The Slow Melt

One place in the Rocky Mountains that try’s hard to keep winter going is Lake Louise. The Lake is located at an elevation of 1,750 metres (or 5,760 feet) and experiences a subarctic climate. Lake Louise enjoys an annual (average) snowfall of 304cm (or 3.3m or 10 feet). Winter temperatures below −50°C have been recorded. Summers consist of frosty mornings and crisp, cool days. Snow can occur in any month of the year and the Lake will thaw sometime in early June.
