Snowboarding & Splitboarding & Whitecap.


Whitecap is a world-class destination for both ski touring and snowboarding. For snowboards, splitboards offer the best way to explore and access our epic terrain. Many of our epic descents were pioneered by snowboarders and we've been involved in snowboard and splitboard culture since the beginning. Whitecap is able to assist guests with a splitboard rental if they do not have access to one.

Ski-touring & Telemarking & Whitecap.


Ski-touring, or off-piste skiing, is a big reason why Whitecap exists today. McGillivray Pass lodge's deep history goes back to the 1950's. Our dry seemingly bottomless powder and west coast-like conditions create a perfect balance of both stability and quality. There is no other place on the west coast where accessible touring terrain and great skiing is always 'just out the front door'.

Whitecap. Our Location is Everything.


Whitecap is located 75km North East of Whistler and 50Km NE of Pemberton in beautiful British Columbia. There is no backcountry ski lodge closer to both Vancouver, BC and Seattle, Washington. Our lodge – in the South Chilcotin Mountains on the east side of the Coastal Range where the air is a little colder – is renowned for its legendary dry Chilcotin ‘cold smoke’ powder and massive snowfall.
