Ha Ling & Miner's Peak (Easy Scramble)

(Don't make plans that depend on it. It's the mountains!)

Winter has arrived folks. But that doesn't mean that we should stay home and climb on the couch. Even though a great part of K-country is heavily snowed, we still have many options where we can continue to enjoy summit-driven scrambles.
I'm also interested in going for a supper and hot chocolate in Canmore after the trip.
Gear Required: Microspikes/crampons, hiking boots or mountaineering boots (snowshoes if you prefer), hiking poles, warm clothes and shell layers, food and minimum 2litres of water (don't bring bladders, they freeze up).
Recommended: Ice axe, climbing helmet, camera, gaiters.
Directions: Drive to Canmore. Drive up highway #742, the Smith-Dorrien-Spray Lakes Trail towards the Canmore Nordic Centre. Continue past the turn-off for the Nordic Centre, keeping to the left. Continue on the gravel and park in the Goat Creek Parking Lot.
