It’s a lot nicer to ski this on a sunny day, but even on an overcast day like yesterday, the scenery is spectacular. I skied from Castle Lookout to the CPR access

You need to ski this trail when there’s no wind, the the sun is shining and the snow is pristine. It’s a bonus if it’s been recently trackset. The scenery is spectacular.
How many of you know the origin of this phrase? I thought it meant something completely different:
This trail is known by a couple other names: “Leg 2 of the Loppet” and “Double Hump Trail”(courtesy of Helen Read). It was groomed and trackset
There are several locations along the Castle Lookout to Baker Creek trail where Banff National Park could install their famous red chairs. Yesterday, Helen Read
My favourite part of this trail is the initial 5K from Castle Lookout. Soon after starting out, it veers away from the road and meanders through sensational scenery.

Conditions were just about perfect If you stayed home to mail out your Christmas cards instead of joining us for a fabulous XC ski trip to Lake Louise, well, you’ve got your priorities all messed up. LOL (Glenna are you listening?) We couldn’t have asked for better weather or snow…
