Backcountry Skiing

Many of the summer hiking destinations become great ski touring once the snow flies. Large alpine areas provide a variety of experiences, from easy tours to rugged ski mountaineering. Spring is the best time for tours, with longer days and settled corn snow. The knowledge and equipment to travel safely in avalanche terrain is essential.

  1. Hello, I’m a splitboarder from Grande Prairie. Looking to meet more people interested in backcountry touring in the area. If you know anyone to put me in touch with it would be great to get out and see more of the local terrain.

    Thanks,

  2. Hi folks,
    I am stationed here in tumbler through end of the year for work. I ski tour pretty religiously and am looking for some other folks to get out with. I see no shortage of terrain in the region and I’m stoked to go exploring! There must be some pockets west side of the Rockies that get enough snow before end of December, ya?

  3. hey Drew and Kevin, my buddies and I are splitboarders in Grande Prairie too. We are interested in getting into the hills around tumbler. We should get in touch.
