What to pack for your ski tour:

  • Photo ID for each adult (18+) for waiver verification.
  • Warm socks, hand and toe warmers if you tend to get cold toes
  • Warm, full fingered gloves or mitts
  • Snow pants & Winter Jackets are essential in any temperatures below zero.  Gear can be rented from stores in Banff such as Snowtips-Bactrax.

  • A backpack with hot water and room to store layers
  • A couple of neck warmers such as a buff or a face covering.
