The plan is to head out to the Spray Lakes area of Kananaskis and ski tour the Rummel to Chester Lakes summer trail. The tour will be about 10km trailhead to trailhead with 400m of elevation gain and we will arrange a short shuttle for the stretch along the road. Please ensure you have an adequate fitness level prior to signing up. We will try to move at a moderate pace and the focus will be getting used to our gear and focusing on the terrain around us as we go. As part of the BITS program we will email a short list of questions to be answered prior to being moved from the waiting list if you have not skied with one of us.
