Can't beat a winter hike in a frozen slot canyon, a fun morning out

Wife and I have been up twice, most recently in September 2016. Some snow higher up (should have taken ice grippers). Close to the top the fog completely obscured everything more than a few metres away, let alone the steep drops. I find it to be tough but I’m in my mid sixties and don’t hike enough. I know there is a great view.

This hike had my favorite ridge walk to date! I regret having my ankle boots on so am excited to tackle this again in 2018 with my salomans!!

Was a nice walk, groomed and paved trails. Dog friendly. Not my cup of tea but was nice afternoon outing.

Dec 12, 2017, need micro spikes, lots of snow at the end but still no need snow shoes due to popular trail.

Tried to hike to arnica lake this past weekend. Awesome views just past Vista lake as you go up the ridge on the opposite side, I didn't quite make it to the lake due to losing the trail and knee-high snow. I personally wouldn't do it again without snowshoes or until it's cleared out of snow a bit.

If you have very small children (baby wearing) - 5 years old this is a marvellous little hike. There are fun bridges to cross, waterfalls to see, little teepees made out of hundreds of branches hikers have put up, rock climbing up neat rocky boulders (my son calls it the moon and we walk like spacemen). It’s not too long or challenging and there’s a nice area to have a picnic in the summer(bring blankets to sit on)

We rented snow shoes and poles from the U of C outdoor centre. Worked out to about $13 a person! Great little hike, fresh air, nice steady incline at the beginning. A couple feet of snow out there. The paths are good but there is room to venture in to some fresh powder :)

Really steady hike until the last third, which was nice. Beautiful views to your back as you scramble to the top too, and the final stretch is easy if you work your way low along the snow cap. Wish we picked a less windy day!
