      High Rockies - Rummel to Night Club
      Dec 19, 2018 @ 5:00pm
      Dec 19, 2018
      Packed by 3 riders from driftwood to avi closure and back(10km). Excellent snow coverage with a few sugar snow sections where you get bogged down. 2x10 with track over existing snowshoe pack for first 8km. Last 2km 2x4 width track over 1 existing fat tire track. Good fun other than last 2km. Would be good to have more traffic (snowshoe and bike) to pack and widen the track. No studs needed but fatties a must. Tons of snow and still snowing as we left late aft yesterday.

      Oct 27, 2018 Goat Creek Trail Canmore to Banff: Parking lot temp 5 degrees with biting wind and flurries. First 1/3 of ride we encountered compact snow with a light dusting of new snow overnight that made the surface very grippy. Last 2/3 of the ride was a mix of clear sections and a few wet icy sections that were slippery and easy to go sideways on/crash on if one wasn't cautious. Looking far ahead / trail scanning was very important! All rideable if one rode conservatively in the trickier sections. We were riding on regular 27.5" bikes. Two trees across the trail that were easily walked around
