Event description

Description

The Mark Berger Traverse is an advanced alpine traverse, covering 27 Kilometers and summiting 7 peaks. We will be starting the hike at Twin Lakes and ending at Monashee Lake, covering the most unbelievably beautiful alpine country. We will be summiting 7 peaks, passing by multiple glacier fed lakes and experiencing the Monashee Mountain Range in the best way possible. Join us in August 2018 for an amazing adventure!

This expedition will be lead by Victoria Regan and her boyfriend Rory. This expedition is open to men and women, but no dogs or children please due to the extent of this hike.

We will be heading out to this hike on Saturday August 18th with the Women of the Wilderness Group who are doing a day hike to twin lakes. We will continue past twin lakes and set up camp on the first night past Boulder Mountain. The next day Sunday we will reach the base of Mt.Severide and stay the night there, ready to sumit Mt.Severide the next morning. Monday morning we will sumit Mt.Severide and reach monashee lake where we will spend the night. Tuesday morning we will acend down from Monashee Lake the the parking lot and end the trip with lunch in Lumby.
