Well, friends, the moon and the sun are not going to align for us in January. Beginning last fall, Parks Canada’s contractor began the process of rebuilding the Bow Valley Parkway at Morant's Curve, and for liability reasons, it will not be possible for us to access this portion of leg 1. For those of you who have skied leg 1, you know that this is a real pinch point on the course - the river, railway, steep embankment and road all converge at the same point. As late as today, we were allowed on site, hoping to find an alternate route, and there isn’t one. All of this to say that we cannot host the (near) annual Lake Louise to Banff Loppet and Relay in January, 2018.


According to ParksCan, the BVP will remain closed to all traffic from Baker Creek to Lake Louise until June of next year. In the meantime, Baker Creek and Castle Mountain resorts will continue to track set the 16km of trail between their sites. Please enjoy that portion of the loppet trail and the Lake Louise trails if you can. We hope to see you in 2019.
