Join Jeff, an IFMGA certified guide, on this backcountry skiing trip in Lake Louise. Explore one of the best places for off piste skiing in the world!



1 Day

Feb, Mar, Apr, May




  • Enjoy a unique backcountry skiing adventure in Canada.
  • Tailor the program to suit your needs.
  • Spend one or more days skiing down the best slopes in Banff.


Whether it’s for a 1-day private adventure, a week-long hut Backcountry Ski adventure, or a remote ski mountaineering objective our guides are here to organize and guide you through the experience of a lifetime. All of the guides on our team are ACMG/IFMGA professionals who are certified to work in any terrain or discipline.

Keep in mind that our adventures are splitboard friendly, Jeff Bullock, owner, and lead guide, has been splitboarding since 1995. Perhaps that makes him sound old but he still loves it!

For more complex objectives, a premium may be applied, this will be discussed during the booking process. To reach the best spots, and out of convenience, we’ll use some lifts. Also, depending on your physical condition and what activities you wish to do, we can also tour back.

Some of the places we might visit, depending on the number of days you wish to ski are:

  • Purple Bowl

  • Pumpkin Bowl

  • Wolverine Ridge

  • National Geo-graphics

  • Corral Paths

  • West Bowl

So let one of the guides on our team take you to the best spots for backcountry skiing, while you explore some of the most dazzling places in Canada. Send your request and we’ll plan an unforgettable adventure together!

Or, if you are looking for a summer adventure, you can also try some rock climbing. Check out this course in Alberta that I also guide!
