Trailhead:  Pocaterra Day Use Area

Driving Distance to Trailhead: 130 km one way

Special Covid-19 precautions: - wear masks in enclosed areas, including in vehicles if you are car-pooling.  Car-pooling is an individual decision.  Those wishing to take part in after-ski indoor activities in bars and/or restaurants will be required to have their Proof of Covid-19 Vaccination,   (Alberta Covid Records)

Difficulty:  This is a "Low Moderate" trail - it has many easy parts but there are some sections where a good snowplow technique will be needed.

Important Note:  each vehicle will be required to have a Kananaskis parking pass (which, when purchased, works on the vehicle licence plate number)

What to Bring:  layered warm clothing, pack with lunch and fluid, sunglasses, wax kit if you are using waxable skis, first aid kit.

Car Pool Cost: This currently suggested value is six cents per kilometre (total distance) per person but may have to be increased due to rising oil prices.  This page will be updated before the trip if and when the Club suggests a new policy.
