Depart Calgary Friday 7AM. Ski into Peyto Hut Friday and bag one of of the closer peaks if time permits. Do two more summits on Saturday and Sunday. Return to Calgary late on Sunday. Most likely summits are Baker, Habel and Mistaya. Second choices are Trapper, Peyto or Thompson. Choices will depend on avi and weather conditions. I purposely schedule this trip for later in winter to hopefully finally get the conditions to climb some of these harder peaks many of which require bootpacking with crampons and ski mountaineering skills. The cost for this trip is $65 which includes two nights at the hut.
Required Items to Bring:
Ski gear, avi gear, glacier gear, and ice- axe/crampons and ski crampons.

How to Get There:
Carpool Departure Time:   07:00 AM
Carpool Location:   TBD
