Description

Tantalus Range Skiing is an incredible destination for backcountry skiing, alive with rumbling glaciers and stunning alpine mountains all within an hour drive from Vancouver.

The well-kept secret of the Tantalus Range Skiing is found in Tantalus Provincial Park just north of Squamish town site. Ski Mountaineering trips in the Tantalus will be based out of the Jim Haberl Hut or Tantalus Hut. These Huts are positioned amongst breathtaking panoramic landscapes allowing skiing right out the front door.

Skiing in the Tantalus Mountains can be anything from low angle glaciers to 50 degree fluted faces. Depending on your ability and conditions I will take you to the places you have always wanted to ski in one of the most stunning venues in the world.
