Canada Ski Mountaineering - Blue Square Productions

Forever Young Couloir, Youngs Peak

Canada Ski Mountaineering

This expedition is for the self-powered powder hound, looking to up their game Canadian-style. We are going to base out of Golden, British Columbia, and ski where the pow is deepest. Golden is located in the heart of the best snow in the world...seriously. Via self-powered touring we will leave the crowds behind. There is a good chance you'll be tempted to quit your job, and become a full time ski bum in Golden after this trip....you've been warned!

We will be basing out of a house in Golden. This allows for fun apres, drying out the gear for the next day, and a comfy place to recover. There are 100's amazing objectives within 60 miles of the house. 

Get stoked for winter!!!
