Trails are hard packed (H4) fine grained (G1), dry clean snow. The weather has been cold and dry allowing additional snow making, for the world cup, on the race course keeping the track primarily man made. Testing has shown the MGR2 grind to be a strong performer. Other grinds moving well are a well used GR1 grind and a used CLO1 in classic tracks. In these conditions polishing the front of your skis with jewellers paper is beneficial. In this cold dry weather pattern Fisher cold bases may outperform plus bases, Salomon blue skis and Rossignol S1 skis are good bets.

Alberta Cup 1&2

Canmore, November 24-25

Trails are in great condition. The snow is fine grained man made snow (G1, G2) with mid to hard pack conditions (H3, H4). Day time temps have been slightly plus however due to cool nights no melting of the track has occurred. The winning combination for these conditions are plus bases (Fisher), yellow skis (Salomon), S2 skis (Rossignol) along with a MGR2 grind for your skate race skis and CLO1 or MGR2 grind for your classic skis. While we believe that these would be the ideal grinds, GR1 grind can be counted on as a stable performer for this weekend!

Bring your race skis to us before 5:30pm Friday and they will be ready to rock for the weekend races.
