Safety

Again, remember these are the mountains. There are hazards. We do ski in avalanche terrain. There are cliffs, cornices, trees, rocks and numerous other hazards. It’s our job, with your cooperation, to keep you safe. Due to the unpredictable nature of skiing in the mountains though, there is still some risk. After all, that’s part of the appeal of the backcountry. Our guides are extremely experienced, having skied in these mountains for more than 2 decades. They carry certification from world recognized bodies including the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides, the Canadian Avalanche Association and the Backcountry Lodges of British Columbia Association.

Access to Dezaiko Lodge is by helicopter only. Flying in the mountains in winter is a very serious business. The pilots that do our flying have many years of mountain flying experience. We never question their decision whether to fly or not. It doesn't happen very often, but there are times when because of weather conditions, flying just isn't possible on the day scheduled. Please make sure you consider that possibility when planning your trip.
