Escape into the real backcountry for a real adventure.

There are endless opportunities of places to ski in the spring.  Basecamps allow for prime access to some of the best skiing imaginable.  Spring offers a great opportunity for steep skiing and spectacular scenery.  For skiers seeking a real adventure join us for our annual basecamp.  Get in a Helicopter and get dropped off in paradise.  Every year locations will change as we always want to check a new area out.  There is no better way to finish your season than with the trip of your lifetime.



For 2023 we will be doing two spring Ski Mountaineering Basecamps.  The first will be held in the Bugaboos on April 22-29th, and the second will be in the Adamant range of the Northern Selkirk Mountains on May 6-13, 2023.  

Both areas will be accessed by Helicopter from Golden, BC.  This is a week long tent based ski touring trip.  These trips are for advanced ski tourers or strong skiers looking to get more into ski mountaineering.  Seize this opportunity to explore these beautiful mountain ranges.  No tracks, no people, no wifi, real mountaineering.  

If you want to get more into ski mountaineering, come do the real thing with Selkirk Powder Descents.  To mitigate the spread of Covid-19 each person will have their own tent and we will cook and eat underneath shelters outside.  The trip cost is $ 2450/person.  This price includes Helicopter Flights in and out of the camp from Golden, catered food, and guiding services.

Up your game and get after it this spring with Selkirk Powder Descents!



The best time to get after it is in the spring.  When conditions allow we'll do our best to push the limits.


Basecamps allow for the true escape to places seldom visited.  The stunning scenery and adventure provided on these trips are truly unique and unforgettable.
