Backcountry Touring

Experience the legendary backcountry terrain around Revelstoke and Rogers Pass.

Through custom guiding and instruction packages, Revelstoke Backcountry Guides' team of ACMG and IFMGA Certified Guides provides backcountry tours and courses that take small groups of up to 6 skiers into the incredible terrain surrounding the Revelstoke area.

Typical Itinerary

Each Backcountry package will be custom built based on the snow conditions and group experience level. Below is a typical itinerary for a three day backcountry program. A one day program will consist of day one of the three day itinerary.

Day 1: Backcountry ski or splitboard touring using the lift system at Revelstoke Mountain Resort to find untracked snow and unique lines beyond the boundaries of the resort. Learn how to use skins and avalanche safety equipment and helpful skills to travel efficiently through the mountains.

Day 2 & 3: Follow our initial day with hand-built tours around the Revelstoke and/or Rogers Pass areas that seek out the best conditions and experience for your group.
