Is it for you?
Guests on this trip should be intermediate backcountry skiers in all conditions on either alpine touring, telemark or split board equipment with their pack on. We will be heading to backcountry locations with a variety of terrain options and depending on conditions may include glade or treed skiing and descents that require skiing blue/black type runs.
Participants don't need to be experts, however you must be able to safely descend these slopes. Previous ski touring experience on a course such as the Intro to Backcountry Skiing or the Wapta Traverse is required. Since we traverse uphill to gain our elevation, fitness is critical. This should not be your first backcountry skiing trip.
PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO CONTACT US IF YOU NEED TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE!
The mountains surrounding Canmore and Banff are home to some of the most exciting ski touring areas in Canada.
With many excellent day touring locations to choose from, we have access to an incredible array of backcountry ski terrain options including glade/tree skiing, glacier slopes, steeper peak descents, and powder bowls. Many people are uncomfortable going into the mountains on their own or don't exactly know where to go. By joining us for our ski touring classics trips you get some great beta on where our guides ski!
If you are an experienced skier who would like to get into the backcountry and out of the lift lines, this is the perfect program to enjoy much of the untouched powder skiing potential for which the Canadian Rockies are famous!
