Whitewater Ski Resort backcountry (Dave Heath photo)

British Columbia has the most important elements for fantastic backcountry skiing: big snowfalls and huge mountains.

Expect diverse terrain filled with untouched powder, glades, glaciers and incredible scenery. Cozy backcountry lodges and alpine huts allow for multi-day ski touring, and backcountry ski guides can safely assess the snowpack.

What is Backcountry Skiing?

Backcountry skiing in British Columbia typically means “earning your turns” by trekking up slopes with climbing skins or by bootpacking. The reward? Skiing down through untracked snow, usually in remote areas.

Ski amongst glaciers and granite peaks in Rogers Pass, or discover untracked runs over vast ski terrain near Barkerville. Skin through deep snow in Strathcona Provincial Park or follow moose, caribou and deer tracks in Wells Grey Provincial Park. Explore the backcountry of Shames Mountain or cross 14 glaciers on the Spearhead Traverse.

Avalanche safety and route-finding skills are a must when heading into the backcountry. Learn backcountry skiing skills and safety through lodges, clubs or ski resorts such as Revelstoke, Whitewater and Red Mountain, or hire a backcountry ski guide.
