March Madness

Come stay in Golden, BC and spend 4 days ski touring or splitboarding. This midweek program is offered to get the most out of the March powder season. With deep winter snowpack covering all the rocks, trees, and glaciers, this is one of the best times to ski from the peaks all the way to the valley bottom. Being a midweek trip has the advantage of fewer crowds going after the same lines. We will spend two days guided in the backcountry surrounding Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. This venue allows us to take advantage of the gondola up to the high alpine, where we start touring or skiing from. This makes an ideal first day as groups can cover all the mandatory safety training and get some good long powder skiing laps in. KHMR’s backcountry offers a great selection of chutes, couloirs and steep terrain to ski. 

 

Following that, we will spend two days skiing in Glacier National Park, AKA Roger’s Pass, located in the height of the Selkirk mountains. This land of big storms and massive peaks makes for some high quality, and leg burning runs. We’ll explore the vast glaciers or find steep pillows in the trees during storms. Rogers Pass is a must-do for every adventurous skier or snowboarder.
