Chester Lake Snowshoe
Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, Kananaskis Country
January 23, 2011
After a long day skiing at Sunshine Village, Andrew, Jenn, and Shawn took the short snowshoe trail from the Smith-Dorrien/Spray Trail (just south of the Spray Lakes). The snowshoe trail winds its way through the trees, on a completely different alignment from the summer trail. The ski trail to Chester Lake roughly follows the summer trail, which follows along the wide old roadbead.
Just past Chester Lake we continued on to the 'Elephant Rocks' where we had some hot chocolate before returning back to the trailhead. In all, the trail is about 4km each way with an elevation gain of about 350m.
