Yes mate. March is supposedly the most precipitous month which here in southern Alberta means snow. Hopefully it'll melt quick as, since October, my mountain bike has seen less action than John Waynes safety catch.
It's been the worst winter in Alberta for 40 years. Under the huge amount of snow the ground is solid for the most part. The few tracks that have been cleared of snow are quickly reverting to boggy mud as the RE vehicles try and cross them whilst they're trying to sort the targetry. As the snow melts there is expected to be huge flooding across the prairie. The only people actually exercising would be the Reccy Mechs, and the vehicle fleet that has just been through WRP would be wrecked before they'd even had a full exercise.
I could be wrong then. I was out there last year and we done 1 & 2 then i am sure our welsh friends done 3 & 4 and that took them up to September so i would be suprised if there was another 3 after that.
One presumes you've never seen an RCK then, which is very much the posh end of the market or used to be.

Modern posh probably involves a penetrating smart munition.

It's simply using HE to loosen ground to aid construction, different ground types pose different problems natch.
