We will drive out to see the Lake Louise Ice Magic festival and take photos. Photograph the lake, walk to the back side of the lake and view the frozen waterfall and ice climbers, skate on the lake, or enjoy a beverage and the view from the Fairmont Chateau windows and once the sun goes down we photograph the sculptures at night all lit up before returning back to Calgary. Bring warm clothes, lots of layers! Some snacks for the car, as we'll be leaving at lunch time. And boots with a good sole for walking on ice.

Schedule (approximate):
Noon-2pm: Drive to Lake Louise (car pool). We will organise car pooling when we have numbers. As per previous years, suggested gas donation for passengers $20.

Ice Magic Festival (we can catch the evening light as sunset is 5:13pm and earlier in the mountains, and after dark the sculptures are illuminated which gives a totally different look - bring a tripod for night photos). Entry is free on week days.

Various food options are available at the Fairmont Chateau.

6: Protected content Drive back to Calgary (time is approximate and may vary with different vehicles departing LL).

Optional activities: Sleigh ride, eat and drink (the ice bar isn't always open mid-week, but inside the chateau has mulled wine and big windows!). Skating (bring skates).

Parking: At Edworthy Park North Parking Lot (free and usually lots of space). Note that the #1 bus comes along Bowness Road (and others).
