I don’t think there could be a better way to end 2011 and welcome 2012 than with great company, good food, beautiful weather and some exploring in Jasper. On New Year’s Eve I convinced back country skier Ron to throw on some skinny skis and we opted to head up to Summit Lakes. The skier trackset trail (approx 8km round trip) was very busy and it was great to see so many people enjoying the outdoors leading into the new year. It got a bit cool on the way back down, but it was well worth it! Ron got some great pics – check out the views!
