If you are accepted, you will be required to submit payment prior to being moved to the registered list.
The Yoho valley offers deep snow, great terrain, peaks to bag, and solitude away from the crowds! Plus, you get to return to an absolutely stunning hut each night! The only catch… It’s a 23km and 675m ski from the highway carrying a heavy pack.
Day one we will ski to the Stanley Mitchell hut. This will take 8-10+ hours depending on snow conditions and the groups fitness. The next three days will be spent climbing some peaks and getting in some great skiing! Some potential objectives include (The President, The Vise President, Mount McArthur, Isolated Peak,Kiwetinok peak, and Mount Kerr). Plus, some options for fantastic hut-side skiing! The final day will have the option for some early morning laps before making the slog back down to the vehicles.
Objectives and groups will be determined at the hut.
