The amount of terrain in British Columbia for backcountry skiing and snowboarding is staggering.

The province is a backcountry mecca, with countless route options for single- or multi-day trips. Find peace listening to your breath and the gentle glide of ski on skin track as you travel in untracked terrain. Experienced skiers and splitboarders can stay in rustic self-serve alpine huts positioned on mountaintops and traverses throughout BC, while dozens of remote lodges offer a luxurious, guided backcountry experience.

Cosy backcountry lodges and alpine huts are perfect for multi-day ski touring, and backcountry ski guides ensure safe travel through mountain terrain. If you are an experienced backcountry skier, some provincial and national parks offer designated backcountry areas with amenities that include overnight huts, picnic areas, and open-air shelters for day trips or overnight adventures. Skiing in backcountry areas means severe weather and avalanches are real hazards. You and everyone in your group must be self-sufficient, carrying all the proper gear (transceiver, shovel, and probe), and have avalanche training.
