On Monday, April 21 2014 I joined Steven Song for an alpine ski tour up Little Temple in Lake Louise, Banff National Park. Ever since hearing about the trip from Bill Kerr, I had decided to ski it one day and was saving it for a time when other, bigger and more remote options were out of shape or not feasible. I think the word "little" in it's name fooled me into thinking that this was going to be a very easy and short day trip. Well, it IS technically pretty easy and time-wise pretty "short" but at over 1100 meters of height gain and around 20km distance, it's not really THAT short or easy! ;)
