Above Bullet Canyon:
A few years ago, I have no idea why I am on my powder board:
Same here in Alberta, as usual for April. On our 18 km ski tour yesterday in Kananaskis and a brief corner of Banff NP, we looped through 2 valleys, via 3 passes, with 2 descents offering some pretty good powder turns along the way.
Below- a short bootpack was required in one spot- it's been a low snow winter here.

The weather closed in and the winds picked up as we prepared to descend from the first pass of the day. Our next pass is above yellow jacket's head, after the descent into the valley that separates the two passes.

With the stormy weather, the camera was safely stowed away for the remainder of the trip.
Wow - these photos are incredible. I want to go there!Perfect snow conditions and great weather, last week at Campbell Icefield backcountry ski lodge in the Canadian Rockies, NE of Golden B.C.

Nothing better than a wood fired sauna at day's end.

Yes, it's Arnold Promise. It started blooming very early this year, around February 1st. We've had this one for years and like it so much we recently planted two more. It's fun to see the yellow poking out through the snow right now!You beat me to it! Rick just took photos of 2 different Witch Hazels today. Winter blooming shrubs, amazing fragrance, love those shrubs.
Is this the Arnold Promise?
No snow on ours.
