Tranquility and unlimited powder awaits those willing to make the effort to climb into the alpine.
However, it's imperative that skiers have appropriate skills, equipment and avalanche training before embarking on a backcountry experience. For the inexperienced, the best option is to travel with a qualified guide.
Glacier National Park covers an area of 1,391sq km/537sq mi and lives up to its name with an abundance of glaciers and ice fields. At the centre of it all, the high elevation of Rogers Pass (1,323m/4,340ft), combined with relatively easy access by car and public transportation, makes it the perfect staging point for ski touring. Parks Canada operates two backcountry huts in the park.
