It was a great ski season!

We were blessed with more than 5 meters of snow at Boulder Hut from 6 January through mid-April, which provided our guests exceptional skiing. As we wrap up our season, we are a bit chagrined by the fact that there is always quality skiing to be had at this time of year at this elevation, but most folks are ready to put away their skis and move on to summer pursuits. You are missing out!

2017 season highlights included partnering with with PeakStratagem, an approved avalanche skills training course provider for Avalanche Canada, to host a half-week Avalanche Skills Training 2 (AST2) session, and offering our first one-day heli-assisted ski touring adventures. Look for those again next season.

We have heli-assisted hiking on tap this summer. If you are interested in the details of that, email us.

If you'd like to join us next year we advise you to reserve your spot now. We are booking up rapidly for 2018. We hope to see you then.

Thanks for a great ski season!
