Terrace feels like Revelstoke 20 years ago, but because of its relative remoteness from large centres of population it’s unlikely to change much in the coming years. The huts will stay quiet, the powder filled bowls will stay largely untracked.
Sited perfectly at gladed tree line, the Anderson cabin provides super-fast access to cold powder on the north facing slopes of the regions higher peaks. The excellent Baldwin map of the area gives a good starting point to the region, but at its’ heart this is wilderness skiing. Explore with Fatmap the endless chute and drainage options available here. Scope a line, skin to its top, drop the line. Repeat.
Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.
