The meadows and mountains around Assiniboine Lodge offer the best traditional ski touring in the Canadian Rockies for you to explore with our certified ACMG ski guides. From rolling meadows to alpine summits, Assiniboine has it all. *Note that guide service is only available for guests of Assiniboine Lodge. There are no extra guides available for Naiset Hut guests.
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.
Learn how to alpine tour or how about some light touring? Assiniboine's fully certified ACMG ski guides will cater the day to suit your ability and interest including snowshoeing, cross country skiing and more. Your safety is our number 1 priority and we provide all Assiniboine Lodge guests with the safety gear you will need (avalanche becons, shovels and probes) and some basic training on how to use it.
