Fairy Meadows Ski Trip
March 13-20, 1999
The area in winter is described in Summits and Icefields
as "perhaps the backcountry ski destination in Canada."
"If you are looking for a place to spend a week, telemarking every
day on challenging slopes in the best powder, the answer is the Fairy
Meadow Hut. The terrain is some of the best at any ACC hut, the snow
is great, and the hut is the closest thing the ACC has to a ski lodge
(check out the new wood-fired sauna!).
