Hike! Sulphur Mountain

This trail is of moderate difficulty (because of winter) with some strenuous grades. Proper sturdy hiking boots are required. The hike is about 5.5 km one way and should take 2 - 4 hours to complete. We will hike up, spend some time at the top, and attempt to take advantage of a free gondola ride down. After the hike, perhaps we will grab some grub/drinks at a pub in the Banff townsite.  Will depend on what the group wants.

Make sure you dress for the weather! Layered clothing, toque, mitts, etc. Also, bring any snacks you desire and water to drink. We will meet at the Sirocco Drive Park and Ride at 8:15, sort out carpools and directions, and leave by 8:30.  Please bring money to split the cost of a parks pass, and fuel for the car pool.  Those who have a parks pass already, please bring it along!

I'm a fair weather winter hiker.  If the weather is unfavourable with no chance of any views, or iffy driving conditions, the event will simply be cancelled.

    Hey peeps, please update your RSVPs if you know you can no longer attend. I'm going to move everyone from the waitlist to attending so we will need some more drivers!
