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.
Participants 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

A detailed area accommodation listing is available at www.field.ca/accommodations. Admission to Canada’s National Parks is free during 2017.
