Wapta Traverse

About the Skiing

The crownpiece of glaciated ski tours in the Canadian Rockies, the Wapta Traverse offers hut to hut ski touring among the high peaks in Canadian Rockies. Often compared to the classic Haute Route in the European Alps, the Wapta Traverse rides the crest of Waputik Range along the border between Banff and Yoho National Parks. Travel between the huts typically takes half a day, leaving ample time to climb peaks, yo-yo powder runs on the glacier, or explore the impressive glacial landscape. All huts are equipped with kitchens and sleeping areas, meaning you’ll carry only a lightweight sleeping bag in addition to the standard ski-touring kit. Custom trip lengths allow for a Wapta Traverse that fits your budget and time constraints. So come explore the Wapta Icefields for a truly unforgettable experience!
