  • Site Description:The Begbie summit trail is one of the more spectacular in the Revelstoke area. The summit trail takes you up to the tree line (5-7 hours with pack) after which hikers must walk across open rock to the toe of the glacier (45 minutes approx). Once on the glacier, climbers make their way to a ledge which gives access to the ridge leading to the summit. All those attempting the summit must have proper equipment and experience! Those wishing to become proficient at glacier travel, mountaineering and crevasse rescue techniques may wish to contact the Alpine Club of Canada for information. http://www.alpineclubofcanada.ca/

    Tension cracks are a fact of life on any glacier. They can be extremely dangerous. Often they remain covered by rotten snow and present significant hazards to anyone travelling on the glacier.

    BE CAREFUL and take your time!

  • Driving Directions:The Trail head is approximately 10km South of the Trans Canada on Highway 23
