Grooming update: Daily grooming occurring on Banff Trail to the meadow, Frozen Thunder trails, Biathlon Stadium, XC Stadium, Penalty loop and Olympic.

Snowmaking update: The team is now working on Lynx and surrounding Biathlon trails.  Please take caution when using these areas as snowmaking crews are travelling on trails with snowmaking equipment. Banff Loop and the Bow tear drop will be pushed & groomed next.

Roller packing: The snow from 4 December was roller packed on most natural snow trails on 5 & 6 December. Conditions vary from poor to fair on these trails. 

Note: The grooming team are piloting the live grooming software again this season - click the 'Live Grooming Report' link at the top of the page to see updates. There are currently some minor discrepancies visible on the live grooming report due to the way in which the trails have been set up as segments in the mapping software. When full trails are open and being groomed this should be mitigated. Refer to both trail reports for accurate information.

Event Notice - Please visit the CNC Event Page for a detailed schedule of events and trail closures. 

Be Wildlife aware - Make noise while out on the trails. Highly recommend you carry bear spray. Stay safe and keep the wildlife safe! Bear sightings can be reported to the front desk in the Day-lodge, or called in to KES at 403-591-7755.
