Bring in the new year with some exercise! We could meet earlier than 10 am at the car pool if there is a consensus. This is an easy trip, open to anyone; the less fit can cut the ski trip short. Trail conditions at West Bragg (just 45 minutes west of Calgary) are reportedly excellent. We will start with West Crystal Line, south on Sundog, Iron springs, Elbow, then Sundog, west on Crystal line, west on Moose Connector returning to parking lot on the mountain road. This is estimated at 2 hours. We can enjoy lunch at the Pub in Bragg Creek. If trail conditions are poor we will do Peter Lougheed Park starting at the Pocaterra hut.
