The cost of a Weekend trip is arrived at by:
Adding the Hostel or Hut Cost as noted in Tour Schedule plus
$9/weekend club levy and leased safety gear
$5 for an approved avalanche beacon
$2 for an approved snow shovel.
This is typically $54 for people that require both a beacon and a shovel.
It is broken out like this since many of our members own their own safety equipment, and therefore do not have to rent the club equipment.
Longer trips and those on the icefields cost more, since the cost of the accommodation is higher plus there may be helicopter fees etc.
Car Pooling Parkland encourages car pooling and we suggest the following:
The passengers share car-pooling costs. The driver’s share consists of the use of his car and the driving.
