I was an hour early for the bus this morning. Just in case the same travellers were there again...
AND IT WAS SNOWING! Large, fluffy snowflakes that melted on the road but built up a gentle dusting on the trees and rooftops. Real Christmas card stuff.

As it happened, there were a total of eight of us in a full-sized deluxe coach with another middle-aged, ski-mad Englishman for a driver. We toured the Yoho National Park (white), couldn't see the Spiral Tunnels from the road (closed due to snow), visited Emerald Lake (frozen white) and stopped at Lake Louise ski resort for a hot chocolate (brown and white).

A lunch time check-in at the Lake Louise hotel has left me all afternoon to luxuriate in my room (another king-size bed and working internet connection) before exploring the hotel. Certainly not going outside... The gortex japara I brought as a raincoat would keep my top half dry and warm but I certainly didn't equip myself for walking in a foot of snow!
