I don’t think anything exists for a xc skier without a vehicle to access the places Rodrigo would like to ski at(the ones which are not accessible by Roam Transit). I’m publishing his email in the hopes that someone can provide advice.
First of all I’d like to congratulate you for your great blog!
Well, my wife Nicole and I are Vancouverites who are coming to Lake Louise without a vehicle. (:
We are staying at the Mountaineer Lodge from the 1st to the 8th and we will definitely take 3-4 days doing Moraine Lake and Lake O’Hara/Great Divide, the other trails that are open in the area according to Parks Canada and will take public transit to Canmore Nordic Centre — and to Tunnel Mountain for some night skiing as well as Sundance and Spray River if the snow comes to Banff.
But we were trying to understand if there was any rideshare system or other options for non drivers in order to reach places like Lake Minnewanka, Elk Pass, Blueberry Hill, Bow Valley, Johnson Lake, Boom Lake and Baker Creek — as well as any other recommendations you have.
Thank you again for your great service to the global Xcountry ski community to discover the Rockies!!”
Thanks to trip reports from Kat, Martin and Jip, it sounds like West Bragg Creek is skiable again.
It was nice to read about Steve Riggs’ and Piper’s “Urban Ski Tour” in the city. Environment Canada tallies the official Calgary snowfall amount yesterday at 13.2 cm. When we took Tessa for a walk in the park, I was lamenting that I didn’t bring my skis along!
Surely someone was at Elk Pass today?? I was hoping for a report.
