This is one of the premier ski mountaineering trips in the Canadian Rockies. The scenery is superb and the skiing can be outstanding. This time I'm trying to ski some glaceirs and some lines that we missed last year. We will meet at the Lake Louise Hostel on Sunday night 4/15. Monday ski into the Bow Hut, brush up on crevasse rescue and do some skiing. Tuesday ski Mt. Rhonda and go to the Peyto hut. Wednesday, ski to top of Mt Gordon and then to the Balfour hut. Thurrsday, Ski the Diableret Glacier and return to the balfour hut. Friday, Ski the Balfour Glacier and go to the Scott Duncan hut. Saturday, ski the Ballfour glacier and out over Hector lake. Each participant will be responsible for getting thier own reservations and wilderness pass from the Alpine Club of Canada. Becoming a memeber may save you some money. Do not make reservations until you have received the leaders permission to go along. Their phone number is 403-678-3200.
