Hurley Mountain Lodge

Snowcat accessed ski touring in the Hurley Pass

Just north of Whistler BC, where the Coast range transition into the Chilcotin mountains lies the Hurley pass area. Known amongst locals as some of the best snowmobile accessed terrain and to pro skiers where they can film the lines of the year.  However, known to us as our next ski trip destination of the year.

Join us for a 4-day snowcat accessed ski touring trip based out of the Hurley Mountain Lodge.  We are teamed up with Backcountry snowcats to offer these very exclusive ski touring trips.

Ditch the crowds of Whistler and the commute to the trailhead for 3 night, 4 days of all-inclusive, guided backcountry touring in some of the most epic terrain the Coast has to offer.

The Skiing

Hurley Mountain Lodge - Perfectly positioned in the South Chilcotin Mountains of British Columbia, Canada. The weather here is colder and drier than nearby Whistler, but with all of the same storm cycles. The result is cold, dry snow, and lots of it - it snows on average 10 meters (32 feet) per season, accumulating up to 3.5 meters (11.5 feet) base.

Accessing the goods with the help of snowcat or snowmobile our guides will lead you to the best terrain to rip up all that perfect powder.
