The Classic Wapta traverse is an amazing hiking and skiing spot located in Banff National Park, in the Canadian Rockies.

Please find below a day-by-day itinerary:

DAY 1

During the first day, you have the opportunity of climbing and skiing in the great Peyto Cirque. We’ll spend the night in Peyto Hut.

DAY 2

On day two, we will start the traverse to the Balfour Hut. On the way, we will climb one or two amazing peaks.

DAY 3

The third day will be a very challenging day because we’ll reach the Balfour High Col. If the climate is on our side, we may make a summit attempt up to 3.285 meters at Mount Balfour. We’ll spend the last night in the Scott Duncan Hut.

DAY 4

During the last day, we will ski through amazing snow runs in the Bath Glacier or the Sherbrook Lake.

What People are Saying about Jeff Bullock

 

My guide was Christian from the same company (vs Jeff). I was thrilled with the service, friendliness, knowledge, and professionalism. We went to Sunshine Slab near Banff to sport climb for a half day. We managed to get a lot of memorable climbs in a short amount of time. I would gladly use these guys again.

Jeff was so kind to the kids, he encouraged and motivated our 12 y/o eldest, and was tolerant and patient with our 9 y/o young one. Extremely recommended for families. We had much fun on the Banff cliffs.
