Ha I was there as well. Parked in the highwood lot at the top of the pass (big white chevy) . I hooked up with some people on skiis. We went east of the highway up to ptarmagin cirque I think its called. Any way snow was great. 90-100cm in places. No rocks to hit. Had a few awsome laps.

Howdy! My wife and I are finally taking the plunge this season after procrastinating for the last 8 seasons. We are noobs to splitting but have been riding pow since the 90's. Looking forward to earning our turns!
It's supposed to snow on Thursday, so maybe the season will be starting early...
Anyone interested in Wapta Glacier touring, summiting and bombing this season?
Just me, splitin, and one or two skiers from Calgary have some hut trips planned this season
First one is December 15th to 20th Day 1 - Heading up to Bow Hut, stoking the fire and drinkin Day 2 - Heading up to the glacier and summiting Saint Nicholas, then yo-yo's in the area, then drinkin Day 3 - Heading over to the Peyto Hut, summiting Rhonda South, then drinkin Day 4 - Head over to Balfour Hut, summit Olive if time permits which I am sure it will, and some more drinkin Day 5 - Head back out and down to Bow lake and drive to the nearest pub for a big cold beer
Next Round is the Classic Wapta Traverse. So far Feb 9th to 13th is the plan
After this, the Bow Hut to Stanley Mitchell Traverse. So far Mar 23rd to 27th is the plan.
If you are interested, have your AST1 and decent mountain experience let me know, I have the auto reply checked on this topic.
