We took a short jaunt into Lake Louise while we were in Banff. Hadn’t been there for quite some time, so just wanted to take a quick look. Lots of things were happening on the (mostly) frozen lake including skiing, skating and what looked like an ice carving exhibition that was just being set up. As you can see, the ice was very thin in some places, but where they were setting up for the ice carving there were actually vehicles parked on the ice. I guess it thickened up in a hurry from the open water we saw which was only a few hundred feet away.
