Two day Revelstoke and Rogers Pass tour itinerary
Day 1 Revelstoke Mountain Resort Backcountry RBG and the guide team will meet the group at in the Sutton Place Lobby at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. RBG has exclusive early lift access that allows us to board before the lifts open to the general public. We’ll cover an avalanche and backcountry safety briefing then spend the day exploring the backcountry terrain that surrounds the resort.
Day 2 Rogers Pass, Glacier National Park Our guides will pick you up at your accommodation and drive 45 minutes East to Glacier National Park. There you’ll spend the day ascending up to 3.5 hours exploring the majestic terrain at Rogers Pass in Glacier National Park. The exciting and varied terrain of Rogers Pass offers everything from high alpine glaciers to old growth tree skiing.
Our “open group” two day program is offered beginning every Friday throughout the winter.
Revelstoke and the surrounding Selkirks are a complex range with challenging terrain and logistics. Think of our team as your local connection. We are looking forward to helping you maximize your experience in Revelstoke on and off the snow.
We work hard to see that our skiers and riders are matched well. After years of experience with private and open groups of skiers and climbers from all around the world, we feel confident that if they are willing to walk uphill for powder skiing, they’ll be great people.
All of RBG’s trips are low ratio, small group programs. Our tours offer the complete experience by including unequaled professional guiding in a variety of local terrain, freshly prepared, mostly organic lunches, ski touring specific lift access at RMR and group transportation between downtown Revelstoke and Rogers Pass.
Our guides happily accommodate novice backcountry travelers, however all of our trips involve significant uphill travel using skis and skins or a splitboard. We recommend that skiers have advanced downhill abilities and are capable of skiing most piste runs. Snowboarders should be expert level riders capable of anticipating changes in terrain.

We are available for guided skiing in the region from December to May. Below are some seasonal generalizations.
December- Mid January Days are short and typically filled with deep cold snow. Historically, Revelstoke is one of the best places for early season powder skiing with excellent coverage and regular storm skiing. Sunny days tend to be scarce. The mountains are typically less crowded and lodge space and local accommodations are more readily available.
Mid January-Early March Heart of the season with typically deep snowpack (2-4meters) and reliable powder skiing conditions with chances for better visibility. February is the high season with very limited last minute availability.
Mid March-Mid April Early spring conditions with equal chances at sunny alpine conditions with excellent snow or spring powder skiing. Generally rock climbing and mountain biking areas in Revelstoke become dry enough for multisport days.
Late April- May Spring ski mountaineering season with corn skiing and big overnight objectives. Mountains can be in excellent condition at the higher elevations. Tent based or traverse type programs are ideal at this time of year with many of our guides traveling to higher elevation zones or more Northern latitudes.
We know the local options and can help you plan other aspects of your trip. Think of us as your powder concierge.
