Moraine Lake Road - Lake Louise


MORAINE LAKE AND THE VALLEY OF TEN PEAKS is one of the most scenic spots in the Rockies, you will get a good view into the valley from the end of the trail. After a fresh snow fall this i s usually the first trail set.

For early season this is often the first set track available, many years skiing starts in late Oct and virtually guaranteed by Nov 11
