Incredible Conditions at Lake LouisePosted: January 22, 2011
There’s little question skiers have been enjoying fantastic conditions at Lake Louise this past week, and with the welcome addition of sunlight and improved visibility, Saturday was no exception. Whether or not there were fresh tracks to be had, everyone had the chance to enjoy nice soft snow that covered the entire mountain. Avalanche control teams have done an outstanding job working terrain after getting pummelled by wave after wave of storm snow, and by Saturday all terrain that had already been opened this season was open again.
Along with the new snow, a strong and sustained push of westerly/southwesterly winds did a great job of filling in much of our usual leeward terrain. From Boomerang and Whitehorn I all the way over to Crow Bowl and East Bowl, skiers were able to find their own lines well into the day.
