Q: What should I bring and what is required for the Basecamp?

You should bring the following items for the Basecamp activities.

Snowshoe Walkers and Mountaineers

  • Snowshoe walkers should bring mountain boots for comfort, grip and stability, (to protect the ankle).
  • Mountaineers must bring their personal sturdy mountain boots with sufficient ankle support and stiff sole. Mountain boots must be designed to fit crampons. Crampons will be supplied onboard.
