You’re on a sailboat, crossing a large expanse of inland sea. In the distance are snow-capped mountains, steadily growing right out of the water. As you enter the mouth of the inlets, they tower above you on all sides.
Anchored as far in as possible, it’s time to go up - on foot through lush temperate rainforest, on ski up the gully to base camp, and up the ridges towards your goal. You are on your way to ski one of the more remote and stunning landscapes North America has to offer.
It’s not always the perfect weather. It’s not always the perfect snow conditions. It is always the perfect adventure.

Sail Bainbridge is a single-vessel, private charter company owned and operated by Captain Ben Doerr. Based out of Bainbridge Island, the company began with a focus on day sails and multi-day excursions throughout Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands.
With an eye for adventure, Captain Ben noted that sailing doesn’t need to be confined to the summer months, and a sailboat can provide the perfect platform for a deeper exploration of our region and all it has to offer.
Following a discussion over a few beers, the idea was launched, sponsorship secured, a team assembled and a pilot trip successfully executed.
It turns out there is snow in British Columbia, and you can get to it by sail boat - and now you can join us!
