In the winter season we specialize in high end ski touring trips to BC’s finest Backcountry lodges as well as exotic international destinations like Svalbard, Greenland, Antarctica and Europe. In 2021 we added a new array of trips in our own magnificent backyard to appeal to the growing demand for local trips close to home. Trips we haven’t done for years, such as our Wapta, Bow Yoho, Northern Selkirks and Bugaboos Traverses, are world class and have a strong appeal to Canadians especially this past winter when we couldn’t travel internationally. When our borders reopen — and we hope they do soon — we look forward to sharing with our visitors, once again, what we believe to be the Best Skiing on Earth.
This is a complete listing of our upcoming trips.
Heli-accessed backcountry ski lodges
Escape the crowds and stay in a luxury backcountry ski lodge. Access is by helicopter, and all trips are fully guided and catered.
For backcountry skiers who want to improve their skills for getting out on self-guided adventures, we offer these Avalanche Canada certified courses.
Wild Ski Trips
We have offered ski camps and ski traverses for many years. This season there is an increasing demand for more local trips geared towards Canadian clients, not to mention trips that allow for better social distancing than the huts allow.
Every ski guide I know learned their craft starting with these kinds of trips in the company of others on the same path. Ski traverses and ski camps are where our hearts lie. Even though they are hard work and involve at least a bit of suffering, being in these remote, wild places has an irresistible lure.
Ski and Sail
Skiing and sailing seems an unlikely combination. In the arctic regions of our planet, however, are outstanding rugged mountains rising out of the ocean that are really hard to get to except by boat.
Think of these trips like a floating backcountry ski lodge. In evenings we board the ship and eat dinner while we sail to another fjord. In the morning, new vistas new ski objectives await.
