Learn the fundamentals of traveling safely on a glacier and discover a Gem of the Selkirk: the incredible scenery of Mount Sir Donald and the Asulkan Group.
Whether they’re the first summits of your mountaineering career or the first summits of your season, come join us on the Illecillewaet Glacier for days of skills training and peak bagging. You’ll learn new mountaineering techniques and knowledge and get hands-on practice applying what you've learnt right away.
If you have been hiking on trails but looking at the snow covered peaks or crevasse filled glaciers with longing then this camp is for you. No previous mountaineering experience necessary.
In this camp you will learn the fundamentals of mountaineering: knots, review of equipment, glacier travel principles and strategies, rope management, configurations of glacier travel, hazards, assessing and crossing crevasses, glacier morphology, anchors and other intro to crevasse rescue skills.
The Asulkan Cabin is located in a stunning location with views of the Illecillewaet Glacier and Mt Sir Donald. The hut doesn't allow for social distancing so this camp will only be offered to a "Pod". In other words a family or group of roommates or people who have already been in contact with each other.
