The entire Lightning Strike Cabin in Kootenay Pass is booked for a week in February ($10 / per person / per night for the cabin). This area offers great access at altitude to both simple, challenging and complex backcountry terrain... with a range of great choices for most avalanche conditions. The last time I stayed in the area I skied with blower powder flying over my shoulders. We will carpool out the morning of Feb 17 for the 6-7 hour drive, park at Kootenay Pass, and then skin up to the cabin with our supplies. The Cabin is 3.3 km or about 90 minutes from where we park.

When you register please indicate the AST course(s) you have taken, years of backcountry experience, and highest difficulty level at the resort that you are comfortable skiing.

Once you are moved off the waiting list, you will have 48 hours to transfer $70 by email to thomas.n.mcmillan@gmail.com to hold your spot.

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.
