This adventure is about getting the most out of big mountain riding. Our certified guides provide specialized training tailored to each rider’s level. From first time riders to professional rippers, our experienced crew will increase your confidence in the snow on our Ski-Doo machines.

What to pack

 

  • Layered outerwear. A 3-layer system is used in all conditions, base layer, mid layer and outer layer.
  • Insulated jackets and pants are far too warm for our riding conditions. Base layer under garments made from Merino Wool provide the best balance of warmth and comfort while wicking sweat off your body.
  • A packable down jacket works well as a mid layer.
  • For the outer layer, CKMP guides wear Ski-Doo Helium 30 and 50 jackets and pants.
  • Ski-Doo Mountain Gloves or Backcountry Gloves are worn by all our guides and are recommended.
  • Persimmon dual-lens goggles provide optimal visibility in all light and snow conditions.

Most sizes of jackets and pants (Helium 30) are available for rent. Please contact us to make sure we have sizes available for you. Each costs $15 per day.
