Shark ( Marushka ) Lake Snowshoe OT3- Beginners Welcome

8KM return and less than 100 meters of elevation gain. Shark Lake also known as Marushka Lake lies in a valley between Mount Shark and Tent Ridge. The access is from the Smith Dorrien Road. Turn onto the Mount Shark road to a parking area on the right 1.8 km up the road.

There are options for some off trail fun because there is usually deep snow here. Only for those who wish to of course
Waivers: As per the new policy for waivers, I will bring the group waiver form with me to both the Calgary Meetup location and the trailhead. You must sign it before you will be allowed to go on this hike. You will also be asked to provide the name and phone number of an emergency contact. You are fully aware that organizers are not professional guides and you assume all responsibility for your safety and well-being. You are fully prepared with proper gear and you're physically fit to do this hike with the group.

    Many times its not the destination but the journey that makes a trip great. Well we almost got to Shark Lake but we sure had a lot of fun on the way and on the way back. The 30% chance of flurries at times was a full out snow storm obscuring any landmarks and yes throwing us somewhat off trail. Oh well, all part of being in the mountains.
