Mystery Creek Big Mountain Ski Camp
Spring skiing in the Coast range is what we personally consider the highlight of the year! Our first spring trips we are heading in to the rarely travel Mystery Creek Zone north of Whistler BC. Since this area is only accessed by helicopter we will have our pick of the area, big peaks, expansive glaciers and ski lines for weeks.
We will be camping just above tree line with a comfy tent town set up.
