Mt. Norquay is one of the mountains overlooking Banff and those who ski are certainly familiar with it. It is supposed to be relatively short, but difficult scramble, so it won't be a trip for beginners. Weather for Sunday looks good with no rain in the forecast, therefore the scramble shouldn't harder than it needs to be. Rumour has it that in the near future acces to that area will only be via shuttle buses, so we should to go there when it is still free for all. All participants should be in good physical conditions and be able to handle difficult scrambling. Helmets on this trip are mandatory. If you don't bring one you'll sent home in shame. Those willing to participate, please, put yourself on the waiting list and I will add you manually, based on your experience and RSVP history. Group size will be limited to 6 persons.
