Description

Over 4 days we will explore 4 different locations in the Lake Louise and Rogers Pass areas.

On Day 1, we will meet in Lake Louise and do a tour of the nearby mountains. Then we will head to Golden BC for days 2 and 3 to ski in the epic Rogers Pass area. On the 4th day, we will make our way back east and spend a day on the Continental Divide skiing on some of the greatest terrains on earth.

If you are a Powder Warrior looking for some epic descents, then this long weekend is for you, a great trip for intermediate-strong backcountry skiers. The group will adjust location accordingly depending on conditions.

I can also take you splitboarding on the Bow-Yoho traverse: check it out!
