I was thrilled to read Mary’s trip report from Lake Louise where she said it was snowing “pretty good” this afternoon. I’m wondering how much snow will greet Chip, Peter, Pat and me tomorrow morning at Elk Pass?
I had trouble deciding on a title for this blog post. Amazing news for dogs and dog owners A beautiful day at Strathmore golf course Off-leash skiing close to Calgary Don’t make assumptions The best $5 I’ve ever spent Good food and warm bathrooms

West Bragg Creek received 10-15 cm of cold, powdery snow. Most of the trails have been roll-packed. The temperature at 2:30 pm was -9°C.

If you’re looking for a scenic, easy, dog-friendly trail, check out the Bow River loop at Lake Louise. I had a wonderful ski there with Tessa yesterday afternoon.
