Guided Backcountry Days
Incredible backcountry riding, close to home
We’ll show you the goods
Join us on a guided backcountry splitboarding/skiing tour in the Canadian Rockies. These days are set up as objective based outings with a large element of education built into the day. An ideal way to get out and see/experience more committing terrain under the guidance and leadership of our fully certified ACMG ski/board guides.
The day programs we have setup for this year are centered around Lake Louise with objectives being dependent on conditions. We offer them in partnership with SplitboardHQ. Because of their price point and local venues they have proven to be extremely popular trips with the Calgary ski and split crowd!
The final locations will be subject to current snow and avalanche conditions, all of this will be outlined and verbalized in the pre trip briefing. Guided riding and skiing is a great way to get into the mountains, learn from professionals and get in some great climbing and riding.
We will meet at 8 am, location TBA. We’ll do a quick equipment check and go over the plan for the day. From there we’ll convoy up to the trailhead. Ski tours will take place in Kananaskis Country, Banff and Kootenay National Parks, or the Canmore area.
