There are some non-skier tracks we enjoy seeing on the ski trail. I know the ski tracks were made by Rory, but he was wondering which animal made the other tracks on Rolly Road in PLPP. Rory didn’t see imprints of toenails.
Thanks for all the trip reports and photos. I realize it isn’t funny, but I had to laugh at Mike W’s encounter with the walkers. I know this sounds ruthless, but would taking a photo and shaming them on the internet solve the problem? Just the threat of it would likely be enough to deter them. Can these people really be lost with so many trail markers and signs?
Chuck provided photos from his trip to Lake O’Hara, including a shot of the avalanche path at 6.5K.
Parks Canada posted a photo of yesterday’s Borgeau size 3.5 naturally triggered avalanche which released around 5 pm. It ran over the ice climb and the powder cloud dusted cars in the parking lot.
The Bill Milne trail is being trackset this evening. I would imagine Wedge Connector and Evan-Thomas will also be completed.
Healy Creek and Cascade Valley were trackset today. M & J were on Healy Creek and Brewster Creek today. As you can see in their photos, there’s lots of fresh snow on Brewster Creek but I am guessing it will be trackset tomorrow by Sundance Lodge.
Tracksetting at Lake Louise today included Great Divide, Lower Telemark, Campground Loop, and Fairview.
There are wind warnings out tonight for the mountains, so you can expect some tree debris on the trails tomorrow(Thursday). Fortunately the windy weather will be followed with significant snowfall on Friday for most of the empire.
