The Powder, Peaks and Adventure of the Wapta, Without the Crowds
Crossing the Wapta Icefield east to west rather than north to south, the Bow-Yoho traverse is less well-known than the Wapta. We don't know why because this adventure offers all the same opportunities for hut to hut travel, spectacular summits, glacier travel and powder turns. It has the added bonus of being in an even more isolated and remote setting.
Starting 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. This route will take you over two new glaciers (Yoho and des Poilus) in addition to the Wapta Icefield, making it perfect for those who have been on the Wapta already and are seeking something new. Opportunities for side trips are everywhere. The Bow-Yoho itinerary could be completed by a strong party in 3 days, but the extra time allows your group to access the surrounding peaks, passes, and glaciers.
Other highlights of the trip include passing the beautiful Takakkaw Falls frozen in its winter coat, and the potential to ski both President's Pass and the Iceline Exit from the Stanley Mitchell Hut.
Let us take care of the food, accommodation and guiding arrangements and join us on this true ACC Adventure this winter!
