West Bragg Creek - Fair to ok

Trip date: Wednesday Feb 16, 2022

I have to admit, I do admire what the groomers at Bragg are able to do with the trifling amounts of snow we've been getting. Skied on West Crystal Line (lower and upper), Moose Connector, Mountain Road, part of Mountain View West, and Mountain View. All trails are groomed and have a solid, ice base that comes through fairly often in the tracksets, but there's sufficient coverage to jump out of the tracks if needed.

Mountain View West was groomed but not trackset - not enough snow for tracking, but it's just fine for skiing on.

Mountain View - plenty of snow on the south side, but the steeper north side is pretty bare, with soil and grass showing through. There's another short area that's also pretty bare.

All the other trails were groomed and trackset. A little slippy, but just fine if you're willing to just enjoy what there is. Packed down, there's only a few cm of coverage over the ice base, but that's enough.
