Climbing up to the Dome Col, Rogers Pass

This ski tour is approximately 1400m of vertical and 14km round trip if you shuttle a vehicle. However, carpooling and hoofing it back to the Loop Brook parking is the sustainable choice and will tack two and a half km on to the trip.

Skiing down the Dome Glacier, Rogers Pass

This tour travels through complex, glaciated avalanche terrain and is a great ski/ Splitboard mountaineering objective.
