Wilderness Season Pass

The cold doesn't stop us here.

Get seven months of unlimited stays at HI’s Wilderness Hostels in the Rockies.

Canada’s Rocky Mountains are a totally different world come winter. Once the snow falls, everything becomes quieter, calmer… and, yeah, colder. All you need is some cozy clothes and a warm place to spend the night and this winter wonderland becomes your playground, with cross-country ski trails at your doorstep, crisp night skies bursting with stars and new friends gathered around a mid-winter bonfire.

HOW IT WORKS:

With a Wilderness Season Pass, you can stay at any participating HI Wilderness Hostel as much as you want from November 1st to May 31st. You'll also get 20% off stays at HI Banff, HI Jasper and HI Lake Louise between Sundays and Thursdays.

When you purchase your pass using the options below, you'll be emailed your pass information. After making a reservation, please have this emailed pass information available upon check-in (printed or saved as a screenshot on your fully charged phone, as not all hostels have wifi or electricity), along with the photo ID associated with your pass.
