April 20: Grooming has now concluded for the season. The campground roads have now been plowed; this affects a number or trails which will now have extra road crossings and/or parts of the trail plowed to pavement. These trails include Wheeler, Whiskey Jack, Morraine, and Sinclair. Be BEAR aware, they are out and about in the Peter Lougheed Park area.

Spring conditions exist, and with temperatures generally rising above freezing during the day, expect possible icy conditions on the trails, or under new snow, especially in the mornings, softening if and when temperatures climb above the freezing mark. Bare spots have started to encroach on to the trails, especially in the north end of the trail system, as the base is much deeper and conditions generally less icy further south and at higher elevations; bare could soon be anywhere in the Park. Ice flows and slush are starting to appear as the snow pack shrinks; ice flows are likely on but not limited to: Packers at about the halfway point, Amos west of the Lynx junction, Rolly Rd north of the group camp, Come Along south of the group camp, and just east of the Lower Lake Group junction. Also expect possible "snow bombs" and other tree debris on the trails.
