10 Days in Banff National Park.

We had 10 days to climb, ski, snowshoe, see, do and explore as much as much of the Canadian Rockies that we could muster. I was travelling with my sister Emily Batty (2x Olympic Mountain Biker) and her husband, Adam Morka (also a ridiculously high level athlete, photographer/ videographer). Everyday was filled from before sunrise to well after sunset. We made the most out of every second and had a blast of a trip. Below is a summary of our adventures in photos. Happy Holidays!

West Trip Day 6 and 7!

Saturday we made a quick jaunt up Grotto Mountain in somewhat icy conditions. Once we crested the ridge, the winds greeted us in full force! I have forgotten how much I liked the ridge traverse from the North route to the summit of the peak. It was beautiful! 

Sunday we made a drive back the Icefields Parkway in cloudy conditions. Once we arrived at Wilcox Pass, it cleared a bit and we had dramatic light for the snowshoe up and around the pass. We didn’t see any wildlife this time, but did see lots of fresh wolf and cougar tracks in the windswept snow. Here are a few photos from the day, Cheers.
