Checking out the Larch Webcam at Lake Louise


“Larch Cam” on Sept 24, 2013

Wondering if the alpine larch needles in the Canadian Rockies have turned gold yet? Check out the Lake Louise Gondola’s “Larch Cam”, located on the shoulder of Whitehorn Mountain near the top of the Ptarmigan Chair (2400m/7874 ft).

Peak of autumn colour is usually the third weekend of September, and judging by the current image from the webcam, the final week of the month will provide the best viewing of the season.

For the latest view from the webcam, click on the Lake Louise webcams page.

And if you are interested in hiking to this grove of larch overlooking the Bow Valley, check out the “Lift, Larches & Lunch” page on the Lake Louise Ski Resort website.
