This 2-week trip is a powder lover's dream. Expect to have to put in some leg work – after all the best lines are rarely free. In the area, you can ride everything from cruisy powder bowls to steep couloirs and tree runs to cliff drops, ultimately if you like it steep and deep (or just deep!) this place will have you frothing at the mouth with excitement.

As with any Snowbusters adventure, we won’t just guide you to the best lines, we will also teach you the skills you need to stay safe and ride with more style. We’ll cover avalanche safety, practice rescue situations, and address deficiencies in your technique. The final itinerary depends on the conditions and weather. However, we’ll fit in some ski touring or splitboarding, cat-skiing, and lift accessible off-piste both in and out-bounds. 

The following areas will be our backcountry playgrounds for two weeks:



Just over a decade old, Revelstoke in British Columbia has earned a reputation as one of the best off-piste and ski-touring destinations on the planet. With over 1,670m of vertical, over 12 million square meters of terrain, and around 12m of snow each winter it’s a freeride paradise.

Using Revelstoke’s efficient lifts you can reach vast amounts of in-bounds avalanche-controlled terrain. If you want more, attach your skins and tour or splitboard outside the ski area's boundaries to enjoy the stunning backcountry on offer.


Rogers Pass

Less than an hour from Revelstoke is Roger’s Pass in the Selkirk mountains. Using the Trans Canada highway you can get easy access and cheap elevation, making it the destination that most Revelstoke locals go to for their backcountry fix. With big snow, steep slopes, and plenty of lines it is a freeriders dream.


Kootenay Pass

Around 4 hours south of Revelstoke on Highway 3A, you’ll find some of the most varied and fun backcountries on the planet. Kootenay Pass takes you to around 1785m and from there you can tour or splitboard around 25 well-documented routes that offer everything a powder junkie desires.
