I have booked 10 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. The hut is perched high on a cliff below Bow Glacier. The approach is just a steep hike. Bow Hut has a fully equipped kitchen so we don’t have to carry any cooking implements or utensils.

We will spend the afternoons scrambling and evenings socializing.

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 # and expiry date to get member rates from ACC).

Required Items to Bring:

Rock helmet
Sleeping bag
Warm clothes, gloves, mitts, toque
Toilet Paper

This is based on $0.15/Km for maintenance, plus current gas price divide by 9. Note that drivers with large vehicles have the option to adjust this cost based on their vehicles. Your carpool driver will confirm exactly how much money they require to cover costs. Please split the actual amount among all people in the vehicle and bring some change as drivers are not expected to carry change.
