Product Description

The Argentine glacier area is located in the heart of the Northern Selkirk’s just South of Mt Sir Sandford. There is a group of glaciers; Argentine, Centurion, Pyrite, Bear, Twin & Sonata glaciers and a few skiable peaks and tree runs with Peak to creek runs up to 1500m +. A quick flight from Golden B.C. puts us in the heart of Selkirk ski country!

The ski week will be tent based with a large dome tent for cooking, drying gear and relaxing in, sleeping quarters will be shared (2 per tent) in large 4 person tents. We will be flying in and out of the camp location by helicopter. All the skiing will be done as day trips from the base camp with light packs. The Base camp elevation is at approximately 1900 m with amazing views in all directions! See the Rockies like never before.

    :

    Spring camping up high on the Freshfields is an amazing experience. The skiing is great and the views are nothing short of stupendous. Jeff knows how to make snow camping enjoyable with roomy personal tents, a roomy group dome tent which is ideal for meals and hunkering down comfortably in a storm, plus delicious home cooked meals with nothing other than fresh food (no dehydrated stuff!). Skiing options are numerous and include some great peaks if the weather cooperates. Jeff is a great guide and he works non stop to meet everyone’s expectations. Recommend this trip!!!
