Guided Backcountry Ski & Splitboard
Fairy dust, blower powder, cold smoke. These are just a few of our favourite names for the dry, fluffy snow these high-elevation peaks are known for. A guided day out in the backcountry on touring skis or a splitboard is a guaranteed ticket to fresh tracks in the Rockies.
Backcountry guides spend years training on safety, but also in sniffing out the best snow the mountains have to offer. Their stories of past adventures will keep your mind occupied on the uptrack and before you know it, your group will be hooting and hollering downhill through bottomless powder.

When to go
Adventurers with a moderate level of fitness will most enjoy this bucket-list activity.
Stick with a guide - backcountry snow conditions change frequently and require a high level of expertise to manage properly.
It’s best to keep moving during a backcountry day out, so bring plenty of snacks to stay fueled up.
