Cross-country Skiing Hidden Cove

The con­di­tions in ear­ly Feb­ru­ary at Maligne Lake was quite hor­rid. To intro­duce cross-country ski­ing to a friend was cru­el on this trip. Not sure how the con­di­tions are right now, so let us know by com­ment­ing below.

A lit­tle trip to the fair­ly new “Hid­den Cove” camp/rest area on Maligne lake was achieved by cross coun­try ski on crusty, wind swept and icy con­di­tions, nev­er­the­less it was still a great day to go out and get some fresh air. This camp area has a shel­ter, four tent spots and equipped with bear proof lock­ers. We sus­pect this is going to be a busy camp­site since it is only 4km from the Maligne docks.
