Skyline Hikers of the Canadian Rockies

Booking and Payments

Here is the process for booking and paying for your hike …

Here are the details of this year’s trips:

  • We are hiking at Kootenay Plains which is between Saskatchewan Crossing and Nordegg, Alberta
  • Trip dates and remaining availability are shown on the right
  • Trip fees are $1,875 per person for a 5-night trip (GST is included)
  • Membership fees are $20 per person, $40 per family (only the first person registering pays this, each additional family member is $0) and waived for lifetime members (GST is included)

Booking and Registration Process

Before you book, please make sure there is availability for the dates that you want (see the table on the right hand side of this page).  If there is no availability, you will be placed on a waitlist.

To book your trip, you must complete and submit a Registration Form

Then, send your trip and membership fees in full.  If you wish to pay by instalments, the minimum deposit is $300 with the balance due by May 1.

No booking is complete until the registration form and trip fees are received by the Registrar.

Once booking is confirmed, a confirmation letter, with detailed trip information, will be sent to you.

No registration is complete until waiver and/or consent forms are signed.  The following documents are available for review:

Payments are subject to cancellation fees (see the Terms and Conditions for details). Any monies paid cannot be carried forward to future years.

You may want to consider the purchase of appropriate insurance to cover against your cancellation of participation. Some vendors of trip cancellation insurance include auto clubs (e.g., CAA and affiliates), insurance companies and financial institutions (e.g. Co-operators, RBC Insurance), and travel agencies. There are also online sources for trip interruption insurance – such as Kanetix.ca, TravelInsuranceQuotes.ca, Expedia.ca, Travel-Insurance-Worldwide.ca, or InsuranceHotline.com.

Availability

The camp at Kootenay Plains (in the group campground at David Thompson Resort) is limited to 24 people, however, this may be increased depending on registrations. Tents are shared. Small groups may be able to be in the same tent. If possible, requests for sharing will be accommodated by the Trip Coordinator, but cannot be guaranteed.

Trip Dates Remaining
