The backcountry skiing and snowboarding in Banff National Park is boundless, serving up nearly endless terrain ideal for both multi-day missions and single day adventures. Earn your turns and drop into glacier bowls and steep lines, or sample the easily accessible slackcountry and backcountry touring from the ski resorts. For those seeking the most direct line to untouched alpine, heli skiing and snowboarding opens up a whole new world of possibilities for unrivaled powder slashes.
Ensure that you are well prepared and appropriately experienced in alpine and avalanche terrain before venturing into the backcountry: Banff National Park is serious mountain terrain.
