Default TR - Whitecap Alpine 3-1/2 days of touring

Whitecap Alpine is situated in a broad valley just North of Pemberton offering both Alpine and Tree skiing for skiable terrain in all kinds of weather and conditions.

Its proximity to Pemberton makes is a convenient destination for those who can not, for whatever reason, embark on a one week trip – whether it be the two day travel time to get to the Interior, the one week in a remote hut or people who may not know if they can handle such a trip.

Whitecap offers the same experience in a less intimidating package. That being said, you can also stay for a week to truly explore the vast terrain.

Here is day one of our trip:

our snow donkey!


Short ski day today!



BEST PEE TREE EVER!



nice thing about huts, it leaves lots of time to rest and relax! and you don't have to cook!


Hiking is ok when you can't ski or ride

I am unclear as to which was more important - the skiing or food. []

Canapés are food porn. Looks like the rest of your day was great too!
