My hubby and I made a quick dash to the Crowsnest Pass a couple of weeks ago, and spent a Friday morning and afternoon hiking through the beautiful forest that surrounds Chinook Lake. The area boasts an active cross-country ski club and an extensive trail system suitable for all skill levels. (Although the “difficult” trails that currently feature fallen trees may be taking things a bit too far, LOL! We could easily hike around the obstructions, and I imagine they’ll be cleared away before the snow flies). I would love to ski here…can you imagine this place decorated with freshly-fallen snow?
