Winsport closed the Ski and Snowboard hill for the season as of March 28. This info supersedes advice given on March 27 and is due to deteriorating conditions on the hill. The cross country trail closed earlier in March.
Apologies to anyone who read the post on March 27 and thought the hill was staying open until April 2.
Greater Bragg Creek
Greater Bragg Creek Trails Association has also announced that due to lack of snow the grooming operations in their area are likely now concluded for the season.
Shaganappi Point is also closed for cross country skiing and the golf driving range will be opening on Saturday March 14.
Congratulations go to all the winners, the new record holders, and to everyone who participated.
Many thanks go to the Loppet organizing and operations teams, as well as the the volunteers for making this a successful Lake Louise Loppet!

Will Gadd was named one of National Geographic’s 2014/2015 adventurers of the year, Gadd is an experienced paraglider, kayaker, and champion ice climber, widely thought of as being among the most versatile outdoor athletes in the world.
