Steep couloirs and open powder shots define the Dogtooth Range.
The Wisdom Tooth Ski Tour Kicking Horse Slackcountry is a great tour we can do as part of our Golden Backcountry Ski Camps. Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is situated in the heart of the Dogtooth Range in the northern end of the Purcell Mountains in British Columbia. There’s easy access ski and splitboard touring on three sides of the resort with boundless potential.
Kicking Horse backcountry skiing is cold smoke powder. Colder average temperatures yield consistently dry snow and good riding quality through March and into April. However the Purcell snowpack is fickle, make sure you check out the Purcell’s Avalanche Forecast
Whether you’re looking for open powder cruisers or steep chutes, the Golden, BC can deliver the goods.
A day in the Dogtooth Range is a great way to ramp up the angle and maximize your vertical in big terrain. Some of our favourite days of the year are spent sport skiing and splitboarding steep couloirs in the Dogtooth Range
