Description

Join me on a spectacular ski touring adventure in Whitehorn-Mount Robson, in Canada!

Whitehorn Mountain is located in British Columbia and stands tall at 3,399-metre (11,152 ft). It is also one of British Columbia’s ultra prominent peaks! This stunning mountain is a unique location for a ski camp in a remote, high altitude location. The ski camp is positioned on the Longstaff glacier moraines. Standing high above camp are Whitehorn Mountain, Longstaff, and Mount Phillips. The ski runs are at an average 1200 m long and Mount Robson is only a few km to the South. This area is very remote and seldom visited, this is an opportunity to explore the Canadian Wilderness with the comfort of a base camp.

On this exhilarating 6-day program, we will stay in shared tents and also have a large dome tent to cook, dry gear and relax in. Every day, we will fly in and out of the camp location by helicopter. Therefore, all the skiing will be done as day trips from the base camp with light packs. 

The Base camp elevation is at approximately 2000 m  and we will appreciate incredible views in all directions. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy skiing like never before.

So, if you would like to experience a great adventure in the Canadian Rockies or have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me!
