Participant Fee: $15.00/participant
Reservation Fee: $23.30/participant
Gondola fee to be confirmed. The gondola ride from Sunshine Village to the top of the Village saves almost 6 km of hiking.
Fees may be made through PayPal or by Financial Institution email transfer.
This outing begins at Sunshine Village where we take a gondola to the top of Sunshine Village. From there we can take a detour to Rock Isle Lake for pictures or just hike straight on to Howard Douglas Lake. Howard may not be a primary destination for most campers as it is on Citadel Pass Trail that lead to Mount Assiniboine (an epic destination, maybe for next season) amongst other destinations. The Howard area looks beautiful, though.
