Getting married at Emerald Lake would be fantastic, but it pales in comparison to skiing in superb conditions as they were today. I’ve never had such a wonderful time

We started out the new year with what I consider to be the most scenic, trackset trail in the Rockies. It’s the Emerald Lake horse trail and alluvial fan. Now for the first time ever, we skied on the east side of Emerald Lake which is also trackset. It allows you to complete

Some new places to ski

November 23, 2008

Canmore Nordic Centre has 900m of man-made snow for skating and classic skiing. It’s amazing they have anything ready, considering the weather, and you don’t have to pay yet.
