It’s hard to overstate the backcountry skiing terrain of Rogers Pass, British Columbia. Think massive faces, steep couloirs, great tree skiing, terrifying yet enticing avalanche slide paths, and playful pillows. Oh, and it’s all covered in legendary interior BC powder. Thanks to Douglas Sproul, it’s now also hard to overstate the area’s guidebook. Rogers Pass is a complex area but Sproul's incredibly helpful aerial photos and succinct descriptions enable you to easily dream up your ideal ski day. After one trip, US citizens might just find themselves looking for a Canadian spouse in order to get a green card and live out their days on the pass.
