A great three day traverse, with big lines, winter camping and likely smiles all around if the weather and avi cooperates!

Plan is meet at the Discovery Centre on Sunday morning, shuttle a car to Bostock parking lot, and then skin up to Balu Pass, drop into the valley and set up camp. Some of us will likely stay in Golden Saturday night to shorten the drive. Monday we will ski over to Catamount Pass and drop down the other side and set up camp with a goal of some turns time permitting. Tuesday we will skin up to McGill Pass and ski out.

If interested in joining the trip and we have not skied together before, send me an email with your backcountry and winter camping experience. Participants will need to be in shape for travelling with pack, plus willing to contribute to group decisions and navigation.

Sometime before the trip, please take the test for the annual permit for Rogers Pass: Ski Touring in Rogers Pass and The Winter Permit System.

Required Items to Bring:

Ski touring kit, glacier travel kit, base layers, warmth layers, hardshell pants/coat, softshell pants/coat, hut booties, sleeping bags, change of clothes, sunglasses, avalanche transceiver, probe, shovel. Hand sanitizer, gloves, mask.  

Winter camping gear plus food for 3 days.

If you have any questions or not sure what you need just ask. A gear list will be provides closer to the trip and shared gear will be coordinated among participants.

Recommended Items to Bring:

What ever makes you smile and comfortable for a weekend in the mountains!

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.
