Fernie, mountain bike

Escapando el finde was in Fernie for the weekend with some friends doing mountain bike, in one of the best places in the world.

For escapando el finde was pretty excited being in Fernie in summer to do some mountain bike trails with friends ( Daniel, Amanda, Jeff). With an excelent weather, maybe to hot we made two different season, 1º hard climbing and technical decent on "Project 9", awesome ride during 3 hours. The 2º season in "Sidewander" with super narrow trails and funny terrain was much more fun.

Sentinel Pass, Lake Moraine and Lake Eiffel

Escapando el finde during a nice Sunday went for a hike to Banff National Park to make two beautiful trails,  1º Lake Moraine plus Sentinel Pass and 2º Lake Eiffel.

In this time escapando el finde was with the Matracas ( Daniel and Dorota), Carlos and Carla. We went close to Lake Louise in a classic hike , pretty crowded but with amazing panoramic views of the Rockies.

After a nice hike to Sentinel Pass during 2,5 hours and 700 meters of elevation we decided on our way back to make a loops to the Eiffel Lake in about 1,5 hours. The most excited thing during this nice hike was that we saw a grizzly bear just 3 meters above us in the trail, so we had some moments of panic but was really cool.

Trailrunning trip, Yoho National Park, Canada

Escapando el finde take part on the Adventure Race, a field course by MEC in Yoho National Park, Canada.

This time we went with Jasmine, our guide, and some friends of work Liam and Josh for this trailrunning trip. After packing all our ultralight staff to make easier the trailrunning we start this rounded trip in the parking area of the Takakkaw Falls ( one of the biggest one in all Canada).

Jasmine planned a extremely beautiful round trip call Iceline, a easy-hard trail track with lots of things to see, glacier, woods, lakes, waterfalls, alpine terrain, huts, etc. After the first day of running we spent the night in the campground making bivouac and having fun playing cards.
