Wapta Traverse Photos at Pacific Alpine Guides Blog

From March 15th to March 20th, Freya Fennwood and I accompanied Tyler Reid of Pacific Alpine Guides on a ski tour of the Wapta Traverse in the Canadian Rockies. Commonly known as the “Haute Route of North America,” the Wapta is a legendary hut-to-hut traverse that follows the Continental Divide for approximately 45km. We had challenging weather and dangerous avalanche conditions for most of the trip, but we managed to pull it off nonetheless thanks to some excellent guidance on Tyler’s part. Along the way, we reached the summit of Mount Gordon, had some beautiful powder turns on the Diableret Glacier, and crossed the Balfour High Col in a whiteout. A brief writeup and some excellent photographs are available on the Pacific Alpine Guides blog: http://www.pacificalpineguides.com/winter-wapta-traverse
