Mt Assiniboine is a great example of what sits in your back yard when you live in Banff.  It is located between a local ski resort and Canmore.  In summer months you are even able to walk to the mountain from the ski resort.  This was not an option with the recent floods having taken out the trail leaving us to walk out the same way we had walked in.

While I was keen to remove items from my Canadian bucket list by seeing Assiniboine in the flesh I realised that I really wanted to climb it.

So now I have added climbing Mt Assiniboine to my list.
