Lake Louise

Just looking at the webcam view of Lake Louise. Any local guesses on when the ice will be gone?

In the case of an early June "ice-off" situation at Lake Louise. Can we expect that the road to Moraine Lake will be opened around the same time? Or has the opening of this road no connection to the lake being free of ice?

There is no connection between the two events. Opening of the road depends on the amount of snow and when it gets pushed aside, although the webcam for LL would be a rough indicator of how the region is warming up, but I am certainly no expert on this.

I just tried to do a dummy booking for the Lodge and note there is no indication of opening date on their website yet. The Booking system did not appear to be activated so I could not try to see when they may start booking accommodation as I could not connect to their booking system. I tried Booking.com which offered me rooms from June 2 though, but that depends if you trust third party internet sites. If the Lodge is open, so must the road be (fingers crossed).

Lake Louise is still mostly frozen, but there were open areas at the back end of the lake. If the temps stay warm, there could be a lot more break up this week and next.

One week later and Lake Louise looks still very frozen. Some free patches, but low temperatures predicted for the next days. Looks like it's gonna take a while this year...
