-Moraine Lake road. Photo by Chuck–
This is what we’ve been waiting for! The Great Divide at Lake Louise was trackset yesterday afternoon(Friday), and Moraine Lake road was trackset this morning.
Thanks to Chuck for the photos on this update. If anyone has photos of the tracksetting on the Great Divide, please send them to me, or post them on the trip reports.
If you were sking at Lake Louise today, we’d like to hear about your experience. What wax did you use? How were conditions coming down the big hill?
Moraine Lake road ski trail is 9K to the end of the tracksetting. The Great Divide is 10K to the Lake O’Hara end. Both trails are out-and-back.
The Great Divide is an excellent trail for beginner skiers because it is wide with a few small, gentle hills. Moraine Lake road is suitable for beginners to Paradise Creek at 2.6K at which time a steep hill will confront you.
You’ll notice in Chuck’s photos that he skied 2K beyond the end of the tracksetting to reach the lake. The reason the trail is not trackset for the final 2K is because of avalanche danger. Act accordingly.
