The high water damaged the off ramp towards the South. There is a 5′ deep drop that washed away the earth/gravel & it’s just as wide!!! Luckily Parks Canada got the heavy equipment down there to pull out the tree jam and let the water flow free. Thank you Parks Canada! The bridge is closed off with flagging tape & barricade. Respect it– hopefully it will get a repair to make it passable for mountain bikers/hikers and our Winter X-C skiers & sled.
Long time resident of Field—Gord Allen, passed away a few days ago in Calgary. They—his wife Vivian and their son David(Parks Canada and Field Fire Dept.) have been a wonderful asset to the community and great supporters of the Field Kicking Horse Ski Club since it’s start–in 1988.
Gord’s brother Ron(Skiing Louise), his wife Helene(ex post mistress) and son Chris(Parks Canada and our very own KHSC webmaster) also live here in Field. They are family to us also.
Denise, Mike and I have personally known both these families since the early ’80’s. Their kid’s grew up together.
The village of Field is very saddened. We send heartfelt sympathy and “Field Love” to Gord’s family at this difficult time to help you all through this. Know we hold you in our hearts. Rest in Peace Gord.

We’ve had a great snow season and we hope you have had lot’s of time to enjoy it! The parking lots & trail heads in Yoho are shutting down —as well as many others in all the mountain parks — and so will the Kicking Horse Ski Club.
Keep diligent about self isolating in your home. We hopefully can all make up for this next winter. Thank you so much for your continued support and volunteer efforts. Special thanks to Joe Nexipi–the backbone of our wonderful x-c trails in Yoho.
Stay healthy and safe at home. Marilyn/Bruce KHSC.CA
That’s all we can say–no recent fresh snow to talk about in the forecast and cannot set trails without it. The wind and cold set things up super hard and filled in many trails in Yoho. Guess it’s time to enjoy the deck!
Due to Health Safety precautions— the management decided to close the business(store & rentals) temporarily—at least until April 1 for now. Denise, Nick, Noa & Michael are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
We are still in the middle of this cold front with huge winds in Yoho. The trails are taking a beating but Joe plans to get back out there soon as the weather changes. We plan to keep up the trails even though the store is closed. Get your fresh air and skiing in. Marilyn
Last night, a bunch of Field and Lake Louise locals went out to Emerald Lake to enjoy an amazing full moon ski. The tracks on Emerald and Alluvial Fan were fantastic.
