Backcountry Skiing

El Gato offers ski touring and ski mountaineering trips in Western Canada. Trips vary from ski touring out of a nice hotel in the Bow Valley or Rogers Pass, weeklong backcoutry lodge trips, mutli-day ski traverses or ski mountaineering in a remote location. Félix also guides for the Alpine Club of Canada and works with other local guides on many trips.

Heli-skiing trips can also be organized at Eagle Pass Heli-Skiing (deep cold-smoke in the Monashees) or Last Fronstier Heli-Skiing (deep coastal powder and big alpine runs). Please e-mail for more info or to organize a trip.

Private guiding and custom trips start at $400/day for 2 people. Please e-mail or phone (403-609-1526) for more information or to discuss options.

Check out the article in the Globe and Mail on a trip to the Colombia Icefield that Félix was guiding in Spring of 2010.
