      Hut traverses were born in Europe, where groups like the Swiss Alpine Club began building and managing high-mountain shelters as early as the mid 19 th century. And while North America can’t hold a candle to Europe’s extensive mountain-chalet infrastructure and deep hut heritage, there are more than backcountry huts, lodges and yurts throughout the U.S. and Canada. BC's backcountry offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience Mother Nature in all her glory. Backcountry skiing is the purest form of skiing and it is a more environmentally sound and much less expensive way of experiencing the backcountry than the mechanized approach.

      Backcountry huts in British Columbia Adventure travel shows this winter Q: The provincial parks and the Canadian Alpine Club have excellent hut systems in the Rockies . Esplanade Track – Hut to Hut Hiking Linking alpine cirques, lakes and meadows, the Esplanade Track follows the skyline of one of British Columbia’s most beautiful ranges. Running parallel to the Canadian Rockies, the Track offers exceptional panoramic views of the Rockies’ most famous peaks: Robson, Columbia and Assiniboine.

    Hut-to-Hut Adventures. Many of Banff's backcountry huts and lodges are standalone locations that serve a particular area, but some are designed to be linked in multi-day hikes, mountaineering. Cosy backcountry lodges and alpine huts are perfect for multi-day ski touring, and backcountry ski guides ensure safe travel through mountain terrain. If you are an experienced backcountry skier, some provincial and national parks offer designated backcountry areas with amenities that include overnight huts, picnic areas, and open-air shelters.
