This is a moderate ski mountaineering objective, and while some previous backcountry skiing experience is required, this is a great trip for those looking to expand their skills, learn about ski mountaineering and enjoy a glaciated ski ascent. A moderate to high level of fitness is required to participate on this trip as an overnight pack weighing up to 50 lbs must be carried.
Guests on this trip should be intermediate downhill backcountry skiers in all conditions on either alpine touring, telemark or split board equipment. Participants do not need to be experts, however you must be able to safely descend. Previous ski touring experience on a course such as the Intro to Backcountry Skiing or the Wapta Traverse is required.
Along the Icefields Parkway, just North of Lake Louise, this majestic peak was the second Canadian Rockies 11,000er to be climbed. Standing on the summit of Mt Hector you will be following in the footsteps of some of the Canadian Rockies' most famous mountaineers: Charles Fay, Charles Thompson, and Philip Abbot. You will enjoy amazing panoramic views of the Lake Louise group and the Wapta Icefields on this ski trip.
This is a great spring ski mountaineering objective on a tall peak! To position ourselves for the summit, we will spend a night camping at the base of the glacier that leads to the summit ridge. This is great winter camping experience. Early the next morning we will enjoy the sunrise from our camp and begin our summit attempt on skis. Beautiful views and a long glacier ski run will be the reward for our efforts on this 11,000 foot classic.
