Ski tour to Observation peak glades. This is the west aspect glades south of Observation Peak. Looking to ascend to treeline with the plan for a few 200m-250m runs and planning to assess the rib above treeline for a little longer run based on conditions and snow quality. Planning for a moderate pace. The tour starts on the East side of Hwy 93N across from the Bow Summit parking lot (about 40km from Lake Louise). We will ascend about 2km and 350m before deciding on our first run. Plan for up to about 10km and 1200m day. We won’t plan on carpooling based on Covid-19 procedures.
Required Items to Bring:
Ski touring gear: skis, skins, beacon, shovel, probe, layers, lunch, water, etc. Mask and hand sanitizer.

*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.
