than one occasion. Don't use your race skis and exercise caution!

I received an update regarding the upper Lake Louise trails from Berke McClintock tonight:

Fairview Loop (#2): Leveled and skier set, Dec. 7. Poor condition with rocks and stumps lingering just under the snow and in a lot of cases above it. Cannot drag equipment safely until more snow covers the hazards. It is skiable but a fall wouldn’t be fun, and your skis might take some damage. Use caution.

Shoreline (#4): Double trackset, Dec. 17. Fair condition, like the Fairview there are A LOT of rocks just under the snowpack that our equipment was constantly hitting. The drainage located 400m from the North entrance (Chateau side) is rough and covered in branches to allow snow to accumulate instead of melt, go slow or walk here. Your skis will take some damage if you are not careful.

Lake Trail (#4): Double trackset with a separate walking path, Dec. 17. Good condition, expect some slush to form with the recent snow.

Upper Telemark and Peyto Trails (#5&#7): Leveled and skier set, Dec. 15. Like the Fairview it is rough with rocks and stumps lurking with lots of twigs. Use caution on the long downhills.
