Located in the Canadian Rockies, surrounded by vast expanses of ski terrain and boasting some of the driest and most abundant champagne powder in Canada, Golden is a paradise for the serious skier.
At the heart of six of Canada’s most stunning national parks, Banff, Yoho, Jasper, Glacier, Kootenay and Mount Revelstoke, Golden offers some of the best scenery and outdoor adventure in the world.
Heli-skiing was born in Golden’s backyard, and today is home to four heli-skiing outfits and one cat-skiing operation, offering single to multi-day packages, with or without lodging.
Recognized as the ski touring capital of the world, Golden and the surrounding area has twenty-eight backcountry lodges offering every conceivable type of terrain and exposure, all with spectacular views. Some lodges even allow you to book exclusively, so why not bring your friends and enjoy the lodge and the pristine snow to yourselves.
