We did these never ending switchbacks the day after snow (enough for snowshoes at about 6k ft+) and with low hanging clouds around the lake. The beginning was an amazing hike through the dense forest with a handful of various animal tracks. We had lunch on the ridge line with the nicest viewpoint we found. We would have liked a clear submit or more view points. A lot of work for not a lot of views, but we did love being alone on the trail which has been hard to find in the Banff area.
