This trail is one of my most memorable outdoor experiences. Myself and two friends hiked this to saddleback and back a week after Calgary had a freak (but severe) summer snowstorm. Although it was hot (about 80F) we were knee deep in snow (which was a mind blowing experience). We could hear avalanches when we were crossing the chutes, but we didn't see any. After hiking to the saddle and having lunch, we hiked up the saddle to a peak. Absolutely gorgous views - and we found you could throw your voice around the mountain. I would recommend th short version of this hike to anybody!!
