What's the Wilderness Season Pass?


Treat yourself to a winter spent outside. With HI's Wilderness Season Pass, you can enjoy the Canadian winter to its fullest with 7 months of unlimited stays at select Wilderness Hostels in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. If you want to spend your whole winter skiing the backcountry, wild skating, ice climbing, or exploring the panoramas on snowshoes, this pass is designed right for you.


With a Wilderness Season Pass, you can stay at any participating HI Wilderness Hostel as much as you want from November to May. You'll also get 20% off stays at select non-wilderness HI hostels during the validity of your pass.

After you purchase your pass on this page (the 2023-2024 Pass will be available in the fall of 2023), you'll receive it by email. You'll need your pass info each time that you make a booking, and at every check-in along with your photo ID.
