Avoiding the tourist traps! The Bugaboos

Jagged peaks shoot up from the valleys and lakes, ancient glaciers flow down mountains, it is truly a wild place.

While Glacier and Banff National Parks may seem like the best places to go light mountaineering around the Rockies, we recommend avoiding the tourist traps and heading west to Bugaboo Provincial Park in British Columbia. Jagged peaks shoot up from the valleys and lakes, ancient glaciers flow down mountains, it is truly a wild place. Situated in the Purcell Mountains of southeast British Columbia, continues to draw climbers from around the world to its airy, glacier-sculpted granite spires. With many peaks over 3,000 metres in elevation, the Bugaboos offer awe inspiring mountain and glacier terrain.

The Conrad Kain Hut is maintained by BC Parks and the Alpine Club of Canada. This base camp for climbers operates to reduce visitor impacts on the fragile timberline area below Snowpatch Spire.
