Spiral Tunnels/Kicking Horse Pass Railway Adventure

July 22nd & 23rd, 2017

A weekend of Railway Adventure for $200.00 per person
$180.00 for Friends of Yoho members

Spend a day listening to the fascinating lore of the Canadian Pacific Railway, in particular, the story of the Big Hill and its unique operating problems, spiral tunnels and the locomotives and trains which traversed it. Then on the second day you will visit the Big Hill, starting at Morant’s Curve, east of Lake Louise and working your way back to Field through a series of points of interest, each with its own fascinating history.

Rail AdventuresParticipants are responsible for their own accommodation and meals. In the Field area, facilities range from national park camping to first-class lodges. Accommodations fill quickly during the summer months, so reserve a room or suite asap. A detailed area accommodation listing is available at www.field.ca/accommodations. Admission to Canada’s National Parks is free during 2017.

If the minimum requirement of 6 registrants has not been met 2 weeks prior to the course date, the course will be cancelled. Full refund of registration fees will be made only if the course has been cancelled or if the Friends of Yoho receive notice of withdrawal 30 days prior to the course date.

Since there is a field component for the course, be sure to bring sturdy footwear for moderate walking and clothing suitable for the changeable mountain environment.
