How To Book

Before You Book

You dream it, we plan it. Simple.

Safety first, but fun is number one! Our team of experienced local ACMG Guides and staff will tailor a backcountry touring trip suitable for your ski skills and fitness. 

We work off ratios. The more friends you bring, the better the price and the better the experience! Our ratios are at least 1 guide for every 5 guests. Prices are based on a per person per day basis (taxes not included)

This page focuses on our private guiding day trips. If you are seeking more of an adventure check out our Lodge Trips & Traverses.


Get your guiding requests in earlier than later, and score the best times of the season to experience the West Kootenays!
