After touring Banff / Calgary for most of the first day and realizing we wouldn’t have time to board, we pretty much got all of the non-boarding stuff out of the way and today was the first day waking up in Banff. We tried to make the first bus [7:50 AM pickup from our resort], but ended up watching it drive away while trying to grab our stuff and run after it. We grabbed the 8:30, and it was packed as this was a Saturday and the weekend crowds are big that come in from alberta cities. There was 5 cm of fresh snow at the base and it was pretty fun, just taking in the view was enough, and we snapped a bunch of pics because it was sunny off and on.
First ride up of the trip… into the clouds. We literally couldn’t see a thing on our first ride down, and we still ripped it through the trees and ended up right behind the hotel we’ll be staying on the 8th 😀
This picture really doesn’t do the cliff justice, better ones on Adams cam…
Get out of the way Adam… you are blocking that sweet view
If a raised pickup is a “cowboy caddie” in AB, then this must be a cowboy rolls royce
Just got back from our 2nd day at Sunshine and thats when I posted this, have some more amazing pics as today there was 11 cm of snow… on top of the 5 from yesterday…. Tomorrow (Monday) going to Lake Louise
