passion. adventure. vert.
Arctos Guides has been offering guided backcountry skiing since 2017 in Slocan, British Columbia. It’s name is derived from the ancient Greek word Arktos, which referred to bears. Ursus Arctos Horibilis, the grizzly bear also inhabits the northern forests and mountains in which we operate. It seemed reasonable to honour our furry neighbours by naming the company after them. Arctos Guides’ mission is to provide safe, fulfilling mountain adventures to our guests year round in BC and beyond.
