We will drive to the Num-ti jah lodge at Bow lake. From there, we will cross the frozen lake and venture up the canyon toward the Wapta ice field, until we reach the Bow hut, where we will spend the night. For those who have the extra energy, there is the opportunity to summit peaks like Mount Gordon or Mount Nicolas. We will be travelling for approximately 3-5 hours, covering a distance of 7 kilometers with an ascent of 450 meters.
We will traverse the Wapta ice field by way of the Gordon – Rhonda pass on our way to the Guy hut, where we will spend the night. We will be travelling for approximately 6-8 hours, covering a distance of 11 kilometers with an ascent of 950 meters.
Today we will pass through Isolated col, before enjoying a great descent to the Stanley Mitchell hut, where we will spend the night. There are also several peaks you can ascend and descend if you have the energy. Those peaks include Mount des Poilus, Isolated peak and Mount MacArthur. We will be covering a distance of 8 kilometers with an ascent of 350 meters.

Based in Canmore, Alberta, I am an IFMGA- and ACMG-certified mountain guide. I also serve in the Canadian Armed Forces and am a founding partner of the Outward Bound Veterans Program.
My mission is for you to learn the skills to be competent and independent in the backcountry. I will break down complex skill sets into individual building blocks for you to learn progressively and confidently. After learning the skills, you will get to practice them in the backcountry with my guidance or that of one of the ACMG-certified guides in my team.
