Many club members have asked for a trip to the Banff area. This trip is especially perfect for those that enjoy both cross country and downhill. Lake Louise has a large number of spectacularly scenic trails from novice to advanced, with single or double track-settings and skate lanes. Climb steadily up picturesque Moraine Lake Road, ski across frozen Lake Louise, or explore old pioneer log cabins. There are four trails along the Bow Valley Parkway, a spectacularly scenic winding road that connects Banff and Lake Louise. Take the Castle Lookout to Protection Mountain trail to see the original auto-route through Banff National Park or climb gradually through lodge pole pine forests to the Shadow Lake trail from the Red Earth Creek trail. There are many classic cross country trails around the town of Banff, ranging from easy to moderate. Venture through dense forest to the Brewster Creek Junction, enjoy pleasant rolling terrain in the Cascade Valley, and go night skiing under the stars at the Tunnel Mountain Campground Trailer Court.
Please note that you must have a valid passport to enter and return from Canada.
