This camp takes it's participants to two hut hidden among the most looked at Mountains in the Rockies. As hard as one looks however, these huts are hard to spot. The first hut is the Neil Colgan Hut. This hut is the highest perminent habitable structure in Canada. You might be familiar with the Valley of the Ten Peaks, the peaks that surround Moraine Lake. However not everyone know about the hut just on the other side of these peaks just off the edge of the Fay Glacier. The first two nights of the camp will be spent here.
THe second night will be spent at the Lake Louise Alpine Centre Hostel. A beautiful hostel located in the small village of Lake Louise.
The final night be be spent on a hut on the side of Castle Mountain. Hundreds of people pass by this hut everyday in their vehicles and look up at Caslte Mountain, but again, few people know of the hut that hugs the cliff band half way up the mountain. This is a small climbers hut and is the perfect place to spend the night before heading up to the summit the next day.
Our guiding ratio will be a maximum of 2:1 to give you plenty of one-to-one learning time with our excellent guides. The small groups also mean that you can split up based on objectives and pacing, and get the individualized attention needed to tackle more challenging alpine rock routes.
This camp is guided by Association of Canadian Mountain Guides-certified Alpine and Apprentice Alpine guides.
