Canadian Rockies: Christmas on the piste

I’ve been in the Canadian Rockies now for a week, skiing and doing the odd bit of walking.  There couldn’t be a much greater contrast with summer in the Greek islands.  But, after heavy overnight snowfall on the mountain, early on Christmas Eve the cloud moved away and one thing the two places had in common was blue sky.  Idyllic.

Happy Christmas.
