Forum Ridge
Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta
February 16, 2002

Distance: 10.4 km
Cumulative Elevation Gain: 630 m

Dinah and I joined the Hostel Outdoor Group to snowshoe the north ridge of Forum Peak. The access road runs to Cameron Lake, but the last 2 km was closed for winter. So we followed the ski trail to the lake before starting up the ridge. We ascended the ridge to a cliff band that stopped us from going further. Then we dropped down to the lake and returned along the shore.
