A week of skiing based at the iconic ACC
Kokanee Glacier Cabin. This is backcountry
luxury in one of the most desirable ski terrain
of Canada. Yes, the Calgary Section secured the
Cabin for our members. You have heard about the
cabin, the stoke, terrain, fun and memories for
years. Join us!
A full review of Kokanee Cabin can be found
The trip is self guided, self catered. Further
details surrounding meal planning "buddies:,
travel logistics, what to bring and not to bring
will be provided to those attending.
The cabin is FIFO fly-in, fly out, and flights
are Saturday. Plan on a day of travel before and
after to get from Calgary to Nelson. Weather
conditions could impact flying conditions so
please keep this in mind.
This is opening week for the winter season for
Kokanee (read possiblee low snowpack,
but high stoke and fresh tracks, the base is
typically 2m at this time).
The cabin is by far the most comfortable, well
appointed, "luxurious" and nicest of the ACC
huts with electricity and running water
(including shower). Wow, that is fantastic
Ski terrain includes tree-line and alpine with a
mix of objectives. The skiing is world famous.
We will have multiple trip leaders with a goal of
multiple objectives each day based on skill,
weather, your preferences, and speed of travel.
One day could
be dawn to dusk where others could be brunch and
a few laps.
Festivity night - you bet - one night will be a
themed costume event with unique food, beverages
and tunes. Sorry, no midnight skiing by headlamp.
