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
