Shunda Mountain near Nordegg for warm-up. Drive along Highway 11, turn right to RR 152A about 300m past Nordegg turnoff. Then keep left towards Shunda Hostel. In summer, turn right at the Y-junction then keep left all the way to the Gate. But for us, we had to park at the Y-junction due to the snow. Not to say driving the road, we had to break trail with snowshoe pretty much all the way from there... It's boring and tedious as the view only shows up when you topping out on the summit. There's no need to describe the route as you are following the road to the summit. Later in the afternoon, we drove to Bow Lake, slept in car at parking lot.
