A ski tourer's dream roadtrip between 2 legendary Canadian mountain towns.
The Canadian Rockies have everything ski tourers look for - reliable and cold snow, huge terrain and easy access. All of these ski tours demonstrate those traits and each one can be done as a single day trip from a major road.
The route you'll drive to ski all of these doesn't follow Highway 1 all the way, but for much of the trip you will be on Canada's most famous road and it makes logistics pretty easy because you're never too far from accommodation and services. Despite this proximity to civilisation, the ski tours listed here all feel truly wild and encapsulate what Canadian ski touring is all about.
If you're lucky enough to have time not only to ski these lines but also to explore the Rockies further, check out these 2 hut to hut tours in the Yoho National Park.
