Glorious week in Canada

It was beautiful! At the end of the day we rode the ski lift up very high to a building and had a buffet dinner with wonderful live entertainment. Then they gave the skiers lights to put on their helmets to go down the ski run, which was quite long. The ones who weren't skiing got to ride back down the hill on a snowmobile. It was great fun!

It was about an hour ride out of Banff, past Lake Louise, and in. We rode on beautiful trails all suited up. The snowmobile even had warmers on the gears! After our beautiful, fun ride we had a home-cooked meal waiting for us in a cabin. Food was incredible!
