Ski tour to Wolverine ridge. Looking to ascend Wolverine ridge and descend from the ridge based on conditions, with the option for another lap based on the group and day. Planning for a moderate pace. The tour starts at the Fish Creek parking lot near Lake Louise ski resort. We will ascend the ski out about 4km to above Temple Lodge before turning off to the Wolverine valley. Expect 7-8km and 800m gain to the ridge, with more depending on our choice for laps. Based on Covid-19 procedures, we'll meet at the trailhead.
Required Items to Bring:
ski touring gear: skis, skins, beacon, shovel, probe, layers, lunch, water, etc. Mask and hand sanitizer.
