Description

There are many places to practice backcountry skiing in the world. But few offer as many possibilities as Banff in Alberta, Canada, and within this region, Lake Louise is one of the best destinations for skiers. Join me on this backcountry adventure, and discover one of the most beautiful places in Canada!

This is a customized trip. Starting at 1 day, but extending for 2 or more, depending on your own schedule, we’ll explore one of the best spots for backcountry skiing. I will take you to my favorite spots in the mountain, where you’ll enjoy the best powder riding. You’ll find runs that range from easy to almost vertical!

Banff and Lake Louise are some of the most sought out destinations for skiing in the country. Due to the magnificent mountains, pristine wilderness and snow, they are ideal for this activity. 

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

Because this trip involves off-piste skiing, it is important to know the risks, from avalanches to reaching unknown areas. That is why one of my main goals is ensuring you are safe. We will go over all the safety regulations to make sure you have a fun and safe trip.

So let me take you to the best spots for backcountry skiing, while you explore one of the most dazzling places in Canada. Please send me a request, and I’ll make sure your trip in Lake Louise is unforgettable!

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!
