Trip Info

This adventurous 3- day backcountry ski program starts in Nelson BC, where we will be taking a helicopter directly to our well-located basecamp. With its cluster of tents, group and cooking shelters, this camp will become our wilderness hub for the duration. From this hub, we will be touring in various directions every day in search of powder slopes to fully explore the vastness of this area.

Your adventure awaits!
