Rogers Pass has become a legendary destination for backcountry skiers. And for good reason: located in the heart of Canada’s Glacier National Park, the average annual snowfall is close to 400 inches, and the accessible terrain includes ski summits, alpine bowls, glades, and glaciers. Single ski runs can extend in excess of 3000 vertical feet! All ski destinations require travel in avalanche terrain and most require travel in complex, glaciated terrain as well. In other words, this is the perfect trip for advanced skiers to hire an AMGA Certified Ski Guide to get the most out of your time on the Pass!
