    This trip is intended for skiers who are confident skiing blue and black runs. We'll do a warm-up run together so the group can level themselves and decide who they'd like to ski with for the day.

  • We will be leaving the carpool at 7:00 a.m. to arrive at the Louise ticket window patio around 9:30 AM. Please arrive a few minutes early so we can arrange carpooling and depart on time.
  • The group will meet up for lunch around 11:30 a.m. at a location agreed upon by everyone - you are welcome to bring your own lunch or buy something on the hill.
  • We'll re-group in the Lodge of Ten Peaks 2'nd floor cafeteria at 4:30 p.m. before heading back to Calgary. Because this is a group event, those who cannot wait for all to ride the gondola together, meet at lunch and at 4:30 PM, are asked to please sign up for another event.
