The wood fireplace has been replaced by a gas insert on a timer and probably a thermostat.

Thanks Arie. Music to my ears:
"Abundant snowfall is expected throughout much of ski country from the Coastal Range of British Columbia through the Rockies of western Alberta."

Hi Roger,

So glad someone is taking over SkierBob's amazing XC Ski site! I have your page bookmarked in order to stay in the loop with respect to conditions. PS. I'm not very good either, but XC skiing sure is a great way to stay in shape and have fun in the winter months :-D

Looking forward to ski season, YAHOO!!!

BTW, I made a programming adjustment so long web addresses can be now handled. A link to this website now exists in your post.

Thanks very much for your reply ODA. Your prompted me to make a change...

Now when you click the Home button, you will see a COMPLETE listing of all trip reports AND follow-up comments. I've colored the reports blue and the comments red so they are easy to differentiate. The list is sorted by post date (latest first). Click the trip report title and you will see the full report and associated comments.

I continue to show the "Post Summary" button. This is shorter and summarizes just the trip reports. The number of comments associated with each report is provided.

I think this is much more useful. thanks for your question.

Thanks for taking this over Roger.

I have had the immense pleasure of meeting Bob on the trails on a number of occasions and most recently while skiing with the Shell and Esso retiree groups. Like some many others who have followed your blog over the years, Bob, you can’t be thanked enough for your tireless dedication in promoting the sport, fostering goodwill amongst those who share the trails and your efforts to encourage all levels to get out and enjoy what winter has to offer. You have been a wonderful ambassador that will be missed

Chuck - I nearly broke an ankle on that little hill last spring when the crust failed suddenly, so I was determined to redeem myself and get some good turns this time.

Roger - The mountains do all the work, I just point my phone at them and let them work their magic!

I'm sure Roger appreciates this type of report while he develops his blog during the end of a season.

Fabulous outing. Funny, there was also a guy on the old site named Steve who was always posting crocuses. What a coincidence.

Hey Tim.Coombs, Hwy 66 (Elbow Falls Trail) has the same dealio. Closed til May 15 beyond the falls.

I am definitely in favour of these reports when the skiing ends. Great to see which roads are still closed where road rides can happen. Highwood Pass and 1A were the only ones I was aware of this far. Thanks!
