Description

The Whistler Ski Touring Lodge in British Columbia’s Coast Mountains is home to spectacular summits, glaciers, and rolling forest terrain. You’ll have the experience of a lifetime backcountry ski touring as you float in endless powder, tour alpine forests, and drop into pristine untracked alpine bowls.

I will navigate the terrain and select routes to suit your skill, fitness, experience and desired goals and achievements.

Spend days exploring untracked Coast Mountain powder and evenings sharing the day’s adventures like-minded people around the fireplace at the Journeyman Lodge.

In the vast area of BC wilderness, the Whistler Ski Touring Lodge sits amidst rugged peaks and spectacular scenery at 4,500 ft (1,370m).

The opportunities in this wilderness for ski touring are endless, as the slopes end less than half a kilometer from the door of the Whistler Ski Touring Lodge. The amenities inside the lodge are no less spectacular than the scenery outside.

The Whistler Ski Touring Lodge preserves the charm and warmth of traditional alpine culture and hospitality.

Featuring deluxe full-service meals, a Scandinavian sauna, hot showers and crisp linens you can recharge in old-world luxury & style.

With a consistent annual snowpack of 12 feet (365cm), the Callaghan valley is the perfect choice for a winter backcountry get away. The valley gets an annual average snowfall of 36 ft (1,097 cm), giving it the reputation as one of the wildest backcountry touring areas in the Pacific Northwest.

The humid air mass from the Pacific Ocean moves inland up the inlets, across the snowfields to the mountains. The mountains push the cooling air up to the Upper Callaghan Valley. The cold mountain temperatures turn the cooled air mass into the famous dry, light & fluffy powder British Columbia is famous for. Each snowfall creates the perfect conditions for backcountry ski touring right from the front door of the Whistler Ski Touring Lodge.
