Is Fish Creek Park or Bowness (Sidebob etc) in good condition?

Rode Bowmont last night with Sideshow. Literally, everyone with their dog out but great conditions, Dry and dusty.

About 20 kids in a constant loop sessioning the dj. It was great.

Friend who went skiing at WBC yesterday said 10-14 cm of new (wet) snow. Likely more up higher on Moose I would think. Springtime in Alberta...

All of Bowmont was in prime shape this afternoon. Not Moose, but better than no dirt riding at all. Much better.

If we can allow a road report, the Minnewanka road loop is close to cars mid-week. Did a bunch of laps today. It's really nice.

I saw that the road would be closed a while back. Sounds like it would be a great place to run the road bike without fear of being run over by a texting driver.
Question: How do the people camping at Two Jack get in and out during the week?

Two Jack lakeside open for campers May 21, the day the closure ends. Two Jack Main doesn't open for campers until June 24.

Although short, it's as good as it gets, with a good surface, beautiful views, and pleasantly rolling terrain. Add an out-and-back on Johnson Lake Road for some bonus distance and elevation.

There are still some vehicles, as Parks use the closures to do maintenance work throughout the area, including cutting trees close to the road. They're aware of the high cyclist traffic, though, and are more accommodating than typical tourist traffic.
