Top Ski Touring Trips in Canada
From the beautiful scenery around Banff National Park to the excellent, high-quality runs around Revelstoke, there is plenty of amazing ski touring for outdoor adventurers of every level and preference.
The Canadian Cordillera stretches across western Canada and encompasses the Columbia Mountains, the Canadian Rockies and the Cariboo Mountains. The remote western part of Canada, a world away from the far more populated eastern provinces, offer ski tourers of every level and excellent opportunity to escape the crowds and get out into the great outdoors. Much of the Cordillera is remote and sparsely settled, which makes ski touring, along with heliskiing, opportune way in which to explore the diverse and beautiful wilderness that define this region. Farther north in the mountain range the aurora borealis is also visible for parts of the winter, making hut-to-hut ski touring adventures a very enticing prospect for a winter getaway.
In British Columbia, the region where most ski touring takes place, winter is quite cold with average temperatures between -10ºC to 0ºC. Temperatures increase a bit as spring approaches. The region also receives about 25 to 50 centimeters of snow per year.
This depends on how much time you have and what you would like to do. Guides offer a variety of options from single-day ski trips to two-week long ski touring expeditions.
