What to bring

Clothing

No cotton! Bring an extra set of warm, dry clothes in case you get wet. It is cold in the alpine this time of year. Put everything in dry bags or plastic bags to keep it dry.

Hiking boots (runners will work too, but you might want to bring a dry set of footwear to change into once you get to the hut)

Warm jacket (fleece or down)

Long underwear (top and bottom) or other warm layers

Toque, mitts

Weatherproof jacket (goretex)

Weatherproof pants

Warm socks (an extra pair in case your feet get wet)


Sleeping

Sleeping bag

Sleeping pad. If you don't have a sleeping pad, there are a few up at the hut and you could hope that they aren't already in use.


Essentials

Water bottles (You will need ~2L on the hike in)

Headlamp and batteries

Sunscreen

Sunglasses

Lighter and/or waterproof matches

TP


Food

Lunch and snacks x2

Breakfast x1

Dinner x1


Cooking ‘n Eating

There are bowls and spoons at the hut, as well as pots and pans so you don't have to bring your own.

There is also a propane stove at the hut, for which you need to bring a small propane canister. Either that, or your own stove and fuel. We can organize the sharing of stoves at the pre-trip.


Miscellaneous

Songbook

Small instruments (optional)
