Snowing at the Lake

7:30am Friday at Lake Louise:

*****

After getting up onto the mountain, we were happy to discover another 10cm of new snow had fallen overnight. This amount had not been recorded by our remote weather station at Pika Corner, and the suspicion was that the measuring board had been blown clear by the high to extreme winds the area saw during the night. We knew there would be some snow, but exactly how much would require crews to see for themselves. Around 8:30am, the day’s avalanche forecaster paid a visit to our informal plot near the base of Top of the World chair and saw that 10cm had accumulated since the end of day yesterday, and the snow was still coming down.

With more snow in the forecast for this weekend, great conditions at Lake Louise just keep getting better, with another stellar weekend knocking on the door.

Later that morning, at Top of the World...
