For many of us, the ultimate ski touring trip includes epic days skiing soft fluff in spectacular surroundings, but it also includes a hot shower, a fine meal and a comfortable bed each night. If ski touring this way in a beautiful wilderness setting appeals to you, why not join us for an epic week at legendary McGillivray Pass in the spectacular the Coast Range this winter? Helicopter access to masses of awesome ski touring terrain and comfortable wilderness digs combine to make this a ski touring week not to be missed.
If you don't own your own touring gear, Ski Tak Hut offers 25% off rentals for all Island Alpine Guides customers while on one of our trips.
You should be an advanced skier or snowboarder in natural snow conditions to sign up for a posted trip. If your skiing ability is less than this, please get in touch so that we can create a compatible group for you.
