Itinerary:

While the family friendly Wheeler hut trip tries to figure out how to install car seats and tune out the sound of screaming children, 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.

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 part way. 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.

How to Get There:
Carpool Departure Time:   06:00 PM
Carpool Location:   Our Lady of the Assumption School
Carpool Directions:   Google's better at explaining than I am.

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

The trip's a long way out from the posting date. Plans change, I get that, but if you think you won't be able to make it, let me know early so that I can fill your spot and don't end up eating the hut fees.
*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. 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).
The Calgary Section of the Alpine Club of Canada is a not for profit / flow through course and trip provider. We organize courses and trips based on member demand and divide any costs that we incur between event attendees. In other words, we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
