Description

Breath in the pure air at the pinnacle of the Canadian Rockies and spend a day ski mountaineering on Mt. Hector! Enjoy a guided program just north of Lake Louise in one of the most scenic areas of Alberta and take advantage of its panoramic splendor!

At 11,135 feet, Mt. Hector holds a special place in Banff National Park regarding both its beauty and prominence. Not only is it a challenging objective for mountaineers, climbers, and skiers alike, but it holds alluring views of the Lake Louise group of mountains and the Wapta Icefields from its indomitable crags. For ski mountaineers seeking the ultimate thrill, Mt. Hector is the best of both worlds.

With its unparalleled amalgamation of excitement and reward, you will spend a day working your way up its glaciated and crevassed terrain. The journey up will include some technical aspects as well as classic traversing techniques, satisfying even the wiliest and most experienced mountaineers.

Your successful summit takes in the surrounding views of Lake Louise, Mt. Temple and Mt. Victoria, and the ever-impressive Wapta Icefield. You will feel the cultural immensity of the Rockies and Banff from the top of this pristine Canadian wilderness. Finding a route along this rock is well-worth the effort and an electrifying alpine experience.

Just because the climb is over doesn’t mean the fun has to be. The descent includes over 1,500 meters of glacier skiing in that perfect powder that Canada is known for. It is the only way to cap off a thrilling day climbing a classic tour in the Rocky Mountains.

This trip seamlessly blends exciting challenges with unencumbered fun, which requires some previous backcountry skiing experience. You should be in good shape and be mentally prepared for the task at hand. For anyone ski mountaineers looking to gain invaluable experience and build on their abilities, this one’s for you.

Book this AMAZING ski mountaineering program NOW to experience the wonder of Canada and its wilderness from the top of Mt. Hector in the heart of the Rockies!

We can also try a four-day hut-to-hut traverse of the Wapta, for you frisky mountaineers out there! Or we can really test our might and take on an 11-day program from the Bugaboos to Rogers Pass…

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!
