The Lake Louise Ski trip was without a doubt one of the most beautiful destinations our ski club has visited.  Although the trip was delayed a day because of a blizzard, it was well worth the experience. The ski area resides in mountains that are part of the Canadian Rockies. From the top of the ski trails, we found ourselves mesmerized by the 360 degree view of white cap mountains.  Our intrepid skiers enjoyed Sunshine Village Mountain and Lake Louise Mountain.

In Banff we visited the local bars and restaurants. Some restaurants served local game cuisine like elk. The town had many high end boutiques and was a great place to shop or browse. Many people also visited and enjoyed the natural springs on Sulphur Mountain. On Wednesday, most of our group went snowmobiling. On Friday we had a torch light ski run after dark on Lake Louise Mountain. Afterward we enjoyed a Torch Light Dinner and entertainment at the mountain.

Unfortunately, our trip was blemished with several medical emergencies that were not related to skiing. Maryanne Mecca developed an intestine problem and other complications that required surgery and a eight day stay at a hospital in Canada and another stay at Morristown Hospital in NJ.   Diane Bogert lost control of a snowmobile and messed up her knees when she had a head on crash with a tree. Bill Goers, Dwight Mann and Ken Fox were traveling in a rented minivan that flipped over because of icy road conditions. Ken Fox was the luckiest of the three and recovered within a few days. Bill Goers experienced a broken vertebrae bone near his neck that caused partial paralysis and is now recovering at home from a second risky operation that should help him return to a normal lifestyle. Dwight Mann broke a rib bone that punctured his lung that prevented him from flying home in a pressurized jet. His girl friend was a real trouper and flew out to Canada to take him back home by car and train. That trip home turned out to be an adventure that experienced hiccups. On behalf of the club we wish all our injured members a quick recovery.

Please be sure to attend the upcoming “End of Season Party” on May 1, 2013 at the Exchange Restaurant. An encore presentation of the ski trip will be shown during the party. The best photos have been reserved for the encore presentation and do not appear in the photos that follow.
