Ski Mountaineer British Columbia’s Glacier National Park Rogers Pass

Rogers Pass near Revelstoke, British Columbia offers some of the best accessible backcountry skiing in North America, with a wide range of high alpine and glaciated terrain as well as excellent powder skiing below treeline.

Revelstoke, British Columbia and the surrounding mountains are among the snowiest places in North America, and Rogers Pass consistently receives Canada’s highest annual snowfall. Both snow quality - cold and light powder that is a dream for skiers – and an abundance of excellent terrain make the Rogers Pass area a great backcountry skiing destination.  With good weather and stability, some of the classic high alpine tours include Glacier Circle Hut, Young’s Peak, Seven Steps of Paradise, Dome Glacier, Sapphire Col, and the Lily Traverse. In storm conditions, excellent powder skiing is available below treeline. The routes are challenging and require very strong, expert-level ski mountaineering skills, including glacier travel training.
