The meadows and mountains around Assiniboine Lodge offer the best traditional ski touring in the Canadian Rockies. From rolling meadows to alpine summits, Assiniboine has it all.
A classic day at Assiniboine includes traversing scenic meadows with the great peak towering above you, climbing to some high viewpoint then sliding and turning through powder back to the lodge. There is something for everyone: a short tour to Lizzie Rummel’s historic cabin, an ascent of the Nublet with its terrific views, powder turns in Terrapin Bowl or a climb to the summit of Ellie’s Dome.
Located on the Continental Divide, the Mount Assiniboine area gets several metres of deep powder snow each year.
