Off piste or slack country skiing has inherent risks, with quick access available to many skiers from the use of chair lifts and ducking ropes in to the un controlled back country it’s no surprise people get into trouble with avalanches.
Using the lifts to access the backcountry is an efficient way to get fresh powder riding, the Alpine Air guides are certified ski & mountain guides with years of local knowledge who will get you to the best riding. The Lake Louise “slack country” has amazing easy access terrain with long fall line ski runs such as Purple bowl, Pumpkin bowl, Wolverine ridge, the National Geo-graphics, Corral paths and West bowl among others.
These days are great for any strong on hill skier or snowboarder, there may be in some cases traverses to get back to the lifts or use of touring gear depending on the group. Ski instruction is available during the day as guides are CSIA certified.
Let the Alpine Air guides lead you from the ski hill into the backcountry and back safely.
