Mt. Slesse Propeller Cairn: August 26
Slesse is not only a spectacular hike, but explores a piece of history. On December 9, 1956 Trans-Canada Air Lines Flight 810 crashed into Mt. Slesse. 62 passengers were on board and sadly, none of them survived. This hike will take you up to the memorial plaque and further on to the propeller cairn. You will be wowed with views of Mt. Slesse, Illusion Peaks, and Mt. Rexford.
Mt. Slesse is a world famous alpine rock climb to the summit so be sure to bring your binoculars and try to spot mountaineers from around the world en-route to the top of the Slesse spire.
Cost: $99 + GST
