Cascade Fire Road to Warden's Cabin

Trip date: Sunday Jan 22, 2023

Submitted by Helen Read


Barely a half dozen skiers seen all Sunday.....


Had no expectations on great conditions, especially as I'd rate the initial road to meadow at 4/10, but next section to first bridge was at least 6+/10 and beyond, an 8/10. Met a couple of gals, Maria and Moira from Calgary who had not been to the Cabin before and Moira was doing amazingly well considering she just got her first pr of skis!! Both had skin skis while my light blue wax needed some topping up for the return. We did not see a soul on our return to the first bridge, and I'd describe the tracks as somewhat a combo of a bobble-head Geisha girl and a few spots which were land mines of pine cones. -6 to start and -1 to finish on this bluebird day. That Carleton cabin can certainly boast the best "curb appeal" of any Warden's cabin I have skied or hiked to. Late post as attended excellent Avalanche Awareness presentation at Banff Centre tonight.
