January 19, 2022 update

Skiing is over at Shaganappi unless we receive significant snow with low to no wind.


The Chinook temperatures combined with the associated winds have sublimated the snow from most of the ski trails, leaving a very thin layer of pockmarked ice, or grass, rocks, or asphalt.


Walking is not recommended due to the icy surfaces.


The skiff of snow that Calgary did receive with the last storm cycle did not stay on the ski trails because of the winds.


Some winters, there's no sense in fighting Mother Nature. Fingers crossed for 15 to 30 cm of snow in a storm cycle with low winds, otherwise skiing is over until we (hopefully) receive the early March snow that typically hits Calgary.
