As anyone done the Jasper to Lake Louise ski traverse in the past? We're planning it for March 2010 and would welcome any info or comments you have on this.

We're a party of 3 and at least one of us is planning on using a sled ( tried and tested in extreme trails).

The route is about 300 km, the plan is for 3 ressuplies (one heli) and 30 days, the goal being to relax and have fun with plenty of time for days off, side trips or waiting out the weather, not performance.

2 of us have already done the Wapta traverse and we're all experienced winter campers.

Planning the trip is half the fun!

I haven't done this trip, but I just wanted to say that it sounds like a great trip, Franc.

I hope you get all the info you need for next year and share a trip report with photos after the fact. Jasper and that whole area are favorites of mine.

Wow. Sounds like an absolutely fantastic trip. Wish I could give you some help/info, but alas, all I can do is sit here in quiet envy.....
