Canadian Rockies Backcountry Basecamp

In early March, we set up a Canadian Rockies Backcountry Basecamp.

A Canadian Rockies Backcountry Basecamp is a great way to explore remote backcountry skiing.  During a period of good stability, we eased over to a quiet part of the Rockies to get explore some inviting backcountry ski terrain.

After a great day of backountry skiing and splitboarding, we set up camp in the valley bottom near a glacier fed creek.

Basecamping with a hot tent is quite enjoyable. While we cooked dinner by the wood stove, our gear dried out next to the chimney.

It’s been a deep winter in the Rockies and it continued to snow on our trip. We were able to spend some time in the alpine, but riding this 2000’+ (600m) run was exceptional skiing and splitboarding.
