Coastal Ski Mountaineering

Explore the heart of the Tantalus, one of the most iconic ranges in BC. We’ll be stationed in the high alpine at the Jim Haberl Hut and ski touring to lines you look at from the Sea to Sky highway.

This is the premium coastal ski mountaineering trip, designed to get people into terrain not otherwise accessible. We will take a helicopter to the Jim Haberl Hut for four days of hut-based, steep skiing at it’s finest.

This trip has room for four guests.

This trip is designed for intermediate to advanced skiers with strong ski touring skills. Basic mountaineering skills, i.e. glacier travel and steep boot packing are recommended.
