Please join HE Neten Rinpoche, Tenzin, and other Jam Tse Cho LIng Temple friends in Banff. We plan to visit Mount Norquay ski resort/area first, ride the ski chair lift to the top, take in the panoramic views, hike, visit interpretive trails, lunch, and so on. We can decide from there as a group to continue on or not.
When hiking in the mountains, PLEASE come prepared for Fall weather (rain, snow? wind, etc.), and bring:
-water, good hiking shoes, sun glasses, hat, sun screen, warm coat, layered clothing, mitts, a few light snacks (lunch will be in a restaurant, or bring a picnic lunch), tissue paper, …
Please meet at Jam Tse Cho Ling Temple (96 Whitehaven Cresc., N.E.), at 9am to car pool, or contact Faith – fmikkelsen.27 to make other arrangements to meet up.
NOTE: Chair lift tickets are $19 (adults), lunch will be available for purchase in one of the restaurants on the hill (summit or base), or plenty of nice areas to eat a picnic lunch, or in the base lodge if open, your choice.
