Rogers Pass is the holy grail of road accessible Ski Touring.  We have been Ski Touring in Rogers Pass for decades.  With our wealth of experience Ski Touring in Rogers Pass, we can put together the best possible day for you or your group.  Always in tune to the current avalanche conditions and weather forecast, our trips are only run with fully certified ACMG Guides.  We offer privately run, single to multiple day trips to Rogers Pass daily leaving from Revelstoke.    



Revelstoke receives on average 10 metres (33 feet) of snow every year.  Your chances of a powder day are as good if not better than any other ski destination in the world.  Save the drive to Rogers Pass for another day when it's dumping snow and ski tour in Revelstoke.  From Ski Lift accessible backcountry skiing off the resort, Helicopter assisted Ski Touring into the surrounding areas, Ski Touring and summiting the picturesque Mt.Begbie, and Mount Macphearson, to exploring deeper into the Monashee Mountain range, Revelstoke offers it all.


Leave the crowds behind and forget about skiing tracks.  Backcountry Lodges offer the true escape that all skiers crave. Get in a helicopter to a remote Backcountry Lodge, with great food, amazing scenery and the best skiing that you and your friends have ever experienced.  Hut trips are awesome!

"Over the last four years, my friends and I have organized several backcountry ski trips through John Everts.  When touring with John, I have been impressed with his meticulous attention to safety, ability to find the best skiing conditions and find terrain that matches the group’s experience level.  John is remarkably knowledgeable, genuine, friendly, and down-to-earth.  I would recommend Selkirk Powder Descents to anyone without hesitation!"
