WHAT TO EXPECT
Cosy backcountry lodges and alpine huts allow for multi-day ski touring, and backcountry ski guides ensure safe travel through mountain terrain. If you are an experienced backcountry skier, some provincial and national parks offer designated backcountry areas with amenities that include overnight huts, picnic areas, and open-air shelters for day trips or overnight adventures.
Avalanche safety and route-finding skills are a must when heading into the backcountry. Learn backcountry skiing skills and safety through lodges, clubs, and ski resorts or hire a certified backcountry ski guide.
