Ski Mountaineering in Canada

Canada, like the USA, is a huge and very mountainous country that gets some serious winter weather and has no shortage of ski-mountaineering opportunities.


Coast Range

The Coast range has some easily accessible mountains, such as Garibaldi and Matier that are just a few hours drive from Vancouver, but also some remote and serious ski mountaineering country in the area around Mt. Waddington further north.
