Halloween Ski to Egypt Lake via Healy Pass

Early morning drive through the town of Banff
With fresh snow on the ground from the season's first big storm, Meghan and I could think of nothing but skiing. This was by far the earliest I've ever skiied. I called Banff Parks and found out that the Egypt Lake Shelter was empty for the Halloween Weekend. Despite uncertain snow conditions and route finding we decided to go for it. Turned out to be an amazing trip!

Not a soul for miles around.
