The plan is to get some great turns which is what
this area is known for. We will do the traverse in
four days. We will start at Bombi Summit, and exit
at Porto Rice Rd near Ymir, staying at the Grassy
Mountain Hut, Steed Hut, and finally the Copper
Mountain Hut on the way. The total distance is
approximately 45 km with 2500m elevation gain, and
2800m elevation loss. Further details on the
traverse can be found at:

Thursday Mar 24th and return the night of Mar

between Calgary and Nelson. Meals will be

be using a taxi service to shuttle cars. The
approximate cost will be $30.00/person. The cars
will be left at the exit point.
