Description

ACCESS: From Bow hut, you have two options to access the Balfour Hut (also known as the Rob J.

Ritchie Hut).

If avalanche conditions permit you can ski tour up and under (the east side) of St.

Nicholas Peak, however the traditional route is around the west side of St.

Nicholas Peak.

The traditional route to the west of St.

Nicholas Peak requires a steep 1000' climb up the Wapta Glacier directly west of the Bow hut.
