Kananaskis Valley Trail Report

Print Report

Updated: April 21, 2017

While snow and ice are trying to melt from valley bottom trails, forecasts call for more snow overnight with rain/snow throughout the weekend. At time of writing, valley bottom trails have a mix of snow/ice and mud, with occasional bare patches on paved trails. Anticipate very slippery conditions on trails that are groomed through the winter. At this time no more formal grooming is anticipated, but the occasional visitor is still setting skier-set track. This Alberta Parks trail report provides general trail status information and the Ribbon Creek Live Grooming report shows the most recent grooming information. 

Notes:

  1. Bears and cougars are active - Carry bear spray, keep dogs on leash, remain observant and observe wildlife safety techniques
  2. Ensure you consult the Kananaskis Country Avalanche Report prior to venturing out.
  3. Caution is advised for natural hazards such as downed trees,

Seasonal Closures:

  1. Partial Stoney Trail seasonal closure: April 15 - June 15
  2. Centennial Ridge seasonal closure: April 1 - June 21
  3. Galatea Creek Trail: May 1 - late June
