Explore Jasper

Snowshoeing
An exploratory trip to the ridge from Pyramid lake was fun and new.
I guess venture beyond goes with this post. We found some isothermal snow, meaning the snow is constant temperature throughout the snowpack and if you step in it when it is soft, you will punch right through. Even snowshoes will not help float you. Once we cleared the tree areas to the open areas, the snow was packed better. You will run into different snowpack where ever you go, so be prepared.

At time of writing, this area was not closed.

Pyramid Lake and Ridge

The Mouse hole is what the locals call this place, obviously this area is only accessible when the conditions are right.

Snowshoe Watchtower Canyon

Exploring can be so rewarding even for a local that has lived here for so many years. Snowshoe into a new area, at least new to us.

Winter is a wonderful time to explore this area where you can roam over the frozen lake and discover some interesting areas
