Not just a national park, Waterton is part of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park in conjunction with Glacier National Park in Montana. The international border adds complication but we want to ski the American’s steep lines and fresh powder.
In 1967 a crew of young Canadian skiers linked the high glaciers between Jasper and Lake Louise into a three-week backcountry adventure. Over 40 years later, a young group of Canadian skiers travelled to a Chilean volcano to film unreal lines into its crater. The true trips couldn’t be more different, but they were so much the same.
Martin Lefebvre, who’s been guiding the camps for almost a decade, and Eric Hjorleifson have a lot to teach would-be backcountry skiers, so we asked their campers to chime in with some of the best advice they’ve received from the duo.
InEverything or Nothing, Jérémie Heitz and Sam Anthamatten venture to ski four of the world’s most impressive mountain ranges: the Swiss Alps, Peru’s Cordillera Blanca, Pakistan’s Karakoram range and the Tibetan Himalayas in their personal freeride style.
