If you're looking for your powder fix you've come to the right place! While there is alpine terrain amongst the nine Trophy summits, this place for me is all about the tree skiing (best snow). The runs average 300-400 vertical metres. Self-guided and self-catered. The cost is $436 which includes snowcat and hut fees. A portion of participants fees is to subsidize the trip coordinators accommodation. Stay in Clearwater, BC the night of January 15th. Snowcat into the hut on January 16th, (last 6 km is skied). Ski out on January 20th and drive back to Calgary.

Please watch the public safety video provided here before signing up.

Required Items to Bring:
A complete list of what to bring will be sent out once the group of participants has been formed.

Recommended Items to Bring:
To be discussed.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:   7 to 8 hr drive from Calgary to Clearwater, BC I usually drive thru Jasper, Mt. Robson Prov. Park and down route 5 to Clearwater. This route seems to be shorter time wise than going Route one thru Kamloops.  
Carpool Departure Time:  
Carpool Location:  
Carpool Directions:   To be determined

Managing meals: Four teams of 3 people will cook 1 meal for the whole group of 11. There is a sauna at the hut along with a means to charge rechargeable batteries.

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
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. 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.
