Evenings will be spent enjoying great food, socializing in cozy hut surroundings and resetting for the next day’s skiing. Food supplies will be carried in by porter to reduce pack weights and increase the quality and enjoyment of skiing. There will be a mix of lightweight but nutritious backpacking meals and snacks to keep you properly fuelled and hydrated for your adventure. All of our food is provided by specialized backcountry caterers based out of the Bow Valley. Check out our sample menu for full details of catering on ACC Adventures camps and courses.
Completing the Wapta wouldn't be the same without also getting the full ACC hut experience at four of our oldest and most iconic alpine huts - Peyto, Bow, Rob Ritchie (Balfour) and Scott Duncan huts. Staying here is an experience in itself with fantastic views across the mountains and communal and social dining. Guests will be expected to assist the guides with hut duties such as collecting snow for water and cooking and washing up.
Our ACMG certified ski guides will ensure your journey across the Wapta is both safe and enjoyable. Our guides will be welcome to answering questions about the region as well as everything from ski technique to gear. The maximum ratio of guides and experienced ACC amateur leaders to participants will be 5:1 to ensure participants can travel at a pace which is right for them and have the chance to ask questions.
