British Columbia hosts some of the greatest and most rugged backcountry terrain in the world. Famed for its legendary snowfall, bluebird weather, and dry pow that stays fresh for weeks, there’s a reason it tops every backcountry skier’s bucket list.
Here’s the catch — the best slopes in BC are found far from the resorts, and only accessible through remote alpine huts. And while skiing world-class lines away from the crowds is a thrill, planning a foray into the heart of Canada’s wilderness is as challenging as it sounds.
Luckily, you have a pro by your side!
