Backcountry Skiing

Backcountry skiing areas and untracked powder stashes are clustered in the northern part of the Thompson Okanagan region, near Clearwater and Valemount.

Popular accessible areas include Mount Robson Provincial Park and Wells Gray Provincial Park. The Monashee Mountains' backcountry is a little harder to reach, but that just makes the turns through the 15m/49ft of light snow that much sweeter. Wildlife viewing opportunities are excellent here; watch for moose, caribou and mountain goats.

Beginners can get an introduction to backcountry skiing though courses provided by local outfitters. Backcountry guides and tours are available in a number of areas, including Wells Gray Provincial Parks and Mount Robson Provincial Park.
