Rogers Pass Ski Touring
Rogers Pass is a renowned destination for ski touring and ski mountaineering in British Columbia. Located between Revelstoke, BC and Golden, BC, Rogers Pass offers everything from massive, glaciated terrain to steep tree skiing to mellow powder fields, this is a backcountry skiing paradise. It's a great place to build big mountain ski mountaineering skills or to just have a great time exploring the wilds of the British Columbia backcountry.
Much of the backcountry skiing in Rogers Pass requires substantial approaches and significant vertical gain. This terrain is suited to skiers and riders with excellent fitness, a few years of ski touring experience and a basic understanding of avalanche hazard and avalanche rescue.

Food and water
- Snacks for the day - we don't take an official lunch break, so be prepared to eat quickly on the go. Our days are jam packed with movement and learning so food must be quick and easy to eat.
- Water - bring two liters capacity. Bring a maximum of 2 Liters of water, more than that will be too much weight! Please bring at least one hard sided water bottle, but typically I bring a Nalgene and a Hydrapack or Camelback/Platypus/Etc. Hydration systems typically work well in Tahoe without freezing, but have a hard sided backup in case.
- First Aid/blister Kit
- Chemical hand warmers
- Hydration System (Camelback, etc). Please bring an additional hard sided water bottle if you choose to bring a hydration system.
