    driving in Canada

    The Icefields Parkway (93N) is currently closed between Lake Louise and Saskatchewan Crossing due to the current High/Extreme avalanche conditions and won't be reopening until at least Sunday morning - it is often closed in winter but generally not for quite that long at a time.

    You seem to forget that Brokeback Mountain was filmed just down the road in Kananaskis, i'm sure they would fit right in.

    I assume you mean fatality, if so the incident in question was one on of these abortions not a bike: I did some research recently wondering if there actually had been a fatbike avalanche fatality as yet, and it appears to be not the case (had found the above while doing so).

    Can someone tell me where this lake is?

    I'm pretty sure that image is procedurally generated, ie CGI and not an actual real lake.

    Skins

    The mesh skin savers can be a problem over time however, check out my pair of BD skins when I had redone the glue on just one of them: The little black bits are pieces of the skin savers plastic. I imagine newer one might be made a little better however.

    A flight duration question for the geeks..

    I have to nitpick that, commuter jets all cruise somewhere around Mach 0.8, and have always done so since the 1960s (Concorde etc aside).

    Question Best place to buy avalanche transmitters???

    I would highly recommend getting a transceiver over a transmitter if you want to be able to find anyone else.

    Northern Lights

    There has been a surprising amount of auroral activity over the last week or two. Generally the most active time of year is the shoulder season periods, ie April-May and Sept-Oct or so.

    Ok, how about this one: Probably a little too much textual context to make it easy. :P
