Few backcountry skiing areas offer the remoteness of those in Northern British Columbia. It's possible to carve fresh tracks for days without seeing another person.

Along with its vast wilderness, Northern BC offers epic snowfalls and diverse terrain. Traverse alpine ridges, conquer glaciers rising to 2,000m/6,500ft, descend through open bowls, or make tight turns through perfectly spaced glades.

Want to learn about backcountry skiing and avalanche safety from a pro? Courses are available in Smithers, Terrace and Prince George.

Tap into local knowledge and have a backcountry ski guide lead the way to the best runs and traverses. Guided trips range from one to ten days and leave from Prince George, Smithers and Terrace. Want to get really remote? Some tours are only accessible by helicopter.
