Alberta Snapshot: Chinook Lake trek.

FP AC Normandeau2

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?


  1. Looks like one of my favorite local places to xcountry ski–sans the mountains. If there is the right configuration of clouds sometimes I can just imagine there are mountains out there.

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
