The party was ascending the 30 degree chute, approx 8m wide, and stopped as it began to widen and the snow became more obviously wind affected. 6 photos Sunday February 5th Avalanche Canada, 2 days ago Forecast Regions: Banff Yoho Kootenay, Little Yoho, Banff, East Side 93N, Kootenay, LLSA, Lake Louise, Sunshine, West Side 93N, Field Sunday February 5th Avalanche Canada, 2 days ago Forecast Regions: Banff Yoho Kootenay, Little Yoho, Banff, East Side 93N, Kootenay, LLSA, Lake Louise, Sunshine, West Side 93N, Field Temple Lake Ridge Banff Yoho Kootenay: Lake Louise, 3 days ago Observation Ever heard of anybody skiing up this ridge? Well neither have we! Turns out it's unlikely to become a Lake Louise classic ski ascent - at least with the conditions we had. Absolutely heinous trailbreaking in spots, some of the worst I've ever done in my life. 2 photos Saturday February 4th Avalanche Canada, 3 days ago Forecast Regions: Banff Yoho Kootenay, Little Yoho, Banff, East Side 93N, Kootenay, LLSA, Lake Louise, Sunshine, West Side 93N, Field Saturday February 4th Avalanche Canada, 3 days ago Forecast Regions: Banff Yoho Kootenay, Little Yoho, Banff, East Side 93N, Kootenay, LLSA, Lake Louise, Sunshine, West Side 93N, Field Friday February 3rd Avalanche Canada, 4 days ago Forecast Regions: Banff Yoho Kootenay, Little Yoho, Banff, East Side 93N, Kootenay, LLSA, Lake Louise, Sunshine, West Side 93N, Field Thursday February 2nd Avalanche Canada, 5 days ago Forecast Regions: Banff Yoho Kootenay, Little Yoho, Banff, East Side 93N, Kootenay, LLSA, Lake Louise, Sunshine, West Side 93N, Field Panorama Ridge Banff Yoho Kootenay: Lake Louise, 6 days ago Observation some rocks on the lower half of the trail to Taylor and hard packed bordering on icy in spots but nice and wide to allow for snowplowing. The ridge snow was okay, not the best conditions we've skied but still ski-able. A layer about 30 cm down and facets under that.

Now a lot of snow at all, and previous ski tracks were very hard and crusty. 1 photos Saturday January 28th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Banff Yoho Kootenay, Little Yoho, Banff, East Side 93N, Kootenay, LLSA, Lake Louise, Sunshine, West Side 93N, Field Narao Trees Banff Yoho Kootenay: Lake Louise, 1 week ago Observation Very shallow snow pack for this time of year. We battled with lots of brush and thin covered rocks. It was very easy to punch through the new snow and old crust into the 30-50cm of rotten facets. Facets made for soft skiing but made it very easy to sink down to hidden obstacles. 1 photos Friday January 27th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Banff Yoho Kootenay, Little Yoho, Banff, East Side 93N, Kootenay, LLSA, Lake Louise, Sunshine, West Side 93N, Field Thursday January 26th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Banff Yoho Kootenay, Little Yoho, Banff, East Side 93N, Kootenay, LLSA, Lake Louise, Sunshine, West Side 93N, Field Wednesday January 25th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Banff Yoho Kootenay, Little Yoho, Banff, East Side 93N, Kootenay, LLSA, Lake Louise, Sunshine, West Side 93N, Field Wednesday January 25th Avalanche Canada, 1 week ago Forecast Regions: Banff Yoho Kootenay, Little Yoho, Banff, East Side 93N, Kootenay, LLSA, Lake Louise, Sunshine, West Side 93N, Field Tuesday January 24th Avalanche Canada, 2 weeks ago Forecast Regions: Banff Yoho Kootenay, Little Yoho, Banff, East Side 93N, Kootenay, LLSA, Lake Louise, Sunshine, West Side 93N, Field
