New Aerial Photos of Lake Louise

As I mentioned in a recent post, I had the chance to go for a long helicopter flight last weekend just after the World Cup men’s downhill race had ended. The flight was to allow a CBC cameraman to get some high-definition footage of the ski area and surrounding mountains for the TV broadcast, and since there was an empty seat up front, I was able to tag along. It was a beautiful day – sunny with enough clouds to add some drama and provide nice light. I always love getting to see the resort from a new perspective, and this flight was long enough to allow me to get a lot of good shots, a sampling of which are below (click on photos for larger versions).
