Naeba Slackcountry

Winter 2020 was SOLD OUT

Of course it was also shortened in an untimely fashion by the Covid pandemic. Sigh.

Selkirk Lodge – SOLD OUT – Once again we will kick off the ski lodge season with a week at Selkirk Lodge. You cannot beat the Selkirks in early January for blower powder skiing, and Selkirk Lodge is hands down the best ski touring destination in the Selkirk mountain range — for both the unbelievable terrain and the spacious newly renovated lodge — and easily one of the top three in the world. Come find out why. $2775 CAD/person (Currently $2,171 USD / €2,001 / £1,714). SL20 (January 11-18).

JaPOWaganza – SOLD OUT – “The best tree skiing in the world” — bottomless powder skiing, hot-spring “Onsens”, monkeys, quaint hotels, lift-accessed ski touring, and an amazing food culture. Come see why Japan has become such a popular ski destination. Guided by Tom Wolfe and co-guided by Jun Yanigasawa, a Japanese ski guide living in Canada who knows the area as only a local could — we’ll stay away from the crowds and get a taste of authentic Japan. $3750 CAD/person (Currently $2,870 USD / €2,645 / £2,266)  (no GST). JP20 (January 25-31, 2020).

Burnie Glacier Chalet – SOLD OUT – the legendary Burnie, land of towering blue seracs and endless ski runs taking you from high alpine down 1500 m to the old growth timber valley floor. Burnie is the best, and February is the best window for powder skiing from mountain top to valley bottom. BG20-1 (Feb 7-14, 2020) BG20-2 (Feb 14-21) and BG20-3 (March 20-27)

Valhalla Mountain Lodge – SOLD OUT – See below for our 2021 dates – March 7-14, 2020 – THE legendary Kootenay ski lodge, and a peak season week. Valhalla Mountain Lodge (not to be mistaken with VMT Touring) combines the incredible tree skiing of the Koots with the stunning alpine skiing of the Valhallas. Book before it’s gone!  $2775 CAD/person (Currently $2,171 USD / €2,001 / £1,714). VM20 (March 7-14 2020)

Burnie Glacier Chalet 3 & 4 – SOLD OUT – March 2020 – the legendary Burnie, land of towering blue seracs and endless ski runs taking you from high alpine down 1500 m to the old growth timber valley floor. Burnie is the best, and spring is the best time for the epic ski mountaineering tours Burnie is most famous for. $2675 CAD/person (Currently $2,061 USD / €1,899 / £1,627). 

Battle Abbey – SOLD OUT – March 28-April 4, 2020 – Yes, we’ve secured a prime week at Battle Abbey in 2020. $3095 CAD/person (Currently $2,429 USD / €2,238 / £1,917). 

Bow Yoho Traverse – SOLD OUT – Our third year running, this is the Deluxe Bow Yoho with a price tag that isn’t as high as you’d expect when you consider what’s included. Starting the trip in a 4-star hotel with a gourmet dinner and breakfast sets the tone for this one. The next day: ski with a light pack up to Bow Hut to find you food waiting for you courtesty of our portering staff. And if that weren’t enough (we said we set the tone on night 1 right?) carry over to Guy and Stanley Mitchell huts with light packs again to find the remaining food miraculously waiting, again courtesy of our fleet footed porters. With a couple of lay-over days for bagging classic peaks and epic ski runs, this is as close to Euro luxury as you can get on the Wapta. $1795 CAD/person (Currently $1,413 USD / €1,302 / £1,116). BY20 (April 5-11). Spots available, book today!

Svalbard Ski & Sail –  SOLD OUT – Yes, we’re doing it again! For those of you who have been sitting on the fence about our incredible ski touring trip in the Arctic Archipelgo of Svalbard, don’t let another year go by without booking a spot on this trip of a lifetime. This voyage, our third season of Svalbard “Ski and Sails”, is on the s/v Noorderlicht. $7995 CAD/person (Currently $6,035 USD / €5,561 / £4,764) (no GST).  NO20-1 (May 2-9) SOLD OUT!
