Coast Mountains

1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr




  • Learn techniques from an expert local skier.
  • Take in the serene beauty of the Coast Mountains.
  • Ride the untouched powder of British Columbia’s backcountry.


Ski the accessible wilderness around Lake Duffey in the stunning scenery of western Canada! Enjoy a multi-day program exploring the lakes, peaks, and meadows of the Coast Mountains while ski touring through rewarding and satisfying terrain!

Head northeast past Whistler and Pemberton to the enchanting region surrounding Duffey Lake, including the Duffy Lake Provincial Park. Tucked deep into the heart of British Columbia, this area has some high profile peaks with road access, making a ski trip seamless and exhilarating. The Coast Mountains possess the light, dry powder that has made Canada, from the Rockies west to the Pacific Ocean, a premiere skiing destination.

Your ski touring program takes advantage of the immaculate landscape of Duffey Lake. It has an array of possible areas to discover, from Matier and Spetch to Cayoosh and Burnt Ridge. The skiable area is seemingly endless. There are abundant lines in the nearby Rohr area, giving us ample opportunity to cover all the most desirable places in the Coast.

There are tons of objectives, all with unique features like glaciated terrain, long runs, and steep couloirs. The choice is yours, with the option of extending your trip to a few days or more. For anyone looking to immerse themselves in the reason, this is one of the best ways to ski the amazing snowpack and experience the unique wilderness of Canada.

I am always in search of the best powder in the area and sharing it with fellow skiers. Our goal is to find the best runs in the area while having a fun, safe, and fulfilling ski touring adventure. You should have an intermediate skill level to participate in the program, with the mental fortitude of a sustained ski trip to match.

Stop waiting and start BOOKING your Duffey Lake ski touring program for a rare chance to ski the pristine powder of the Coast Mountains in one of the most accessible and delightful backcountries in Canada!

There is also a multi-day program ski touring around the backcountry of Whistler for any powder hounds who want to take on the world-class icon of British Columbia!

About the guide

I live in Squamish, BC surrounded by mountains that offer adventures for people of all abilities. Whistler is our home ski hill and the backcountry skiing around the Coast Range is a great place for novices and experts alike. With some of the best rock climbing on the planet as well as a host of peaks in remote wilderness settings, there are literally infinite possibilities. I am an IFMGA Licensed Mountain Guide working in all disciplines and look forward to sharing some mountain adventures with you soon.

I'm a Millet-USA Athlete and do a bit of writing and photography in my free time. I have many passions but my primary two are to enjoy the mountains each day and guide you to remarkable places full of stunning experiences.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
