Slow & Steady Hikers

2nd Annual

Weekend at the Lake Louise Hostel

Sherbrooke lake Off-Trail snowshoeing.

( Lake Louise Hostel Trip attendees only please ).

 

 

 

Off-trail snowshoeing, no beginners!

12km (or more) return and about 400 meters of elevation gain.

We'll take the trail from time to time but it is planned as an Off Trail snowshoe trip for the whole day!

We'll go whereever I am pleased with depending on snow condition and avalanche risk! If I don't like it, we'll make other plans!

Be prepared to "loop around"

Be prepared to have fun.

This is a strenuous trip as we should break trail depending on snow condition but expect a good work out.

NO BEGINNERS, must be fit and understand the meaning of "crazy snowshoeing"!


Gear recommendation:

Snowshoes.

Hiking/trekking/ski poles if you need.

Warm waterproof boots.

Appropriate winter clothing piled on in layers so you can de-layer as required should be quick/easy drying breathable clothing(Try to avoid cotton especially jeans).

Water/snow proof pants.

Gaiters

Food and water for a long day (something hot like soup, tea, hot chocolate...granola bars). Please, plan for snacks too!

First aid kit, headlamp with extra batteries!

You must answer all the questions asked by your organizers.

Waivers: As per the new policy for waivers, I will bring the group waiver form with me to both the Calgary Meetup location and the trailhead. You must sign it before you will be allowed to go on this hike. You will also be asked to provide the name and phone number of an emergency contact. You are fully aware that organizers are not professional guides and you assume all responsibility for your safety and well-being. You are fully prepared with proper gear and you're physically fit to do this hike with the group.
