Itinerary:
This will be an easy paced tour to the top of Richardson's Ridge for some scenery, and, as conditions allow, a fine "black diamond" NE- aspect run down Corral Creeek#3 on sparsely treed ribs to near the Skoki Trail half-way hut (there are mellower down-track options, too). The route is described in the "Lake Louise Sunshine Banff Ski Touring Guide": http://backcountryskiingcanada.com/Backcountry- Skiing-Lake-Louise-Ski-Resort. Be prepared for a wee bit (50 vertical ft or so) of boot-packing up a windward col to gain the ridge top. Have fun with it, its an easy paced trip. Trip is about 7 km in with 840 m elevation gain, with a short and flat skin-out to Skoki Trail and a nice easy ski-out all the way back to the cars. The easy and fast ski-out gives us lots of time to enjoy the scenery.
Required Items to Bring:
Skis/split-board,3 antennae beacon, probe and shovel. The usual clothing layers, lunch, water.
