Cross-Country skiing or snowshoeing to the HI-Mount Cavell Hostel in Jasper National Park is a great overnight adventure. Make sure you have all the necessary equipment, skill, and knowledge for this challenging yet very rewarding adventure.

The trek is 11.6km one way to HI-Mount Cavell Hostel and can be done on classic or skate skis. Be ready for a workout as this breathtaking ski (in more ways than one) has an elevation gain of 1,000ft. Make sure you've done your homework on current avalanche conditions and have the proper gear packed with you (shovel, beacon, food, etc.).
