Jutting out of the Vowell Glacier, are the looming granite spires known as the Howser Towers. My last memory of the Howsers involved a star lit slog back to the Kain hut after grovelling up an ill formed ice climb called the Ice Hose. But the Howsers, which are part of a group of spires that comprise the Bugaboos, are not just a destination for climbers. Canadian heli skiing was born at the foot of those impressive monoliths. Skiers, climbers, hikers and all manner of tenacious adventurers have made the pilgrimage to the Bugaboos to marvel at the uniquely stunning topography and experience a kind of peaceful solitude that seems to emanate from the spires. If the Bugaboos have been calling your name, don’t wait, they are all that you imagine them to be and more.
