*** THIS IS GOOD TRIP FOR FIT HIKERS WANTING TO TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL AND EXPERIENCE BACKCOUNTRY HUTS ***

I have booked 8 spots at ACC’s Bow Hut for 2 nights. We will hike in with sleeping bags, clothes, and food and spend three days and two nights surrounded by incredible scenery. Bow Hut is one of four ACC huts on the Wapta Icefields. In the summer it can be reached without much technical skill. In the shoulder season it can be trickier. Bow Hut is perched high on a cliff below Bow Glacier. The approach is just a steep hike. I go there every summer and know the hike and approach well. Email me if you have questions. Bow Hut has a fully equipped kitchen. We don’t have to carry any cooking implements or utensils.

We will spend the afternoons scrambling or socializing (depending on what people want to do). At night we can sit by the fire, do some photography, play board games, etc.

I will keep everyone on the waiting list until spots are confirmed via payment.

PLEASE DO NOT PAY THE COC OR ACC. I have paid the booking fees and made reservations on my credit card and will pay ACC the full amount.

The cost is ~$50 per person per night + park pass (or $) + carpool cost. It will be $10 per night less if you are an ACC member (I will need your membership # to get member rates from ACC). It will be ~$10 per night less if you have a Parks Canada backcountry annual pass.

Waiting List

Sorry, either registration for this event is closed, or the event is full.

BUT you may still have a chance to go. Some volunteers will decide to expand the maximum, or others on the confirmed list will cancel. Don't let a full event keep you from signing up.

If you are a COC Member, you may add yourself to the Waiting List here.
Note that if the event maximum has not been reached, but you are still seeing this box, it is because the maximum was reached at one point and there are already others ahead of you on the list.
