Epic alpine journeys can be crossed off your bucket list in the wilds of the North Thompson Valley. Untamed and off the beaten path, yet still within easy reach of each of our destinations, the Canadian alpine crowns our mountain slopes. In winter it’s covered in deep, deep blankets of snow — perfect for dropping in on two skis. In summer the alpine transforms with ribbons of colour and robust wildlife blanketing the wavy ranges with a painter’s palette of blossoms beneath snow-capped glaciers. Explore these wide-open spaces any way you can: by helicopter, on horseback and ATV, or powered by your own two feet. Finding your stride in our alpine is easy — it’s the leaving that’s so hard.
