    For 4 exciting days, I would like to guide you on an incredible ski tour through the Bonnington mountain range. Located in the Canadian province of British Columbia, this vast area is a true wonder. And it is my hope that you will get to see as much of it as possible over the course of this trip.

    We will be ski touring through the area’s back country. As a result, you will be away from the crowds. Thus giving you a chance to admire and appreciate the beauty of the natural landscape.

    The trip will begin with a drive to the Bombi summit. After that, we will ski tour to the Grassy mountain hut, where we will be spending the night. Throughout the day, you will have ample opportunity to enjoy many descents around the Grassy mountain area. When you wake up the next day, we will make our way along the west end of the Bonnington mountains to the Steed hut. This comfortable hut, where we will be spending the night, is located near the Siwash mountain, home to more great descents. On day 3, it’s off to the Copper mountain hut, where you will get to enjoy even more great descents. Finally, on the last day of the tour, we will be venturing to the Empire Peak area. There you will get to descend all the way down to Barrett lake. Afterwards, we will catch a shuttle to Nelson.

    On this amazing 4 day ski tour, you will get to immerse yourself in the Bonnington range’s snow capped trees and peaks. If that sounds like something you want to do, send me a request, and enjoy everything this winter paradise has to offer.

    I can also lead you on a 3 day option of this trip that includes a scenic helicopter ride!

    About the Guide

     
     

    I am an IFMGA and ACMG-certified mountain guide based in Nelson, British Columbia. I'm the lead guide at Summit Mountain Guides, a guiding agency I co-founded back in 2007 and which offers year-round guiding services and courses in Canada and Europe.

    The mountains of western Canada have been my playground since 1992. I'll be happy to take you mountaineering, backcountry skiing, rock climbing, hiking or ice climbing in this area I know so well. From day trips to multi-day adventures, I can guarantee an unforgettable and safe experience.

    The SMG team of guides will help you with your trip's logistics, safety and contingency plans so that you get the most out of your backcountry experience and can just focus on having an amazing time on the mountain!
