The cost is $1600 USD, which includes all lodging from April 30 through May 10 (inclusive), access fees to hot springs, most lunches, some breakfasts, two group dinners, and guidebook materials. It DOES NOT include transportation, either to or from Revelstoke or during the trip, but carpooling will be strongly encouraged and facilitated. Our lodgings will range from motel rooms to cabins to chalets to condos. We may put up to 5 in a lodging, but typically with multiple rooms if there are more than 3.
