Come along as the crew from the Freeride Chronicles hits the Backcountry in search of epic powder turns. Their first stop brings them north, deep into the Interior of British Columbia for a few days at Monashee Powder Snowcats. A foot of fresh snow falls during their travel day to the lodge and the crew knows their timing couldn’t be better.

After a fun stay at Monashee the crew boards a plane and heads further into British Columbia to Terrace for a few days of heli and cat skiing at Northern Escape Heli. The community of Terrace, once known for it’s logging, has transformed into a powder skiing destination.

The opportunity to spend a few nights in a yurt in the Montana Backcountry doesn’t come around too often, so when Great Northern Powder Guides Backcountry Yurt opened up, the Freeride crew and friends loaded up and made their way to the outskirts of Whitefish, Montana. Unfortunately, the days the trip was scheduled turned out to be record highs of 50 degrees in the valley. This group of friends wasn’t going to let the warm weather put a damper on their adventure.

The town of Kaslo sits on the majestic shores of Kootenay Lake in British Columbia. We soon found out this is the perfect spot to base a heli-skiing operation from. Stellar Heli-skiing has been flying guests out of this location for almost 10 years and we had to see what all the hype was about.

Join us on another adventure with the Freeride Chronicles.
