Gratitude For Powder

Dolores LaChapelle once said, “Joy is the response of a lover receiving what he loves. This is the joy we feel when skiing powder… This overflowing gratitude is what produces the absolutely stupid, silly grins that we always flash at one another at the bottom of a powder run.

Something for Everyone

At several of the lodges, gently rolling terrain lends itself to the mellower side of backcountry skiing– cross-country touring. Strap on a pair of cross-country skis and enjoy the same views, deep snow and quiet wilderness as the other skiers, without the climbs or descents.

Powder…It’s Here

Snow has arrived in BC and the backcountry lodges are loving it! Here are some inspiring images showcasing the skiing bounty that currently exists at the lodges. check it out and keep your powder skiing fire stoked! (photo: Garrett Grove)

Untracked Powder, No Crowds
