You don’t have many choices when it’s snowing all the way from Canmore to Jasper, and the avalanche danger is rated “High”. But I still wanted to go out and do a hike. So we ended up heading to Elk Island National Park again, and do the longest trail, Wood Bison Trail. Due to the recent heavy snowfall, the trail is covered in about 40cm snow, so I snowshoed up the whole 16.5km. Well, it’s not particularly slow, but it’s definitely more physically demanding. I guess snowshoeing uphill and downhill is easier than on flat ground. This trail is definitely your choice if you want to see bisons. We did manage to see 4 groups of bisons.
