Thanks! I wish I had a good camera but I use my iPhone 12 and "improve" them with Microsoft Photo Editor. I love photography but I don't want to sacrifice time and energy when we ski or hike.
Thanks MaSid, this is where I go but I think they used to have additional notes about most recent grooming and conditions at the top of these pages, I can't find them anymore.

Love your pictures.
The top 3 pics look like a quasi fish eye wide angle lens which were taken with some good positioning effort. There are some pretty nice converging lines as well. They eyes sure move through the photos or pics following lines and curves. The bottom picture shows some nice winter colors in the creek shot. Well done.
This is a great ski trail to get some Bow Valley views and the railway is not very close which is nice.

First time there for XC skiing, we took it easy after a week with COVID and this was the perfect spot for that... Spring conditions though.
Pretty bad conditions for the first 50 m or so starting from Healy Creek parking lot. Then, it is decent with skier track on the right side, debris, only a few icy sections and maybe a dozen rocks to watch for along the way. Conditions got better after Brewster junction. From Sundance to Cave and Basin, it is very icy at times but easy to avoid as there is a lot of space.
*** I can't find Parks Canada grooming updates anymore on their website. If anyone knows where to find them, please share!
Total distance: 15.63 Km
