Mount Tupper to Close to Blow Up Bombs

The area will be closed on Aug. 21 and 22

Mount Tupper

Mount Tupper is a popular alpine peak in Glacier National Park, B.C., with a number of classic routes. Parks Canada is closing the peak on Aug. 21 and 22 to detonate unexploded bombs from the avalanche season.

“Please be advised that all climbing routes on Mt Tupper in Glacier National Park will be closed August 21 and 22. Parks Canada, in conjunction with the Canadian military, will be detonating several unexploded ordinances on Mt Tupper and need to be certain that all park visitors are clear of the blast zone. The area closure is the same as the Tupper winter permit area. The Hermit campground and routes on the Swiss Peaks will still be accessible. See attached photo.”
