A fun snowshoe in Kananaskis with a sled descent.

Now that it seems the secret is out, I don’t mind telling you Blueberry hill is one of my favorite snowshoes. This is the start, on the right, It gets better I promise!

 

The trail meets up with a cross country ski trail and follows it for a while, which is boring, but I promise it gets better!

 

The trail then follows a power line up a hill but it gets better, seriously!

 

Finally, the trail turns off into the forest and things improve dramatically.

 

This is a winter only trail so it changes every year depending on who cuts the first trail after the first snow fall.

 

I once offered Zane Davies $20 to ride a sled off this cliff. He thought about it for much longer than a sane person should have.

 

The views start to open up a bit.

Cheers nature.

 

B-ri and I went up the small peak in the foreground last summer.

 

Traditional Summit Selfie!

 

 

Some weather starts rolling in from the west. I decide it is time to make my departure.

 

The picture doesn’t show it, but the descent is steep enough to sled. I regret not bringing my sled this time.

A video from the time I did:
