Safety & Avalanches

During the week or two will spend a lot of time learning about safety in the mountains. Specifically, how to avoid an avalanche through understanding conditions, reading snow profiles and simple snow stability tests. You’ll learn how to perform an avalanche rescue if things go wrong along with some useful first aid.

Although there is some theory, most of it is taught in real life situations on the mountain. Snowbusters will demonstrate how to organize a group avalanche rescue and you’ll take part in plenty of simulations. This includes multiple backfilling, digging victims and hypothermic treatment.

 

Revelstoke

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 metres 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 areas 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 destinations that most Revelstoke locals go 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 backcountry 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.

 

Join Snowbusters for a Canadian backcountry adventure in British Columbia. Your only regret will be why you didn’t visit sooner.
