Ultimate Early Season Camps

While January is known as the deepest and best time of the season to be here, December delivers as much or more snow on average. The backcountry however can be limited at this time due to the thick Japanese bush that requires ample coverage, but the good news is that the ski runs are still relatively free of powderhounds and the our team knows the best places to take you on any given day.
