Intermediate/Advance­d XC Ski Tour - Paradise Valley Trail, Lake Louise

What could be more glorious than a Saturday ski tour in Paradise Valley??  We will ski up Morraine Lake road for 2 km and then climb up through a wooded trail to Paradise Valley and on towards the creek. We will ski through the valley and cross the creek several times before heading back.  We will turn around before we get into avalanche terrain.  Our pace will be moderate.  NOTE: Only the Morraine Lake Road section of this trail is track-set. We will stop in Banff for beers & maybe hot springs so bring your bathing suit just in case.

    Is anybody interested in a stop in Banff at hot pools afterwards? A soak after this workout would be nice. Cheers!
