Bowness Road and Shagannappi Trail, Calgary, AB
Ah, Lake Louise! What a gorgeous area! We’re off to ski around Fairview – its lovely winding trails, amongst the trees, and head off to Moraine Lake Road. The ambitious may ski all the way to the turn-around point at the top, while the rest of us make our way leisurely back down to the road. We will return to the main Lake Louise parking lot via Tramline.
Skiers of all level of difficulties are welcome on this trip as we will be splitting skiers into two groups based on skiing ability.
This is an easy to moderate ski with a few climbs and snowplowing sections. Knowing how to snowplow, or being willing to learn is helpful.
