Watch Skiers on the Wapta Traverse in Winter

Watch skiers on the full Wapta Traverse in the Canadian Rockies, which goes from Alberta at Banff National Park, starting at Peyto Lake to British Columbia at Yoho National Park, ending at Sherbrooke Lake.

“What an adventure! Powder snow, expansive glaciers, intimidating ski climbs through crevasse fields and below ice seracs.” There are four huts run by the Alpine Club of Canada that you can stay during your traverse.

The ACC notes the traverse as: “The Wapta Traverse is perhaps the most iconic multi-day ski tour in North America. A journey in the truest sense of the word, you will travel hut-to-hut across the length of the Wapta and Waputik Icefields with the opportunity to climb ski mountaineering summits and cut deep powder turns along the way.”
