Starting our camp at Bow Lake, we will spend two nights at the Bow Hut, two at the new Louise & Richard Guy Hut and two at the classic Stanley Mitchell Hut.

Everyone on our camp will travel across the icefields together, but there will also be a great deal of flexibility. The camp can be ... Details

The classic Six Pass Route south of Jasper is a full-value ski traverse that includes skis-off scrambles, descents to valley bottom, and the potential to ski laps on nice open slopes. This trip provides relatively mellow terrain appropriate for heavier packs, and has a true wilderness feel. While a popular tourist area in the summer, Maligne Lake feels much more remote in the winter. We’ll start the traverse by shuttling the ever-important end-of-route car to the Maligne Lake Parking ... Details
