HI WILDERNESS HOSTELS SEASON’S PASS

Canada doesn’t close in the winter. 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.

There are nine wilderness hostels in the Rockies that are open through the winter, and with a wilderness season’s pass, you can stay at any of them as much as you want from November 1 to May 31, and get unlimited stays at HI Nordegg, Shunda Creek Hostel between Sundays and Thursdays.

HOW IT WORKS:
When you purchase your pass using the options below, you'll be emailed your pass information. (You will no longer receive a pass or confirmation in the mail.) 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).
