6 days of backcountry skiing at some sweet spots in west Kootenay. There will be complex avalanche terrain. 1 night of winter camping if not too cold ie-15 (it's much milder out there than Alberta). This is so we can ski summit Mt Brennan and enjoy a >1500 vertical meter powder ski decent

DAY 1: On the drive out we'll stretch the legs with a ski tour at Kootenay Pass, spending the night at Hotel Ymir. Take in the Friday night Hillbilly Jam session and dinner special in the pub.
DAYS 2-5: Day trips based out of B&B near Kaslo, minutes from ski objectives. Winter camp for one night.
DAY 6: Stop for more turns at Kootenay Pass or elsewheres on the drive back to Alberta.

Accommodations approx $30/night for hotel Ymir and B&B.

Winter camping experience not required but you need suitable gear. I can help with any questions.

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.
