Highlights

  • Enjoy an exciting ski touring weekend adventure in Lake Louise.
  • Learn ski touring skills and practice them in an amazing wilderness setting.
  • Discover the wonders of the Canadian Rockies with a certified local guide.

Description

These weekends are designed to introduce people to the backcountry in the areas surrounding Lake Louise, Kananaskis Country, Highway 93 South, and Highway 93 North.

If you are new to ski and splitboard touring or have some experience and are looking to get introduced to some new areas, the weekend warrior program will suit you. Our guides will give instruction on powder skiing, ski touring, and splitboard efficiency, and achieving your goals while keeping things safe and fun.

The program is perfect to progress you to the Powder Warrior program, and then one of our Spring Ski Expeditions! An AST 1 course is highly recommended, and the Weekend Warrior program is a great addition to an AST 1 to round out the learning.

The guides work on both skis and splitboards. Join us on one of the unique ski touring or splitboarding weekend warrior programs that run until the end of May.
