OverviewOur passion is snow. That’s why we’ve chosen Revelstoke, BC as our home and our launching point for our ski and riding programs. Located in the Columbia Mountains between the Selkirk and Monashee Ranges, Revelstoke and the surrounding mountains are among the snowiest places in North America. In fact, Rogers Pass (the centerpiece for our backcountry skiing and splitboarding programs) consistently receives Canada’s highest annual snowfall at it’s Mt Fidelity weather station. As many seasoned riders know, it’s not simply snow quantity that makes a great backcountry destination, but rather, snow qualityand an abundance of excellent terrain. Rogers Pass not only receives abundant snowfall, but it is typically the cold and light powder that is a dream for skiers and riders.
itineraryOur days skiing in Glacier National Park and Rogers Pass typically begin by traveling to or meeting at the Rogers Pass discovery center at 8am. From there we will discuss snow and weather conditions and choose an appropriate destination (less than 5 minutes drive) for our group. All tours at Rogers Pass begin by ascending (with skins/skis or splitboard) and finish back at the car. Our days involve a minimum of 2000 ft of uphill and descent, but more typically between 3000 and 6000 ft.
terrainThe Trans-Canada highway between Revelstoke and Golden B.C. splits Glacier National Park, allowing skiers and riders easy access to the crest of the Selkirk Mountains via it’s highpoint, Rogers Pass. The abundant snowfall, huge vertical relief (descents of up to 5500 ft), and easy access contribute to making Rogers Pass one of North America’s premier backcountry destinations. The pass offers everything from high alpine glaciated skiing to pillow filled tree skiing. The variety and amount of terrain is what makes ‘the pass’ such an incredible destination. Our trips and tours in Revelstoke and Rogers Pass have a strong emphasis on deep powder skiing and riding. Our Itineraries in Revelstoke are customized to your goals, ability level and your length of stay.
RatesThe majority of our programs are private engagements and quoted as such. For skiing and riding, we prefer groups of no more than 5 skiers/riders to one guide. Please visit our reservations page for more information.
