MT COLUMBIA EXPEDITION, APRIL 26th-28th or 29th, 2019

Standing mighty and tall this is the official high point in Alberta at 3750m and buried deep within the ancient ice of the Columbia Ice fields. On the 3 day Mt Columbia expedition Mt Snowdome and Kitchner may be climbed before skiing out on the third day. Choosing a Columbia 4 day will give the group extra time for weather or a more casual approach, this is a great “mini” expedition which is great training for larger ski traverses or Mt Logan Kings Trench.

***Custom dates available***


MT Columbia’s direct neighbors and also giants rising from the Athabasca river valley; The Twins, N.3685m & S.3565m, can be climbed and skied on the same expedition or done independently. While on the Twins 4 day expedition the other high peaks in the area may be climbed which includes the Twins Tower, W. Twin, Stutfield Peak and Mt Cromwell.

***Custom dates available***


Mt Brazeau , 3500m, stands among a group of high peaks at the South end of Maligne Lake in Jasper National Park. A beautiful glaciated peak which has amazing ski runs rite from the summit, the area is more remote and less traveled than the Columbia area but offers similar challenges to the Columbia Icefields peaks. Day 1 is spent approaching a base camp at tree line near the toe of the Brazeau Icefield, day 2 will be an attempt of the South glacier route of Brazeau and potentially skiing Mt Warren, 3300m, Valad Peak, 3250m, or Mt Henry MacLeod, 3315m.

I suggest bringing light clothing of varying thicknesses that can be ‘layered’ to achieve comfort and versatility. The most important consideration for clothing is the ability to regulate temperature as you change from periods of activity to periods of rest and from the ascent to the descent.

• Warm pants (nylon blend, insulated or fleece)
• Warm shirts (not cotton)
