British Columbia – Backcountry Skiing
When to go: December – April
Where to stay: Bison Lodge, Revelstoke
Break away from the borders of controlled pistes to carve your way down untouched slopes. High octane, adrenaline fuelled adventure awaits you in a cat or heli-skiing experience, as you are the first to venture down vast swathes of pristine powder in complete isolation.
Ride in a snowcat above the tree line before descending across wide open alpine areas. Here, the varied terrain means that each line picked offers a fresh challenge and will see you carving long, swooping arcs before bouncing between lower trees.
Soaring over jagged peaks and rugged mountain sides in a private helicopter is also a spectacular means by which to experience the most remote skiing locations that British Columbia has to offer. Pick your spot and prepare to drop a new line that stretches way down into the valley below.
