Another quick update on the ice flow at Kananaskis situation:
Alex, Acting Bow and Kananaskis Valley Trails Supervisor was on site at the ice flow yesterday afternoon. At that time the flow had receded and water was again flowing under the bridge.
With lower night time temperatures, the ice build up may reform, resulting in a return of the ice flow, but they will keep their eyes on it and see if a re-route can be created after the weekend.
There is not enough snow at this time to make a proper re-route with the snowcat.

Alberta Parks Kananaskis Valley Trail Report
Nordic-Pulse Live Grooming Report - Ribbon Creek
Thanks to CanmoreChris and Bob Truman who alerted us of the ice flow on Bill Milne trail.
I've been in contact with Duane F., acting Infrastructure Manager for Kananaskis. Duane is aware of the situation and is working to resolve the problem. They have posted warnings/information on the Alberta Parks Kananaskis Valley Trail Report and the Nordic-Pulse Live Grooming Report sites (see links above).
excerpt from Nordic-Pulse:
"On Bill Milne, the ice flow has returned between the Kananaskis River and the golf course due to ice jams on the Kananaskis River and this portion of trail is impassable. We will work to create a by-pass option but in the mean time, the full trail cannot realistically be completed in an outing without bushwhacking"
