Please brink along your peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (or favourite alternative), a packed lunch and some snacks for both days. As wekk as two dinners and 2 breakfasts. See the Bow Hut Webpage for details on what cooking equipment the hut has.
The Bow Hut is fantastically scenic, perfectly situated and is an excellent base for exploring further onto the Wapta Icefields in winter or summer. It is the easiest and most natural route onto the Wapta and gives access to the Peyto Hut to the north, and the Balfour and Scott Duncan huts to the south. The peaks of the Wapta are an attraction for summer mountaineering as well and many climbers have learned or honed their glacier travel and crevasse rescue skills within sight of the hut. The hut itself is bright, spacious and fantastically scenic. It is the largest, best equipped and most accessible of the four huts on the Wapta.
This hut is normally a happening place with room for 30 people however your group will have an exclusive booking and the room you need to relax while keeping that nice 2 meter bubble from others on the course.
Our guiding ratio will be a maximum of 6:1 to give you plenty of one-to-one learning time with our excellent guide.
This camp is guided by ACMG-certified alpine guides.
