Highlights

  • Learn and perfect your backcountry skiing skills.
  • Enjoy the amazing pow of the Lake Louise region.
  • Discover the uncrowded backcountry on a weekday.

Description

The Lake Louise region is famous for its unique ski opportunities and skiers come from all parts of the world to enjoy the region’s pristine snow.

On this adventure, you will discover the backcountry surrounding the Lake Louise, Kananaskis Country, Highway 93 South, and Highway 93 North areas. We will learn powder and ski touring efficiency, as well as help you achieve your backcountry ski goals, always making both safety and fun a priority.

When it comes to off-piste skiing, it is important that participants are in good physical condition. It is also good to have some prior experience, as that will open up more challenging spots for you.

So, would you like to ski on some world-class slopes this winter? Then send us a request and we can enjoy a unique weekday out in the world-famous Lake Louise pow! You can also join us for full-weekend tours.

The back country is just over that ridge - just right there. You need a guide to access it safely though, and Jeff knew exactly where to go and what to do to create a fantastic - first time splitboarding experience for me. I've been to Lake Louise so many times, now I've seen a little of what is AROUND Lake Louise and my mind has been expanded. Will be back for more adventure for sure!

Great day of touring in the amazing surroundings around Lake Louise - the vue and silky powder snow were worth the effort of climbing!

I had such a great experience skiing backcountry for the first time! Jeff was an amazing guide and really helped us learn how to use backcountry equipment and avalanche gear. My only concern was that we were forced to change the date of our trip quite last minute and we were not given much information about the trip until only 1-2 days in advance. However, the trip itself was incredible! Thank you for such an amazing experience!
