Mount Buller, North Ridge
Kananaskis, Alberta
October 18, 2005

Although the ascent is hardly worthy of a trip description, the full moon, clear skies and fresh snow worked together to provide fantastic scenery. It's more of an off-trail hike than a scramble and given the gentle grade, I think would make for an excellent and safe snowshoe ascent in the winter.
