Itinerary:
The plan is to drive to Jasper on June 10, Saturday & go to the gondola & hike to the top of Whistler Mountain. It's a half hour hike. I normally spend 2 hours on top in awe of the view & have lunch up there. Cost is ~$35.00 for the gondola. We will need to find a cheap place to sleep/camp on Sunday night. On Sunday the 11th we find ourselves at the Maligne Lake Trail head & get our boats into the water as early as possible like 8 or 9 am. We paddle to Fisherman's Bay (about 4 or 5 hours plus breaks) & camp there for the night. On Monday we paddle past Spirit Island to Coronet Creek (two hours or so plus breaks). We will camp at Coronet Creek for two nights. On Tuesday we hike around Coronet Creek, there are some unofficial trails nearby & maybe even go for a paddle. On Wednesday we paddle back to Maligne Lake Trail head (4 to 5 hours plus breaks) load up & drive back to Edmonton. That puts us back in Edmonton in the late evening of Wednesday June 14th. If you want to talk about this trip please call me at 780 299 7394. I did this trip last summer & it just might be the best scenery I have ever seen. YOU MUST BE AN EXPERIENCED PADDELER even if this trip is the most paddling you have ever done. I need you to convince me that this is something you CAN DO reasonably well.

Required Items to Bring:
You need a canoe or a kayak. Everything needed to operate your boat including a paddle, a spare paddle, a PFD, a pealess whistle, a bailing bucket or pump, and a waterproof flashlight. You will need ALL your supplies in dry bags except for the obvious stuff like your PDF. You will need all appropriate clothing for both hiking and paddling. You will need all your food and a stove if you plan on cooking plus all the tools to eat with like plates, cutlery..... You will need a tent or to share a tent, a sleeping bag, a mattress of some sort. You will need your medications should you need some. A sun hat, sun screen, insect repellent, water bottles, water purification device or chemicals, a day pack for hiking. You will need TWO FULL SETS OF CLOTHING so if you get one set wet you can change ALL YOUR CLOTHING. a pair of shoes other than your hiking boots that you can wear when not hiking & some shoes for paddling (like sneakers or paddling booties)

How to Get There:
Carpool to Event Distance (round trip):900Km
Carpool Departure Time: 8:00 AM
Carpool Location:   Log in for location
Carpool Directions:   Log in for directions
Carpool Cost: The event coordinator(s) will help you to arrange a centralized carpool if you require it, but it's not guaranteed. Please DO NOT pay your driver en route. Passengers will pay the coordinator, and he/she will distribute the money to the carpool drivers. SO PLEASE BRING CASH!!! Approximate vehicle expense for this event is $207.00 (calculated at total Km * $0.23, effective Friday, June 23, 2017). This is based on $0.09/Km for maintenance, plus current gas price divided by 9. This cost will be multiplied by the number of carpooled cars, and divided by the number of carpool participants.

Notes:
I order to camp in the park I will need to register you as sleeping on my tent pad & I think that the cost for 3 nights will be $40.00 (at least, that is what I paid today. I intend to sleep at the HI Jasper on Saturday night.
