This event is intended for anyone that enjoys scrambles equivalent to Mt. Yamnuska. We will have some big adventures but the plan is never to be in a big rush.

Leaving Calgary Friday evening.We will be car camping at Chinook lake PRA. -pra/information-facilities/

Over the 3 days we will enjoy in my opinion 3 of the best scrambles in the Crowsnest Area. None of which should take longer than 5 to 7 hrs each, even if we linger at the top.

Day 1(Saturday): Turtle mtn. (Blairmore to Hillcrest loop with shuttle).12K 900M Slide-near-Blairmore-AB-1208

Day 2:Canada day! lets do my favorite of the 3. Crowsnest Mtn. 8K 1100M gain. Mountain-near-Blairmore-AB-1300

Day 3: We will pack up and head up Mt.Ward 10K 762M gain. near-Blairmore-AB-2003

We can meet at my place in the south Friday night. (address to follow) I have plenty of secure underground parking to leave vehicles. Drive out and stop on the way for a quick bite. we should get there before 8:00pm to set up camp.

Lets keep it simple and just bring our own gear and our own food. I will be bringing 2 jet boils and a Coleman stove you can use if you need it. Lets try to double up on the tents though so we can keep it to 2 campsites. Cost TBD. Camp fees, share of fuel expenses,Dont be surprised if we go for food after a hike. There are some fun restaurants and pubs in the area.

Lets all be flexible and have a great Canada day weekend!
