I've been hoping to do a hike in Maligne Lake area for a long time, and Bald Hills offers a perfect introductory. I got a perfect day with bluebird sky. The only downside was the considerable - considerable - moderate avalanche condition. I had to stay off steep slopes since I was soloing. Bald Hills was supposed to be done during Winter in the Mountains Course offered by ACC as a ski trip, however due to the superb condition we ended up doing Hilda Ridge. Well, if we did Bald Hills on that day, we wouldn't make to the summit though. There is not much to say about the trail itself. The beginning is very packed down so that you can carry your snowshoes here to speed up. After a while, there is a branch going left, steeply uphill. I took this one, the shortcut. You can pretty much follow the ski tracks to the alpine bowl. Remember, the summit is on your left. I didn't know this and I thought the one in front of me is higher so I ascent that one... I realized my mistake about halfway up, but since I was there, I decided to summit this little one anyway. If the avalanche condition is not considerable, I probably can traverse to the true summit, but on this day, I chose to retrace my steps down to the bowl. From the bowl, it's about 20-30min trudge to the true summit. The view is superb. I know most people don't make to here though, instead they usually turn back after breaking treeline. However, what I can tell is, the view to the other side is far more fantastic than the view towards Maligne Lake side. Return the same way. Due to similar characteristics, I would compare Bald Hills with Twin Cairns in Banff and Burstall Pass Peak in Kananaskis, and they offer unparallel views.
