The Stagleap area is located between Salmo + Creston, BC in Kootenay Pass. Since the highway passes through at 1800m elevation, it is an interesting jumping-off point for interesting adventures. Cornice Ridge is one such destination and is named for the cornice of snow that doesn’t melt well into the summer.

Park at Bridal Lake and signage indicates the direction to set out. The hike takes 2-3 hours on a nice day.
