While the family friendly Wheeler hut sorts their stuff out we'll be blasting down the road to K- Country. 18+, we're bringing food, beer and foods high in saturated fats. The goal is to tour in Friday night under the cover of stars, have a beer, spend Saturday exploring the area, get back to the hut and have beer and a giant communal meal, and then after a bacon intensive breakfast make good enough time out on Sunday that we can detour through Canmore to grab a burger and brew somewhere. Bring a full growler, refill in Canmore. It's early season so our options are a crap shoot. We may bring rock skis, we may bring ice tools, we may bring trail runners if things are really terrible. Be a boyscout, be prepared; we'll discuss conditions closer to the date. This trip is open to anyone - there's no real avi exposure on the way in and the trails are groomed. If you can walk ~10km, you're good to go. You should still be prepared to be involved in your own safety decisions, but we'll have experienced people happy to answer questions.
Required Items to Bring:
Who knows, it's early season. Bank on ski touring gear (including full avi kit). If something else is called for you'll get a panic stricken email from me.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Sleeping bag, food, beverages.

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons. The Calgary Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
