First, we’ll meet in Lake Louise at the Alpine Center, get organized and go to Bow Lake to start the adventure.
Afterwards, we’ll go through a 1 hour avalanche rescue exercise.
Over the next 3-4 hours we will ascend up to Bow Hut for the first night.
We’ll wake up early and ski across the Wapta Ice field to the Yoho Glacier and the high lands of Mt Collie.
This leads us to a great ski run down to the Des Poilus glacier and down to the Des Poilus Hut.
We will ascend the Isolated Col and enjoy an excellent ski descent to the Stanley Mitchel Hut.
You’ll have the opportunity to ski Mt Mc Aurther (3015 m), and incredible glaciated ski descents.
We will spend this day skiing along the Little Yoho Valley with great and important ski mountaineering objectives, close to the Presidents (3140 m).
During the last day, we will make our way along the Ice line trail traversing the full length of the Presidents and head into Yoho Pass which, finally, takes us to Emerald Lake which will mark the end of a great adventure!
