Most of us have noticed a significant increase in hikers and snowshoers on the trails this year. Would anyone like to speculate on why we aren’t seeing the usual signage at Lake Louise this winter?
Update: The below comment and attached photo was submitted after I posted this update:
Wow, what a fabulous ski today on the cascade fire road! However, on the way up I couldn’t help but notice the post-hole tracks from walkers in the soft snow. I would like to assume that things like this come down to education – they just don’t know that their deep foot prints have an impact. Below, I have attached a sign that is used in BC on trails where there are multiple user groups. I wonder if this education campaign is something that Parks Canada and the other Parks would consider implementing?? -Leslie
The south trails in PLPP were trackset last night. Elk Pass, Blueberry Hill, Hydroline and Patterson. “Mid-winter condition.”
Tracksetting yesterday at Lake Louise included Fairview, Campground loop, Bow River loop, Tramline, and Moraine Lk Rd.
Ribbon Creek was groomed. I’m asuming it was roll-packed with a snowmobile.
