It was a beautiful spring day in Waterton. The grass was starting to grow, the snow was gone. The bighorn sheep were in town laying on my friend, Brad Remington’s lawn.
2000 feet up at Little Prairie (the start of the cross country ski trail leading to Cameron Lake) there was still mounds of snow. We were going to Summit Forum Ridge and ski down into Cameron Lake. It was a beautiful day.
The best way to Summit Forum Ridge is to go to the Cameron Lake parking lot and at the little washroom building turn and head up the gully that leads to the Ridge and just climb through the trees to the Ridge and then once you get to the Ridge you will see a cut line that takes you right up to the top of the Ridge.
Once at the Ridge you can go along and try to find the best lines down. On powder days it is amazing on Forum Ridge. Today, of course, it was a little warm so it was more slushy spring skiing.
It was a crazy day in that it was hot and sunny and then snowed and then was warm and sunny again. The lake was frozen and we were able to cross the lake all the way home.
Another beautiful day in Waterton... keep hiking (skiing).
