Alpine touring in Waterton National Park is an
obscure place considering we have Rogers Pass,
Icefields Parkway and K Country all in our back
yard. There are great lines, trees and
ridges and if mother nature agrees, snow to be
had. Shame, the area does get hit hard with cold
weather and winds. So, plan to come with a big
sense of adventure. Popular lines include Forum,
Ridge, Rowe Bowl and SW peak of Carthew. Skiing the "Burn" is a remarkable experience! See pic!
The entire Cabin has been reserved for
our group, total 8. This is a small cozy, beautiful, restored cabin...key word COZY.
Departing February 13, we will travel to
Waterton, arrange ourselves, head down Akamina Parkway, park and ski in. Ski, eat, bevies, repeat. Return home
end of February 16.
We will plan for "cooking buddies" to prepare
group dinners. Breakfast, lunches and bevies up
to your own planning. Perhaps consider a pulk or sled which eases the load
on your shoulders and ensures a great culinary
pantry. No freeze dried meals here!
Please come with a big sense of adventure!
