Great Divide Traverse, September 8th-10th, 2017
Join the Alpine Air guides for this mega classic alpine hiking traverse through the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Beginning at Moraine Lake, we will hike up and over Wenkchemna Pass to the Eagle Eyre; from there we will be hiking off trail up to Opabin Pass and descend the Opabin Glacier to Lake O’Hara. Our mountain home waits for us at The Elizabeth Parker Hut, a glass of wine and a sunset you will not forget!
Early morning on our second day we will hike the All Souls Alpine route and use the Lake Oesa, Yukness ledges connector to approach Abbott Pass where we will spend our second night.
Our decent to Lake Louise will be made via the Fuhrman Ledges to the Plain of six glaciers where we will make our way back to Lake Louise and the end of our journey.
This trip is a Scrambling/Hiking traverse which requires intermediate-advanced hiking fitness. There is off trail hiking, glacier travel and some exposure where a rope is required. Guest to Guide is 3:1
