Head up the road to the Lake Louise Ski Area, you will see a road to the right marked “Creek”. About 1 km up the road it is blocked and there is a parking area to the right. Alternatively you can ride the Gondola at the ski area and ski over to Temple Lodge and pick the trail up there.
From Creek parking you ski up the ski out to Temple Lodge, the trail passes just above the lodge and is easy to follow to the Halfway Hut. After that you have a rocky climb across a lake, then up the pass on the left. This is usually well skied but can be tough to follow in snow or white outs as you are on terrain with little markings. Over the pass it is an easy slide down to the lodge.
