This trip was rescheduled from March 2020 to March 2021 and again to April 2021 due to Covid-19 restrictions!

A classic traverse with superb skiing on route. This time of year can bring long sunny days of t-shirt skiing or swing to a mind numbing whiteout. Come with a sense of adventure and prepared to take a rope for a walk for hours on end. Fingers crossed Ullr will be on our side yet be prepared for some walking (in boots) during the long ski out to either Field or Emerald Lake.

All huts are exclusive to our group with a reduced maximum capacity of 10. So that means plenty of elbow room for comfort and safety. If you have been to Bow Hut and experienced full capacity you know how comfortable a group of 10 will be to all. Where are we staying? From the modern to the historic and in between. 5 Nights: 1 night Bow Hut, 2 nights Guy Hut and 2 nights Stanley Mitchell.

This is not a fast paced trip, rather moderate, enjoy ourselves and if you prefer racing to the mountain top for a personal best, perhaps this is not the trip for you? Steady and safe. Please come with a big sense of adventure and laughter.

We will travel as two groups of five. If you a trip leader or emerging trip leader and wish to help organize or be a rope lead, stick up your hand, let me know. A group of 10 will require multiple leaders.

So how to do I join the trip?

First place your name on the wait list.

If you have not skied the Trip Leader please email Rick at "" an outline of your ski touring abilities, training, glacier travel and overall experience. Our goal is to safely accommodate a variety of abilities. That said, to keep a smile on your face, be comfortable skiing in variable snow and weather.

The cost is approx $219 per person. At a later date the price will be adjusted up to include wilderness passes.

Please wait until after the Trip Leader has responded to you with regards to your eligibility and then to pay for the trip.

Payment can be made using the PayPal button below. Please send your Paypal confirmation copy by email to the Trip Leader

Required Items to Bring:
Whatever makes you comfortable and smile. Overnight gear, food for hut, backcountry ski touring kit, glacier travel kit.

Please note: $10 of the trip fee is going to support trip leader training within the club. Why? Because we have lots of demand for trips and need more good trip leaders to fill the demand. We hope you will support this initiative.

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. 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.
