Hey,

My friend and I are planning to go to the Canadian Rockies a month from early September to early October.

The amount of information in our help forum! So first of all thanks:)

Of course we think about landing in Calgary-banf Jasper-Vancouver (back from Vancouver).

We want to make two treks (between three and five days with tents) and we look forward to the recommendations.

What we've seen so far, recommended the Iceline Trail, Skyline trail,

Also, we wanted to ask about the equipment, how cold, how to fill water, what is the area? Some reservations are critical (and how)?

Plus, what's the weather? Will there be more? When casting begins-

In terms of our fitness, we travel a lot and fit (last year made 5 days on AV1 in lush parkland, was amazing and. tilapia:) to), but we didn't do a lot of hiking with tents.

Thanks a lot!

Generation.

Hey

Respond briefly and leave my friends to expand.

If you haven't ever runs in rough terrain and weather so problematic chose the area quite tricky and very problematic period.

1. trekking you are talking about are in the Northern Rockies and from mid-September all camping houses are closed. Snow typically begins to descend in early September even in parts of the Southern Rockies.
The Canadian Rockies are different from Americans came. The topography is difficult and should be ready for it. Let alone if you compare it to AV1 for experience.
Better get used to walking on a snow route and okrach. You should prepare carefully for these routes at this time. In late September, early October, if you have no experience except what if AV1 respect gone wild track comparison so I didn't even try to get even.

2. casting begins in late August only to realize that winter isn't coming in December to the Canadian Rockies. But at the end of September.

3. volatile weather and in September it was in season. You can fall on beautiful days and storms. There are no rules. Be cold. Dropping to minus. In early October could also be zero degrees and minus even during the day.

4. If your fitness index is likely the AV1 so I suggest you take a lot more. Probably if not carrying equipment including never. I guess on AV1 slumbered.

If I'd already started and a dream. Although snowstorms may be also in the South without any problem.

There's something very beautiful about the casting of September at all Canadians and for the amount of tourists descend.

Camping is available at the nature reserves authority. You can see it in the post I published on the GDT. Trails in North America.

You must make a reservation. Your problem is acampingim again closed in mid-September. Almost all of them.
Also because the animals.

Hope it helps in something.

We are also going to be in the summer, but some two and a half weeks starting in mid-August. So everything I write is of course based on read-only ...

Both treks I received the most recommendations on them it certainly Skyline in Jacksonville, and Berg Lake that is actually located in neighboring reserve, Mt Robson.

The Iceline Yoho reserves we will do as a day trip, a loop out and return from Takakkaw Falls. I'm not impressed that area justify a stay. (In relation to others.)

Berg Lake is relatively low, especially camping, so take that into account when planning the travel of (although it is also the most, so not sure if it works out).

Almost the first thing you want to do is make a reservation to Lake O' Hara. People usually sell their mother to take place there, but because you are out of season, you have a problem.

There is a list of the dates still available: http://www.pc.gc.ca/apps/tcond/cond_e.asp?oPark=100438 registration is via phone only, which incidentally is true for all backcountry camping parks. We use Skype.

Can also be booked only bus that comes to the Lake without sleep there. Order it online and have it check for availability yet: http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/pn-np, bc/yoho/natcul/reserve.aspx/ohara

If you are looking for other options to camping trips, Skoki area so check you can make beautiful loop, and Molar zone Pass/Fish Lakes. We do two nights lately.

We cetiideno for this new bag trip (minus 7 degrees of North Face and EMS) and three season tent lightweight (Nemo). From what you wrote above, not sure if that will be enough for a while. (We do most of our trekking in mid-August so I hope this will suffice)

Thank you for your response.

1. we looked at treks I mentioned. We didn't have ice transitions (Please correct if I am wrong and need to prepare).

2. our gym to AV1, we travel a lot, also with tents (don't expect it to be similar to AV1).

3. in terms of m I looked and saw that total rest, similar days of rain, the temperature a little bit more.

4. kimpingim saw you can order until early October.

Hey,

Sounds great! Enjoy and check away:)

Look for additional recommendations. In terms of the equipment we were going to buy something, probably in Canada and in the country (because cheaper).

The Lake already places to ohara. Try to arrive in the morning and go to route to the Lake and have probably the alpine circuit.

* We plan to buy annual membership for parks. Does it provide to travel freely? Do we both have to be friends?

There are still places for those who like to sleep at Lake O'Hara, is the first link I gave. I think, will save you rise on the road, leaves more time to walk around the Lake, save cost in the Hotel/B & B are more expensive, and of course it should be a really cool place to sleep.

We bought an annual subscription to both, it pays for those intending to be the parks more than 7-8 days or so. It's enough to * stay * in the parks, but still have to pay some more money (on average $ 10 per night) at the campgrounds and reservations to these sites.

At this stage of the season there is no chance for a seat on the bus to Lake O'Hara but based on reverts only.
It takes just to get to the box office very early and try to squeeze into the 8:30 am
If going by bus, then go up. Not to give up.

My pleasure

1. don't know what you meant for checking that there are no breaks in the ice. It's not a glacier you climb. Not the intention.

The NOTCH area, THE notorious, for example. There are very dangerous and problematic weather on ice and snow. You should be aware and prepared.

2.

3. you're wrong. And according to averages during it's worth too much especially in the last few years in terms of weather.

4. write some camping have. The shredder closes in mid-September. See what's open.

5. annual membership for parks. You should get a BACKCOUNTRY PERMIT, too. That allows you to sleep in the wild.

Of course a sack hanging food to protect the bears as well.

Lake O' Hara Availability Report

Camping Availability:

It talks about vacancies for camping at the Lake. Apparently whoever camping place mshrein also wins a place on the bus.
But not sure. The experience of recent years, whoever ordered the bus to O'Hare at least six months in advance, he had no chance.
But for all the physical bus station somehow managed to squeeze onto one of two trips this morning that there is a lot of cancellations on arrivals.

Uki. It looks like you've done some serious groundwork before the visit.
Wait for your report that since the report of me heard nothing about Lake O'Hara.

Thank you everyone for your responses.

We are wondering about the track at Berg lake.
We thought the track for three days.

Day 1-the emperor falls Center
Monday (undecided what to do)-thought to rise to Hargreaves glacier and then maybe continue to pass and then down to 4 accommodation in campsite Berglake (or shorten and Toboggan Falls Road).
Tuesday-berg-car lake campsite

We have heard many testimonials about the increase to snowbird pass but it seems a little difficult (requires to reach Berg Lake the first day) and 14 miles round trip daily.

First of all, check availability of campsites? Berg Lake is one of the most popular treks in the area, and posting it online and fills up very quickly.

See now dates, could be irrelevant because all the doubts you need to work with what's available.

This site: https://secure.camis.com/DiscoverCamping/BergLake?Map select on 1 the Berg Lake (the last option) and continue from there.

For example we couldn't get a seat on Berg Lake itself so we had to settle for one site, Marmot. And it was 4 months in advance.

Our planning is to sleep two nights in Marmot, site 17 km walk there.

The next day, back to Snowbird Pass, and on the third day back out, 17 km in decline.

You're right that walking to and from Snowbird is relatively long, but be aware you're doing it without heavy equipment.

All accommodations and cooking equipment could leave the campsite and do a track day with slight case. Quite a few people do it, so I think it's worth a shot.

If you move a little bit more on the first day the Emperor Falls beyond (assuming there are), this course will help the other day.

It's just another 3 km up to Marmot and very little increase (already behind at that point).

Updates:

We today at Lake O'Hara. Was amazing! It was a beautiful day, the peaks just crazy.
We didn't have tickets, we waited from 6:45 a.m. at a bus stop. The Lords (us another couple arrived at 7 and then a couple guys). Luckily we got on the bus for 8 and a half (and a couple more).
Did the alpine circuit without a part of the all souls was snowy.

Amnon, all I think about one of your comments in the Forum, after the Canadian Rockies, you can die in peace. So we prepared:)

From here continue on the weekend to berg lake in hope that the crime will improve and then skiilin.
