    From The Land Of Ice And Snow

    In mid March we helicoptered into the Campbell Icefield Chalet in the backcountry NE of Golden BC, for our third week of looking after lodge operations this winter. While there are some routine chores, and maintenance responsibilities- we were also there to ski. We had a great week of that in...

    Alberta Skiing Weekend

    With above average snowfall coupled with temperatures colder than the norm- it has felt like a long winter here in Alberta. For us skiers, this is of course good news, and we have been taking advantage. Lately however, I have been pining for the warm desert sun that we savoured last October, but...

    Jasper NP - Tonquin Valley

    This was a short trip that did not go quite as i would have liked. I started it after exiting the Skyline Trail, and stopping by the town of Jasper. I had two nights to see Tonquin Valley, with Amethyst Lake, and the Ramparts above. How ever, it rained all of the middle day that i intended to...

    Jasper NP, Skyline Trail

    I hiked the Skyline Trail in Jasper National Park in early August last summer. As trails go, it's a scenic highlight of the area, with most of it's miles above tree line. A little more than 35 miles, i did it with three nights, with the first and last being as close to the trail heads as...

    Skyline Trail - Jasper National Park

    Vacation this year took us up to Banff and Jasper National Parks in Canada. I had planned on going in September after the crowds had died down a little, but because of work responsibilities, we had to go in August. The plan was essentially to make the 14+ hour drive from Salt Lake, and then hike...
