Skiing from Lake Louise Ski Area to Skoki Lodge
Glacial peaks, vanishing trails, steep climbs, and apple pie
SKOKI VALLEY, Alberta - Standing above tree line at the top of Deception Pass, we could see waves of mountains rippling across a hazy landscape. Many of their rocky peaks rose so steeply, they shed snow before it could pile too high, revealing dark, ominous shapes. Behind us, we had an up-close snapshot of Ptarmigan Mountain, where glaciers clung to alpine cirques and diagonal striations looked like they had been chiseled into the rock.
