Description

Home to legendary territory deep in snow, Rogers Pass in the Selkirk Mountains is considered a powder highway that is soaked in endless skiing possibilities.

During this 3-day ski tour we’ll witness peak wintry beauty among the Glacier National Park, just one of seven national parks in British Columbia.

From Seattle we’ll make our way to the trailhead by crossing the border into Canada, before ascending to the Asulkan hut in British Columbia.

The Selkirk mountains are scattered with protected areas home to vibrant wilderness. Mule deer and white-tailed deer, black bears and bobcats, cougars and coyotes all roam the wild.

Bald and golden eagles soar across the skyline punctuated with nearby rugged peaks.

Choosing specific spots to explore can be quite challenging given the great abundance. But they include a tour of 7 Steps of Paradise, a major spot of steep terrain.

The Pterodactyl prominently ascends above the Asulkan hut, teasing skiers onto its steep slopes.

The Sapphire Col is a classic tour in the Asulkan Valley with a depth of skiable lines and breathtaking views.

One of the smoother spots is Asulkan Pass, above the hut and features low-angled slopes. It can be used as the perfect warm up with its low technical difficulty and routes that end back at the hut.

Potential participants are required to have a good level of fitness and high level of skiing experience, because this trip is designed for advanced level skiers.

About the guide

I am the founder of BC Adventure Guides, a certified Ski-Mountaineering Guide with the American Mountain Guides Association and a certified Avalanche Instructor with the American Avalanche Association dedicated to perfecting my craft. I began skiing as disco was dying at New York’s Hunter Mountain, ’The Snow Making Capital of the World’ and a summer ski trip to Mt Hood inspired me years later to move from New York City to Washington State for college and he never looked back.

I let my curiosity for steep, wild snow combine with my passion for travel, and big mountains into guiding, leading trips to Antarctica, Europe, Asia, North & South America.

In an effort to help preserve wild places, I completed my MBA in sustainable business from BGI and started my own company, Back Country Adventure Guides. I now share my passion for snow with my daughter between completing my ‘honey do list’ and enjoying the greatest touring on Earth at Snoqualmie Pass.
