Traverse of Waputik/Wapta icefields from Sherbrooke to Bow lakes. Being a popular winter ski route, this astonishing trek through the icefields is rarely completed in summer (once per 1-2 years, according to the hut log books) due to its remoteness, potential winter-like conditions and clear self-dependence. Alpine Club of Canada huts along the route is a pure gift.
