This website was created to provide information regarding backcountry skiing in and around Banff National Park. After writing two guidebooks focused on specific areas near the town of Banff I realized that creating an online database would serve not only the public but also myself better in the long term. Unlimited pictures, map overlays and up to date information were just a few of the benefits a website had over a written book.

Currently I have added the information found in my last guidebook which can still be found on my personal page www.confessionsofaskibum.com along with some of the more common ski zones and lines found in and around Banff National Park. I hope to continue to grow the database along with it's audience in the future. If you are interested in helping with this project in any way please feel free to contact me form at the bottom right of this page.
