Louise going into April

After mountain biking the day before in relatively dry Canmore, we headed for Lake Louise on Good Friday (April 3) for some fun on the sticks. Although there was some new snow during the week, the base looked pretty starved. That said, it was a sun/cloud day that seemed to favour us for the runs down the alpine. We mostly skied ER7 and the Whitehorn Chutes, as they had the softest snow (as such this winter), and a fair bit of windsift overnight.

Just for kicks, later in the morning, we trekked past Brown Shirts, and Boundary Bowl (see pics). We were pleasantly surprised to see plenty of uncut powder/windsift, albeit on a sun-crusted base. It skied just fine, and we had a picnic lunch with a fine view of all the Backside runs. Lots of skiers in various doubleblacks having some great spring runs!

Snowing as this gets posted in Canmore. Monday might be fun for some skiing somewhere....
