Itinerary

Information

As you set out on the majestic Coast Mountains for a day full of adventure, you’ll likely experience favorable conditions for a perfect skiing and snowboarding experience. In the backcountry, there is usually ample powder to ensure great turns as you speed down the slopes. We ensure smaller groups of 3-5 people to make sure you have the best time possible. During the tour, you will get to descend a total of around 5,000 feet! However, this does depend on your overall fitness level and ability.  

This tour is great for advanced, expert, and even intermediate skiers and snowboarders. We have updated our policy to make it possible for backcountry enthusiasts to have great fun with your respective social bubble. As you will be booking with people from your personal social bubble, it helps the travel guide to customize the entire tour to ensure that you and your group make the most of the day.

At Squamish, touring opportunities are offered for all abilities and skill levels. While the rolling meadows of the classic Paul Ridge serve to be a great starting point for those who are just starting out, the terrain tends to change rapidly.  

Duffey Lake and Pemberton, serve as a classic, big-mountain skiing zone. The area is known for a range of adventure-filled options to choose from. The location is highly recommended for snowboarders and skiers. The entire tour is set for one full day of immense fun and exhilaration.
