Description

If you want to learn more about this traverse than I recommend picking up a copy of "Ski Trails in the Canadian Rockies" by Chic Scott and Darren Farley. Make sure you have experience with winter camping before attempting this one.

It is committing and remote.

I found Porcupine to Og to be the hardest section, both physically and mentally. Day 1 - Sunshine Parking Lot to Howard Douglas CG - distance: 12.04 km | elevation gain: 770 m Day 2 - Howard Douglas CG to OG CG - distance: 17.03 km | elevation gain: 17.03 km Day 3 - Og CG to Naiset Huts - distance: 5.16 km | elevation gain: 103 m Day 3 & 4: Ski Assiniboine area Day 5: Assiniboine to Mt Shark - distance: 25.61 km | elevation gain: 244 m
