My Favorite Backcountry Skiing Locations in Canada

Canada is my favorite destination for backcountry skiing. In the world. The quality of snow is diverse, varied and always awesome. It’s also the birthplace of pillow skiing and heli-skiing. What’s not to like? There’s tons of locations that offer challenging and technical lines. There’s also a fantastic network of hut-based skiing if you really want to go deeper into the backcountry. British Columbia offers Alaskan and Japanese quality powder, but with far easier accessibility. Lodging options are world class, so if you need a day of rest, you can have it in comfort and style.
