This will be a relaxing fun event and we will be traveling at a moderate pace (speed demons please choose another event).

From the parking lot behind the Banff Springs Hotel we will travel on the West side of the Spray river loop to the picnic tables (~6km) and then on to the junction with the Goat Creek Trail (~10km). We will ski the Goat Creek Trail for a couple of kms to the bridge over Goat Creek (~12km). We will return the way we came to the picnic tables and then ski back to the cars along the east side of the Spray River.

This ski is for intermediate skiers and the group may be split up depending on skier speed and how much people want to ski. This event is not for absolute beginner skiers.
