    Looks like Lake Louise is getting a new chair - saw this on facebook:


    So had a look to see where it was going and found their long range master plan was approved last year, with a whole stack new chairlifts and lodges.

    Was a work party scheduled this coming weekend for upper mtn wiring improvements, start house base, etc. With no nth american WC rounds this season, that work party was canceled. Bullet dodged.
