40 feet of snow annually, most of it diamond dust powder, endless terrain options, and loooong descents. That’s Rogers Pass, a supreme backcountry area in British Columbia, and there’s no better way to explore it than by staying in a cozy timber lodge in the heart of it. With the mountain hut as your home for this 4-day ski touring adventure, you can head straight out the door and immediately cruise down supreme powder. Two ACMG guides will be joining you on this trip—they’ll show you all the spots, help you work on your objectives, and, most importantly, keep you safe. And as if the perfect snow isn’t enough, the Selkirks surroundings and terrain are also second to none: glades, tree skiing, chill slopes, the classic Forever Young couloir—you want it, you got it. Rogers Pass deserves the hype (as well as respect and caution), so going out with expert guides who will be do their best to minimize avalanche danger is your best bet.

Monte was a fantastic guide for our 4-day ski touring trip. He has an unbelievable amount of knowledge of the backcountry, weather and snow but struck an outstanding balance between the level of information he provided and the practicality of applying it in a backcountry scenario. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide! His dry sense of humour also kept thing fun on the skin track!

I have been on a number of backcountry ski/ski mountaineering trips with Monte & Black Sheep Adventure Sports over the past several years. These trips have included avalanche safety training (level 2), and multiple multi-day hut trips in some expert level terrain (such as the Tantalus range near Squamish, BC). On all the trips Monte and his guides have displayed excellent professionalism, tuition, and decision making in the mountains. In mixed ability groups, Monte will tailor the trip to all ability/fitness levels, ensuring everyone has a great time. Monte has also pushed me to tackle steeper terrain than I was used to skiing in the backcountry (both on the up and down).I would not hesitate to go on more trips in Monte in future.

I’ve use Monte (head guide at Black Sheep) for 2 seasons now for backcountry ski-touring. He’s very experienced, inspires confidence, and ensures you develop your skills as you go while feeling safe. He’s also highly capable of finding fine powder lines, great views, and good company to ski with. Can’t recommend him enough.

Richard Somerset (source: Google Reviews)

Monte is a very professional guide and teacher. The biggest compliment I can give anyone is to let them take my son out without me in the mountains. With Monte I would not hesitate to let him take my 15 year old son out climbing. That alone speaks to the trust I have in his skill, safety and preparation. Monte also has an immense amount of knowledge.
