Hurley Mountain Lodge

Snowcat Accessed Ski Touring in the Hurley Pass

Just north of Whistler, BC, where the Coast range transitions into the Chilcotin mountains, lies the Hurley Pass area. The area is known amongst locals as some of the best snowmobile accessed terrain. It's a go-to area for pro skiers to film the lines of the year.  To us, it's known as our next ski trip destination of the year. Join us for a 4-day snowcat access 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 nights and 4 days of all-inclusive, snowcat assisted guided backcountry touring in some of the most epic terrains the Coast has to offer.

The Skiing

Hurley Mountain Lodge is 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 an average of 10 meters (32 feet) per season, accumulating a base of up to 3.5 meters (11.5 feet).

After accessing the goods with a snowcat or snowmobile, our guides will lead you to the best terrain to rip up all that perfect powder.
