It was delightful to meet you on the trail again Chuck!
Matthew and I went to the Stoney Creek bridge first, so sorry to miss the gang at the cabin.
I surprised myself actually finishing the 31 km Birkie, many thanks to all who encouraged me (including Dave). :-)

Yes, the four of us had a great ski too. I recognize all of you from the pictures! Lots of fun :) 'Best day ever'

The Cascade Valley was a truly amazing surprise today. After the winds on the highway, it was amazing to have none on the trial. Apart from a few small sections of wobbly tracks, it couldn’t be better.
It was great to meet you Chuck, and put a face to your name.

It was not surprising that the Banff Park trail groomer would trackset this final section of the Cascade Valley today. He has done everything else in the area in the last five days, and put Banff back on the ski destination map... Thanks Don!
Interesting how the orientation of the Cascade Valley protects it from prevailing winds... There was absolutely no wind on the trails again today, even though there were drifts on the access road. Okay, I did feel some wind as I descended into the meadow on my return... but I think that was from my own speed!
It was great to meet so many new and old friends out there, enjoying the excellent conditions.

Trackset again this morning

Really beautiful beyond the Cascade River Bridge

So nice that Diana Piggott took a break to chat while doing her version of the Virtual Birkebeiner

So much snow at Stoney that the Elk can't see us!

But Dave & Choc found a sunny perch!

Interesting chat with Walter, Gail and friends on the return... Looking forward to Walter's report.
