The Slocan Backcountry Experience
The Slocan Backcountry Experience is a small group backcountry skiing / split-boarding experience in the Slocan Valley. We provide comfortable accommodations, the option of a private cook, farm to table meals, a wood fired sauna, remote backcountry access and custom guiding, for groups of two to six people. If you’re staying in the area, we can also provide day trips as well.
In light of Covid-19, we encourage responsible travel, meaning you should come in a pod and isolate while you are here, (That means no going out to restaurants, fill up you car and head home.). If you want to self cater, give us a grocery list prior to your trip and we’ll have your food waiting for you at your accommodations.
We’re happy to create the experience you seek. Come discover a truly a unique trip for you and your friends.
