Earlier this year I spent a week at Roger's Pass, exploring the zone with ski guide Greg Hill and the Finding The Line crew. After a few days of high temperatures and some liquid snow up high, we were surprised to still find powder up high. Following the trip, I did some research on the history of this incredible natural powder resource and wrote a story about the pass for Snowsbest.com. Check it out below!
Located near the state line of the British Columbia and Alberta, Rogers Pass connects the towns of Golden, and Revelstoke. Well known for its rugged, steep and diverse terrain, coupled with the highest average annual snowfall in Canada (12 meters per year on average), it is no wonder that the numbers of winter backcountry visitors rose to 17 000 visitors in 2016.
However, it is not skiing that first made Rogers Pass famous.
