Updated: December 12, 2018

Updated: December 12, 2018 | Print Report

Expect trails to be variable in condition from packed snow and ice at higher elevations, to dryer conditions at lower elevations and in sun exposed areas. Early season avalanche conditions exist, take care while traveling in the backcountry.

    Notes:

    1. Live Grooming Report for West Bragg Creek.
    2. Check for avalanche information on the Avalanche Canada website. Pack appropriately for changing conditions, including traction devices/hiking poles, and don't forget to dress in layers!
    3. Be wildlife aware! Traveling in groups, keeping pets on leash and carrying bear spray is highly recommended. See the Wildlife Safety page for more information.
    4. The All Season Trails system was created in partnership with the Government of Alberta and the Greater Bragg Creek Trails Association (GBCTA). Please visit the GBCTA website to learn more.
    5. Caution is advised for natural hazards such as downed trees and snow/ice on trail.
    6. There is now a free public cellular hotspot immediately south of the Trails Centre at the WBC Parking Lot, which enables visitors to make emergency and non-emergency calls.
