Default Jasper and northern Banff conditions

I hiked up the Howse River yesterday. There is hard packed snow and ice on the trail and the river flats are mostly clear, but still lots of snow off trail. I tried the old horse trail to Glacier Lake from the Howse and was struggling with lots of post holing. A few more weeks of nice weather should make it easier.

Nice! I visited Glacier Lake on the Victoria Day weekend several times, but we haven't been there in five years since we had kids. I see PC put up some Red Chairs at the viewpoint along the river since then. Hopefully in a few years we can re-establish that annual trip!

Red Adirondacks have been there for awhile. I find this Howse overlook one of best viewpoints along the Icefields corridor, at least that is so easy to hike to.


Glacier lake via Howse flats is early season classics. I plan to go there in a week or two, but this time I am taking a tent

Default Cardinal Divide

Still lots of snow on top of the Cardinal Divide near Jasper but lower down trail like Whitehorse creek are good hiking spots. very windy up there.
