Discussion:

A few people have been asking: "Do we need parking passes for PLPP again this year?".

To be clear:
The parking pass program that was run in the winter of 2020-21 by Nordiq Alberta was completed on April 5, 2021. It supported winter ski trail grooming in Kananaskis for the 2020-21 winter season, and will not be continued in the future.

Going forward, Alberta Environment and Parks has announced the “Conservation pass” that will support a wide range of services throughout the Kananaskis, including winter ski trail grooming in 2021-22 and beyond. Information on the Conservation Pass can be found at https://www.alberta.ca/kananaskis-conservation-pass.aspx

sort of an aside to this question but do you need this pass to ski and park at the Canmore Nordic Centre? (on top of their fee to ski?)

ANSWER: Yes. $15/day to park + $15/day to ski. Pretty expensive I’d say - although I suppose many skiers already have the annual $90 parking pass.

Alf… seems like a no-brainer. If skiers need to have a Conservation Pass to park at WBC, then revenue from that pass should go to support WBC grooming. Is there any on-going discussion with AEP on this?

...Except that the Alberta Government has not provided Bragg Creek Trails with a single cent from the Kananaskis Conservation Pass to support snow grooming or trail maintenance.
Thanks for nothing!
