Working a small film project over the winter, would like to focus on the okanagan. Home base is kelowna/bigwhite and silverstar. We are from ontario and are looking at getting into some backcountry touring in the okanagan ( something that has not been filmed very often) Looking into day trips mostly , maybe a few over nights if need be . Would love to chat or even meet up head out get some turns and lil filming in and a little exposure if you're looking for it.
This seems to be the only site out there with any info on the subject, i understand by reading just about evey el hefe post on the net that big white has some decent slackcountry and the back side ( and east peak) looks pretty epic. When it comes to off resort however i am lost and have no idea where to even start.I have been skiing for 15 yrs so i am quite and stong skier and could take on challenging terrain even though i have only skied steeps and the odd ( very odd) chute out on the canadian shield. I have a backroads map book just need to know where to look. Any one ski grandy prov park? Looks like some good lines to be had there.
If anyone has info, wants ski buddies or even play tour guide for some epic turns please do let me know
