Sunset Meadows Backpacking


Sunset Meadows Backpacking

When: Leave Friday evening on Sept. 19th and Return Sunday night on Sept. 21

What: This is an intermediate backpacking trip to Sunset Meadows near Pinto Lake in Banff National Park. We will hike in on Friday evening (headlamps required) and arrive late at the campsite. We will attempt to summit Mount Coleman on Saturday (weather permitting), those who do not wish to hike to the summit can remain at the campsite. Helmets and mountaineering axes will be required to reach the summit. On Sunday we will go on a small day hike before returning to the cars.

Most equipment necessary for the trip can be borrowed from the club, however we do require participants to bring their own sturdy hiking boots. Anything less will not be accepted since a good pair of hiking boots is critical to prevent injuries.

Sign up date: Thursday September 11 at 5pm, in the club office (Education South B-65H)

Cost: $25
