-Ice Magic at Lake Louise-
After skiing the Pipestone trails yesterday, and although it was late, I ventured over to ski the Fairview loop, starting at Moraine Lake Road parking lot.
Before I got started, I met someone who had come over to inspect the trail because of what she had heard about it being damaged by a person driving on it.
She told me that on Saturday night, an idiot decided to move the barricade and drive his SUV on the groomed ski trail otherwise known as Moraine Lake Road. He got stuck and asked a friend to pull him out. The friend also got stuck.
Needless to say, they caused a lot of damage to the ski trail, but the damage has been repaired and the trail is open again.
I sure wish I had a photo so we could have another Caption Contest. No doubt he was a downhill skier.
MLR has about 2 cm of new snow over the recent grooming, but it’s in excellent shape. Fairview has at least 10 cm of snow over Wednesday’s grooming(Update: Jan 19 @ 11:58 a.m. Fairview was trackset today). At the end of Fairview, I skied over to the lake and took a few photos of the Ice Magic show.
I then enjoyed a nice moonlight ski down Tramline back to my car.
