The Wapta Icefields north of Lake Louise offers superb spring time ski touring and is a great introduction to ski mountaineering. We begin our trip at the Bow Hut, moving on to the Balfour Hut and our last night at the Scott Duncan hut. There are options for ski mountaineering peaks like Mt. Olive or Gordon. We usually do this as a 4 or 6 day trip.

Day 1 – Meet ski into Bow Hut
Day 2 – Bow to Balfour Hut, ascent of Mt. Olive en route
