Trip Report

After reading a number of trip reports over the years on Emerald Peak in Yoho National Park, I was fairly certain I wanted to ski this summit. A favorite summit shot looking straight down the 4000 foot avy path to Emerald Lake is usually captioned with "can you imagine this on SKI's?!". Yes, now I can! And it's pretty spectacular my friend.
