2017 Winter Outreach

Winter Outreach February 17-19, 2017 Mount Edith Cavell

**Event Full. Registration Closed**

Join us this weekend for a lively adventure in Jasper National Park. Experience the majestic Mount Edith Cavell area by cross country skis with Rockaboo Mountain Adventures. You will feel like you are skiing through a postcard or calendar photo. Hands-on forestry exploration with our own JFW forestry expert, Ross Maxwell.

Welcome to the Athabasca Falls Wilderness Hostel (30 km south of Jasper on Hwy 93). Stay overnight Friday at the Athabasca Falls Hostel, and on Saturday, we will ski approximately 11 km to the HI Mt. Edith Cavell Hostel (uphill all the way!!) for 2 nights stay at this wilderness hostel nestled in the narrow valley below Mt. Edith Cavell. Cost is only $195 per person for this fantastic wilderness zen experience!

By day, we will explore this majestic area with spectacular views of Mt. Edith Cavell, Cavell & Angel Glaciers and the Tonquin Valley. By night, we will enjoy a rustic “off the grid” hostelling experience with fresh well water, private outhouses and solar-powered lights. No internet, no cell service, just the forest cabin that you have always dreamed of ... getting to know each other and playing games.
