Delaying Spring, in Lake Louise!

We had a great weekend away in the Rockies, the skiing was fun, the hotel was amazing and there was a lot of snow! Even tho Lake Louise is less than 2 hours from where we live, there was a ton of snow there! Skiing on Saturday was perfect...a fabulously sunny day and the views are incredible from the top of the lifts. Here you can see the ski runs on the mountain.

The hotel was luxurious and the food in every restaurant was world class. My sons' favorite was the gourmet hot chocolate. On Sunday we went for a 2 and 1/2 mile walk across the frozen lake , all the way to the other side and back . Along the way we saw people on cross country skis, skiing across the lake, and a horse drawn sleigh on the trail next to the lake, which I thought would be a fabulous ride at Christmas time.

As we walked further we saw 2 waterfalls that were frozen, they were that pretty shade of ice blue, so magical!
We made it all the way to the other side!

Here we are, in front of the Olympic ring ice sculpture that was in front of the hotel. Pin It

It looks and sounds magical. The frozen waterfall is awesome - it has inspired me to create a custom fiber blend batt for spinning using light turquoise, minty greens and white. Glad you had a good time!
