This meeting is for those who are attending to Mount Assiniboine Multi-Day Backpacking Trip.
Mount Assiniboine Backpacking Trip
In this meeting we will discuss about the logistics of the trip, especially the following:
• Expensive Way (Recommended): Flying backpacks into Assiniboine by helicopter. It costs $2.25 per pound/flight (e.g. a 40 pound backpack will cost $90). The flight option opens up at June 27, so we may need to call them and ask for availability. This way saves us a lot of time, enabling us to do a 4 nights, 5 days trip, spending 3 full days in Assiniboine Provincial Park where the greatest hiking and scrambling takes place.
Please read the following info:
FLYING GEAR INTO ASSINIBOINE
• Cheap Way: Hiking in with backpacks, but camping half-way. In this way, we'll get to stay at Assiniboine for just 1 day, if done as a 4 nights, 5 days trip. If done as a week-long trip, then we will spend 3 days at Assiniboine.
• Permits: As well, we need to talk about getting the backcountry permits. I need to check for the commitment level.
5 of us stated availability on April 14, Monday at 6 pm, so that's when I will hold this meeting. If you cannot make it to the meeting, that's fine. I will send you the minutes from it.
