Kokanee Hut Ski Week: 13 December 2019

A week of skiing based at the iconic ACC Kokanee Glacier Cabin. This is backcountry luxury in one of the most desirable ski terrain of Canada. This trip is being ran with the Calgary section.  1 - 3 spaces remain available and are open to members of the Rocky Mountain section.

A full review of Kokannee Cabin can be found here: https://www.backcountryskiingcanada.com/Kokane e-Glacier-Cabin-Review

The trip is self guided, self catered. Further details surrounding meal planning "buddies:, travel logistics, what to bring and not to bring will be provided to those attending.

The cabin is FIFO fly-in, fly out, and flights are Saturday.  Plan on a day of travel before and after to get from Calgary to Nelson. Weather conditions could impact flying conditions so please keep this in mind.

The cabin is by far the most comfortable, well appointed, "luxurious" and nicest of the ACC huts with electricity and running water (including shower). Wow, that is fantastic

Ski terrain includes tree-line and alpine with a mix of objectives. The skiing is world famous.

We will have multiple trip leaders with a goal of multiple objectives each day based on skill, weather, your preferences, and speed of travel. One day could be dawn to dusk where others could be brunch and a few laps.

Festivity night - you bet - one night will be a themed costume event with unique food, beverages and tunes. Sorry, no midnight skiing by headlamp.

The cost is $1,099 per person if paying by EFT or $1,120 using PayPal inclusive of the service fee.

A portion of the fee goes to support the trip coordinators.

Please wait until after the Trip Coordinator has responded to you with regards to your eligibility to pay for the trip.

If you haven't skied with either of the Trip Coordinators, please email Rick Bennett at "rickbennett28@gmail.com including the following "get to know you form" filled out and a brief outline on your ski touring abilities and experience. Our goal is to accommodate a variety of skier abilities through individual daily groups. That said, to keep a smile on your face, be comfortable skiing variable snow and weather conditions.
