Back country skiing is one the fastest growing outdoor activities and the only growing sector of the ski industry. The reason is because of the snow quality and people in pursuit of authentic wilderness experiences. If you are looking for an extraordinary experience, backcountry skiing with a certified mountain guide will optimize your safety, your precious time on your holiday and of the course, the fun factor.
Backcountry skiing in the provinces of B.C. & Western Alberta are some of the finest areas to ski in the world. The mountains of western Canada are at a latitude which is just far enough north for the winter snowfall averages to be reliable and consistent but just south enough to allow an abundance of excellent tree skiing when the weather is stormy.
The Canadian Rockies and the ranges of the Columbia mountains to the west get huge dumps of deep, dry powder snow. Canadian Rockies Mountain Guides are delighted to provide you with any type of back country skiing adventure that you can conceive of.
Other popular day trips seeing increasing popularity are 'slack-country' tours which are easy access ski tours off of the resorts such as Lake Louise Ski Area in Banff National Park and to the west, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in Golden, B.C. or in the heart of the snowbelt at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. We would be thrilled to custom cater a back country adventure for you if you are unsure of the style of trip that suits you, we can offer helpful advice wherever you are staying.
