|Well, the road trip was somewhat interesting. The swedes had purchased a 1981 Ford Custom truck, which was huge - so the 6 of us had no problem fitting in. However, $500 doesn't buy you much truck in this country, and as a result, the Ford:
- Had a gaping hole in the passenger side floor, big enough to spray you with road dirt
- Had no indicators
- Needed to be crash started regularly
- Had no seatbelts in the rear seats - in fact, the rear seats were just a tool box with a couple of squabs on it
Pretty fun trip - group being the 2 swedes, the 2 Guernsey boys, myself and Mic the Aussie. We met another kiwi from Fernie in Lake Louise and all rode together for a few days then everyone except Mic and myself headed back to Fernie.
Lake Louise is a massive field, spread over 3 mountain peaks. Although they are also having a rough season, the extra altitude has kept the snow base in a bit better condition. It was pretty icy initially, with quite a few moguls, but the last few days have seen a few cm of snow which is helping.
Louise also has the biggest park and superpipe I have ever seen. Have been taking it easy since wasting my back which is still not 100%.
