Ross Lake

Persuaded out of my plan to spend the day on the couch reading & preparing computer things for the roadtrip, I joined Kristy, Joel, Megan & Finn for a easy ski-tour to Ross Lake.  We just crossed into BC & Yoho National Park & set off from the Lake Ohara parking lot.  The first two kilometres were along the old Highway 1A.

We then turned up into the trees sharply & climbed the hundred or so metres up to the lake.

We got to the lake about an hour after putting our skis on, snacked, took a few photos & enjoyed the sun & warmth.

Leaving the lake we gently climbed up a hundred metres more as we traversed towards the Lake Ohara road.  Eventually, the skins came off & we cruised down through the trees to the road & then back to the car.

A very pleasant two and a half hours out in the sun.
