We have the entire Wheeler Hut for a long weekend ski & apre-ski (Saturday and Sunday nights). 

Cost is $115 per person.

Peak season Rogers Pass powder will be there for our enjoyment and review.

A coordinated-pot-luck group dinner feast is planned for Sunday evening. 

Sunday is costume day.  Beach boy surfer, volleyball champ or nerdy tourist, dress for the beach!  After dinner there will be prizes.  : -)

Attendees must be self sufficient in backcountry skiing and preferably be prepared to lead trips.

Required Items to Bring:

The usual daytrip gear plus overnight gear (sleeping pad is provided at the hut and kitchen is fully stocked), your food and your costume.

Recommended Items to Bring:

Anything you can drag to the hut for your creature comfort.  Don't forget refreshments for the Sunday party.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:  

It is an easy skin in to the hut, about 1.5 km mostly on the old flat railway bed.  The trailhead is at the Illecillewaet/Asulkan Valley parking lot (zoom out for perspective):  Trailhead Location

The hut location is at:  Wheeler Hut Location

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.
