Backcountry by the Day

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Only have time for a day in the backcountry on your next Kimberley ski holiday? Then make it a spectacular one with Boulder Hut Adventures and Kimberley Alpine Resort’s new heli-assisted ski touring program.

Head into the alpine quickly every Sunday and Wednesday with a heli-lift right from the resort. After that first powdery run, you earn your turns along with two ACMG-certified backcountry ski guides who know the neighbourhood’s best chutes, high-alpine bowls and tree-skiing. For $700, lunch is included. Good fitness and familiarity with skiing or splitboarding in the untracked is expected, but if you’re waffling, you’re likely more capable than you think. Didn’t bring your gear? AT setups, skins and avy equipment is all available for rent in town.
