Lake Louise Ski Area

View Canadian Rockies on divatmotoros's travel map.

The coming weekend was a perfect opportunity to meet our Calgary friends again (after the fantastic Queensland weekend). We agreed earlier to meet Friday evening at Lake Louise and explore further North towards Columbia Icefield and Jasper. In the morning we did our routine of dumping our black and grey tanks, filling the freshwater tank and visited a petrol station in Banff to fill up Fordy as well. By 2pm we stopped at the agreed spot, dropped off the trailer and drove to the base station of the Lake Lousie Ski Resort. There we took the gondola to the "Top of the World" which is a bit of an overstatement while the views are very dramatic and breathtaking.


We hiked the Pika Trail further up an additional 200m elevation gain in just 1 km. We had to push the kids a bit but afterwards they were very proud of their performance (just like us). The view from the top was worth the effort and Lake Louise showed us a very different face compared to our lucky kayak session earlier.


We got back to the parking spot which was filling up for the evening and around 21:00 our friends arrived. After a quick chat we agreed the strategy for the next day and went for the well deserved rest.
