For the last several years we’ve been taking a ski vacation around the family day long weekend, usually with one or two other families that we ski with regularly. Due to the Canadian dollar tanking we definitely planned to stay in Canada, and because we have a Family Season’s Pass at Lake Louise this year it was a pretty easy decision to take advantage of that. So this we year we booked a hotel right in Lake Louise village and invited some friends to join us there!
Back in the fall we went for a hike from Moraine Lake to Larch Valley to see the Larch trees turn yellow before their needles fall off. Although a conifer, the larch is a deciduous tree and loses its needles in the fall and larch valley is an amazing place to see a valley full of the trees all changing color at the same time.
