A small group of skiers ventured out Saturday April 23rd on an unscheduled trip to Lake Louise for passholder appreciation. I don't think they could turn down the idea of a free lunch.
They were blessed with fresh snow, warm temperatures, good company and that free lunch.

The Club celebrated the end of winter with a day of cross country, down hill, snowshoeing and hiking. The day ended with a dinner in Banff with a slide show of pictures from our winter events, followed by a visit to a local Banff Karaoke bar for further fun and frivolity.
While there are still a few more weeks of skiing, we are in the planning our schedule of summer hikes, bikes and kayaks.

On Thursday Dec 10, 2020, 10 hardy souls set out to ski the bowls and chutes of Lake Louise Ski Resort - socially distanced of course. After an initial run together we managed to get confused and break into several groups. We totally lost one skier who may yet be looking for for the yellow jacket. If you made it home John Preston, let us know.!!! With a mix of new and long time members and a range of ages from 28 to 78, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Conditions were good, company was great We will do it again as soon as the restrictions are lifted.

It was a great hike on a beautiful morning, especially with the Chinook arch and the pinkish sky! Ten adults, one dog and a special baby guest set out for a three-hour tour. The weather wasn’t rough at all as the fearless crew set forth. The hills started getting tall, the dales were very deep. We passed by falls and ducks and dogs, while the baby slept. Everyone had a fabulous time.

Thanks for organizing, Cindy

Thanks to the Cindy for our trek to Grassi Lakes! I have titled this photo WWT: “Well Worth the Trek”! I watched people hesitate to climb the steps past the last gate but was very pleased when I did……what a reward! The beauty of The lakes really was awe inspiring…..the colors!

Grassi Lakes was uphill but manageable for anyone….just set your pace. All in the hike was around three hours not including lunch and stops to admire along the way. As always for me, it was great to meet new people and have the opportunity to have companionship for the trek. Well worth the stop in Canmore for the bakery before saying goodbye to companions! Looking forward to the next hike!

13 Calgary Ski Club cyclists met at Griffith Woods Park and completed a warmup ride to the west end of the park and back. Griffith Woods Park is a primarily natural environment park that lies between the banks of the Elbow River and the residential area of Discovery Ridge. It's a jewel in Calgary’s Park system with so many natural springs, vegetation, and wildlife.

The group then proceeded north through the community of Sienna Hills, then northwest through the connected pathways up to Signal Hill, stopping for a photo op at Battalion Park. From there we huffed and puffed on the bicycle trail to the residential community of Coach Hill, again cycling through the connected pathways with a final push to the top of Broadcast Hill, the home of CTV Calgary where we stopped for another photo op and water break. We were also rewarded with views of the city that we normally don’t see.

Bob Wilson, our group leader, guided the group back to our starting point crossing over to 69th Street SW
