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: p=page&page_id=Bonningtons Information on the huts can be found at: The cost of the huts is $35/person. We will leave Calgary Thursday Mar 24th and return the night of Mar 28th. We will spend one night in a motel somewhere between Calgary and Nelson. Meals will be discussed amongst the group at later date. We will 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.
Required Items to Bring:
Skis, boots, poles, beacon, probe, shovel, sleeping bag, sleeping mat, warm clothes, possibly ski crampons. As a group we will need to bring fuel for the stoves.

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

If you cancel from the trip you might not get your money back.
*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.
