Feature Backcountry Trips
Feature backcountry trips are a curated selection of things we’d like to do and places we’d like to go. These trips are well planned ski and splitboard adventures in exotic destinations. Every year, we pick out a selection of mountain venues that will combine excellent backcountry skiing and splitboarding with an unparalleled sense of adventure. These trips range from remote helicopter accessed backcountry basecamps deep in the mountains to town based ski and splitboard trips all over the world. We skied all over the world from Tuckerman’s Ravine, to Baffin Island, Kyrgyzstan, Chile, Argentina, Rogers Pass, the Canadian Rockies and Norway.
We’re excited to offer exclusive guided backcountry lodge weeks and skiing at the Burnie Glacier Chalet. One of the premier backcountry lodges in BC. Big glaciated terrain coupled with excellent storm skiing makes a recipe for a great backcountry lodge trip. There is extensive alpine terrain. We love to explore the nooks and crannies of a backcountry lodge tenure, so expect big days in this alpine paradise.
Golden, BC is optimally situated for backcountry skiing and splitboarding; with three mountain ranges within an hour’s drive, it doesn’t get much better. Join us for an incredible town based backcountry ski camp. Rogers Pass, the Rockies and the Purcells have tons of backcountry ski terrain. The beauty of basing out of Golden, is we are virtually equidistant to all of the backcountry zones. This means if its dumping, we can ride near Golden. If its clear and the stability is good, we can head to the Rockies and explore some ski mountaineering objectives. Rogers Pass is always an option too!
Join our Valhalla basecamp. The Valhallas are Alps of the Kootenays, yielding panoramic views and lots of vertical relief. Towering north walls provide sheltered, steep, north aspect skiing deep into Spring; making the Valhallas a prime ski mountaineering destination.
Lyngen backcountry skiing is a special affair. The Lyngen Alps are one of the premier ski destinations in the world. Situated at 69 degrees north, 350 km north of the Arctic Circle, the Lyngen Alps, provide incredible ski conditions well into the month of May. Long days, incredible terrain and spectacular views of the fjords are just part of what makes this destination so special. Late April and early May provide better weather, 18 hours of daylight and a well settled snowpack; a prefect recipe for maximizing your ski backcountry ski experience.
