Lake O'Hara Ski
Dan Millar, Kelly Wood and I skied into Lake O'Hara
in Yoho National Park on 16 February 2002. This was my second ski trip
into the area, and on both occasions, the weather and snow conditions were
outstanding. We had no difficulties on the way in and enjoyed a well-deserved
lunch break on the 'docks' near Lake O'Hara Lodge. After lunch, we
circumnavigated the lake before taking the fast and exciting downhill run
back to the trailhead.
The morning sunlight accentuates
the frost on the trees.

cliffs on the far side of the lake.
