Ice Update – May 19th, 2011

Leave a comment

Just a quick update for all of you following conditions here in the Rockies:
– there are very few ice-free lakes to date in any of the mountain parks, lakes that are currently ice-free include Vermilion Lakes in Banff and Horseshoe Lake in Jasper.
– Waterton Lakes National Park is still largely snow and ice-bound, but bears and other wildlife are out and about anyways.
– bears are out in Banff, Jasper, Yoho, and Kootenay, but no young cubs have been sighted yet in any of the parks.
– green grass is beginning to appear at lower elevation in all of the parks, with a few leaves beginning to bud in Jasper and the southern part of Kootenay National Park.
