Welcome to the Kootenay Pass in British Columbia, Canada. If you’re looking for some fun backcountry skiing in great conditions then look no further! 

Situated about 1 hour south of Nelson, this wonderful mountain pass is elevated up at 1780m above sea level. Separating the settlements of Salmo and Creston, the pass is also referred to as ‘the Salmo-Creston’.

The Kootenay Pass is located in the southern region of the Selkirk mountains, with the Selkirks themselves forming part of the greater Columbia Mountain range.

This area is truly stunning, with dense alpine forests, mountain lakes and a horizon dotted with peaks, you will be blown away by the views!

There is a wonderful diversity of backcountry ski touring options here, with 5 separate valleys to choose from.

Fantastic tree skiing awaits you, as do superb sub-alpine ridges that supply some amazing open terrain!

It doesn’t matter whether you are a beginner or an advanced skier, I will create a day to suit your ability and preferences.

I like to conduct my trips in small groups of up to 6 people, meaning that I’ll always be able to keep an eye on your safety and communicate about the surroundings.

So how does it sound to explore this wild and wonderful location in the Canadian Selkirk mountains? If you want deep powder snow, virgin slopes and a fun vibe then sign up now and I’ll be waiting!

Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.



Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.



All perfect



Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!



Can not review - guide cancelled but the trip was not to Perce Rock if we had gone - sadly.. tour was was what was advertised and destination was not where planned Ultimately the full day paddle was canceled by the guide company Effort was there and communication was good! Just booked what I wanted and was not what the guide could offer …
