Evenings will be spent enjoying great food, socializing in cozy hut surroundings and resetting for the next day’s skiing. Food supplies will be flown in by helicopter (no dehydrated stuff here) and cooked up by our dedicated chef. All meals are designed to be healthy, sumptuous and plentiful and special dietary needs can be accommodated. Because we want you to be able to focus on the powder not the cooking!
The Fairy Meadow Hut is truly one of the jewels in the crown of the ACC's hut network. Perched on a bench deep in the Selkirks and surrounded by granite spires, glaciers and powder slopes, it is the quintessential base for a week of ski touring. The hut is very comfortable with a wood stove, propane lighting, ever-popular sauna and comfortable outhouses located just outside the hut - the perfect setting for apres-ski relaxation!
The ever-popular Conrad Janzen leads our team of three ACMG certified guides who will ensure your time at Fairy Meadow is both safe and enjoyable. All our guides come back year after year so are super knowledgable about the area and welcome to answering any questions. Our low guiding ratios (maximum 16 participants to 3 guides) allow us to form groups based on abilities and ambition, making sure the pace and difficulty is right for you.
The ACC hires guides certified by the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG). Visit the ACMG website to learn more about what they do!
