Hike or snowshoe to Chester Lake and perhaps up towards Galatea.
This is an easy hike that one can usually do without snowshoes by the end of December.
Takes about 4 hours return from Canmore, 5 hours max.
I postponed the trip to December 31, 2018 due to weather. As noone signed up I hiked up to Chester Lake and around a small loop through the Elephant Rocks by myself, accompanied in a few spots by other happy hikers or snowshoers. It was another perfect day: blue skies, no wind, and a tolerable temperature of about -12C. I hope you all found other ways to enjoy this perfect day for the mountains.
