The Rogers Pass backcountry is one of the largest and most accessible backcountry ski playgrounds on the planet. It lies between Revelstoke and Golden, British Columbia in the storied Selkirk Mountains and boasts an annual snowfall in excess of 40 feet. If you have ever ski toured on the Pass, you know how vast it is and how quickly you can find yourself faced with more options than you could possibly ski. One dedicated Rogers Pass skier by the name of Douglas Sproul has been exploring the Pass for 20+ years and, more recently, working to document and develop a Rogers Pass ski guidebook and atlas for the area. He successfully launched a digital edition for Andriod devices last year. You can read more about Sproul and the depth of his project in, Rogers Pass 411, an article that appeared in Off-Piste in March 2014.
This season, Sproul has launched a kickstarter campaign to fund a full-color, printed edition of his book, Rogers Pass – Uptracks, Bootpacks and Bushwhacks. We were able to preview the digital edition last year. This thorough guide is full of photos, custom maps and overview imagery with runs and peak names; it is the bible of the Rogers Pass backcountry. Help fund the campaign and get yourself a signed copy!
