The return of the Elk Lakes Cabin trip is here! Join us for a reprise of last years' very enjoyable multi-day trip.
It is a great opportunity to ski into a fully equipped ACC cabin at the Elk Lakes in BC.

We will start from Elk Pass parking lot near the Kananaskis Lakes and ski up and over the top of Elk Pass.
From the top of the pass to the cabin is mostly gentle downhill grades. The total distance to the cabin is 11 km. 
Once established at the cabin we can spend the remainder of the day skiing or enjoying the cozy cabin.
The following day there are many scenic options for skiing in the area. 
Trails are skier set at Elk lakes. There are no groomed trails.
Depending upon snow conditions we may ski back to the parking lot
via Fox Lake. Please refer to the map below.
