Itinerary:

6 days of backcountry skiing at some sweet spots in west Kootenay. There will be complex avalanche terrain. 1 night of winter camping if not too cold ie-15 (it's much milder out there than Alberta). This is so we can ski summit Mt Brennan and enjoy a >1500 vertical meter powder ski decent

DAY 1: On the drive out we'll stretch the legs with a ski tour at Kootenay Pass, spending the night at Hotel Ymir. Take in the Friday night Hillbilly Jam session and dinner special in the pub.
DAYS 2-5: Day trips based out of B&B near Kaslo, minutes from ski objectives. Winter camp for one night.
DAY 6: Stop for more turns at Kootenay Pass or elsewheres on the drive back to Alberta.

Accommodations approx $30/night for hotel Ymir and B&B.

Winter camping experience not required but you need suitable gear. I can help with any questions.
