Sunshine Meadows-Bus group

For those of us who signed up to do Sunshine Meadows.... that do not want to do Healy Pass.

PAY FOR THE BUS BEFORE YOU SIGN UP- THOSE OF YOU ALREADY SIGNED UP FOR HEALY PASS(BUS) CAN SWITCH TO THIS HIKE.

This is a 11-12 km loop with a height gain of 160m if we decide to do Quartz Hill there would be an additional height gain of 195m.

The meadows straddle the Continental Divide and the boundary between Alberta and British Columbia. Surrounded by some of the Rockies' highest peaks, the unobstructed views are beyond compare. Wildlife abound in the meadows, and the brilliance of the summer flowers and autumn larches guarantees spectacular scenery on every visit.

I am not a guide so everyone coming should do their homework and be able to help in navigation.You should also have the right clothes and gear.

Bring at least 2 liters of water, snacks, lunch, sun screen, and bug repellant.

Suggested Car Fare is 20.00 + park entrance fee + Shuttle Bus 26.00

When you sign up please let me know if you need a ride (from Shouldice) or if you are able to drive( and how many passengers you can take) If you do not put this information you may not get a ride.

No Dogs-No children

    great company and a beautiful hike. This was a hike with a minimum effort to get a maximum view points. I now understand why this hike is called Canada #1 day hike for tourists. Thanks, Candice, for organizing it and also for driving!

    Thanks CB - I called them back. We cannot pay for them in advance - they won't take it. However, she's aware that we might have a number of people from our hiking wanting to go. If we call 1-2 days before, they'll put the tkts aside in our names to 'save' them for us. Yahoo!

    That sounds great...So anyone who dose not have a ticket call Sunshine meadows bus directly to purchase a ticket for the 10 am bus Sunshine Meadows ticket office at[masked] between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm. If you are unable to reach the Sunshine Meadows ticket office because our agents are busy, please call the White Mountain Adventures main number at[masked], ext. 21 during regular business hours.

    Hi Candice, Thanks so much for your email! I emailed you back but it bounced back. Knowing now the bus is at 10 - I called them.
    They said they will put a second bus on, but we can't book it right now, the online system will only allow one bus - we need to call the day before to reserve a tkt, and get there around 9:30. Does this work for the group??

    July 15, 2012

  • Candice B.

    The bus may already be fully booked for 10am Janet.
