    Powder face

    Anyone head out to powder face trail yet? Was thinking if doing a night blast sometime this week with all the snow.

    Did you end up going out? I've never ridden sled East of Golden and am local to Calgary. Would love to meet up with someone who knows the local trails for a trail rip if conditions are good enough.

    Nope, never made it out. I'd imagine with the recent chinook, most the snow is gone.

    I was doing a little bit of testing out at Mclean last weekend. The snow was okay if you rode where there were previous tracks. Too bad they plow the road that heads west past the gravel pit. Really stupid really when they have a sign saying that it is a road for shared purpose and it includes snowmobiling on the sign. Do you go from Mclean or Sibal Flats when accessing Powder Face?

    The powderface trail from the south end is bare gravel in most places. I had my dog team out there last week before the Chinook and ran 15 miles up the road and destroyed the plastic runners on the dog sled. They are doing work up there on yhe powderface due to floods.

    We were in a meeting today and the road to Powderface is closed. gate closed and locked. Even the hiker and skiers were sad.

    This is what was said. I don't even know where it is. Just saying

    Gate is always locked Dec 1-May 15 unless they are logging. Access is from the north end, at the Dawson parking lot. No idea what conditions are like, no where near there right now but it is usually thin and the road tends to have large gravel areas on south facing sections. Basically only an option if there has just been a big storm.
