We last left off awaiting Lori’s post on the Glenmore reservoir Sailing School adventure. As we awaited, I posted about our small road trip to Lake Newell. Well, I guess we are still awaiting, so I will move on to our next investigation, Ghost Lake, near Cochrane, Alberta.
The lake is a reservoir on the Bow River, withing spitting distance of the Rockies. We found it had spectacular views, a large community of boats, a sailing school and plenty of mooring availability. In other words, it ticked most of our boxes. What it is missing is the ability to go on week-long adventures, as in, no down lake areas to moor or anchor. Very beautiful, only that this is all there is. Scratch Ghost Lake.
Didn’t take to many decent pictures, but here is a video of crazy Canucks sailing Ghost Lake in November.

Looks like a beautiful calm day!
I need to find some place to rent at least a sunfish this summer.
And I know they must have some sort of keel, but if I couldn’t see it, I wouldn’t get on that boat in that cold!
It looks like a 25 or 28 foot macgregor. Definitely a keel and yes, the opposite of most people’s tropical dream. I doubt we’d do it either
