How do I get to Mt Robson Pit?

Directions to Mt Robson Pit: The “pit” is accessed from Highway 16 eastbound, via a right-hand turnoff 1.2 km from the Mt. Robson Infocentre.  A good reference is that the turnoff is 200 Meters before the Overlander Falls parking lot when travelling east on Highway 16.  After turning in, proceed down a short gravel road to the clearing. If the entry gate is locked, please wait, as we may have been delayed. Please be at Mt Robson Pit no later than 8:15 AM to allow us time for the shuttle. Please note if you are later than 15 minutes and delay start of the flights, or we have to incur an additional flight for less than 3 people you will be charged for the cost of the flight.

If I want a pickup at Robson Pass and the weather is bad what happens?

If the weather is poor on the day of your 9:00am flight, we will continue to attempt pickup until 12:00 noon. After this we will not attempt anymore flights and you will be required to hike out yourself.  The reason for this is that we need to leave sufficient time for you to hike out as a flight cannot be guaranteed.
