We have amassed over 320 routes for you which include epic backcountry ski days and shorter sidecountry routes that are easily accessed from a ski resort. Each route contains a detailed route description, access and map details, time required, elevation gain, photos, ATES rating and overview map if available. For the routes found in maps and guides we publish you get an abbreviated version, for all the details consider purchasing those maps and guides in our store here.
The selection of routes spans across Canada so have a look below and select the area that is of interest to you.
We at Backcountry Skiing Canada work with various professional guides in getting intel but we also depend on input from you. If you have been on a great backcountry ski tour and you want to share your story and images, you are invited to submit your info here in our forums.
For a more complete description of these tours, and more detailed suggestions and directions, you can buy the guidebook here. The guidebook is in a super-handy format that you can easily toss into your pack and is an excellent resource in the field.
We are always eager to gather more route descriptions that aren’t featured here. It’ll mean better, possibly safer, and definitely more fun tours for readers like you.

It’s been free from day one but that doesn’t mean it’s not a valuable resource.
