Emerald Lake and Yoho

From all the reports I’m getting, it sounds like the trails are in great shape. This is the latest email I received from Jessica…

Just a quick reminder that we will be doing a guided ski trip from the Natural Bridge to Emerald Lake on Saturday Feb.7th. We will meet at the Natural Bridge at 10:30am. Bring a lunch, we will have a stop at Emerald Sports to re-fuel…

Option #1, is to ski back to Natural Bridge and Option #2, is to catch a shuttle back to the Natural Bridge.

Please email me if you are planning to come out, I need to plan shuttle space if needs be…

The trails are in fantastic shape, I hope many members can join me! All skiing levels are welcome…”

The above event is for members of the Kicking Horse Ski Club.  The KHSC is responsible for the grooming and tracksetting in Emerald Lake and Yoho, but they have a very small local population of skiers to carry out this function. That’s why I encourage everyone who enjoys skiing there to buy a membership in the club for $40.00.  There are expenses associated with tracksetting such as equipment purchase and maintenance.

Superb conditions on the Emerald connector

Last year, the club sold exactly 100 memberships and they need 29 more to reach that level for this winter.

The club holds a number of special events every winter for members, such as moonlight skis, animal tracking courses, and guided ski trips such as the one this Saturday on the Connector.

Furthermore, with a ski club membership, you can stay at Emerald Lake Lodge midweek for only $109/night.
