Pharaoh Trees, South Pharaoh Peak
Ball Range - Alberta - Canada
Banff National Park

For information to access the starting point for Pharaoh Trees, on South Pharaoh Peak, please see the Egypt Lake ski zone page.


Like most of the tree runs in the Egypt Lake area you will get a mix of thicker trees between decently spaced trees. This area is less of a destination and more of a way to end the day from Pharaoh or Black Rock Lakes in order to get back to Egypt Lake Shelter.

Directions:
From Egypt Lake Shelter head directly west into the trees. You will come to a clearing where you will want to head north-west into the next set of trees. You should be able to see the trim line from the runout zone of the east facing avalanche paths, heading north follow this trim line staying within the forest, if you can, until you reach Pharaoh Lake.

From Pharaoh Lake ski down north of the main drainage heading east into the forest. To the south of the main drainage is the Shelter Trees run.

After skiing the trees head east a short distance to find yourself at Pharaoh Creek with Egypt Lake Shelter to the south.
