On Saturday, April 22 I finally managed a long time goal of mine - skiing Mount Turner in Banff National Park near the Mount Assiniboine, Bryant Creek and the Spray River area. I knew already for years that Mount Turner could be skied or snowshoed and it was in the plans for nearly every spring over the past 5 years or so. Steven did it in January on a very cold day on snowshoes. The views from his trip were inspiring but not the slog that he described. I decided that if I was doing Turner with snow, I was skiing it.
