Thanks for looking into this MikeW.
Can we then expect to see eGrooming? Or will that even be necessary?

But the real question remains:
Why did Fortis take a Truck?
How about using a snowmobile?
I feel for the Banff Park Tracksetter.

Check the date of the YouTube video: April 1 2018 - It appears to be an April Fool's joke.

I commented on this in Chuck's Upper Bankhead report from today - https://www.skierroger.ca/index.php?content=showski&id=190 (or click on the "Link to another photos page or website" link above). But Roger figured this was an important enough issue that I should create a separate post for it.
Chuck noted that there were truck tracks on the Upper Bankhead trail this morning, and that it was Fortis (the local power company) who drove up to fix an electrical outlet.
The person I spoke with at Parks earlier today said that in fact they're extending their pilot eBike program to include eSkis. Fortis was in to install an eSki charging station. It's a big thing in Europe now, especially for backcountry touring. See the guy on the right in the photo above. Check out the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJWkM531Keg.
