The Big Picture
The primary objective of the trip is to put skis to snow on the slopes above British Columbia’s Princess Louisa Inlet - a destination only accessible by boat - but the journey is so much more.
Setting sail from US waters, wending our way through the Canadian Gulf Islands, across the Strait of Georgia, and into the fjordlands of British Columbia is an unforgettable experience.
Then it’s up up up, with skis on our backs, through some of the most stunning temperate rainforest you’ll ever experience. When we reach snow, just below the tree line, you will have earned it.
We’ll skin up to base camp, where we’ll set up shop to support the next couple days of skiing. From base camp we have the choice of a few different ridge lines, offering a variety of skiing.
Weather and conditions dependent, each journey will vary, but every one will be an adventure!
Adventure seekers of all types will find their place on our trips. Be it your first all-terrain experience, or an all-out summit bid full of big slopes hopes - our focus is on building an unforgettable trip for you.
Beyond sailing and skiing, our trips offer the opportunity for guided hikes, stand-up paddle boarding, and relaxing in remote and secluded anchorages. The level of activity is up to you.

The good ship TRUE comes from the design desk of world-renowned naval architect, John G. Alden, who designed over 1000 boats, including the majestic schooners of the 1930s and 40s. His work, without question, represents great American boat design, and our 44-foot Pearson Countess Ketch, TRUE, is no exception.
She is a sturdy, ocean-going vessel, masterfully designed for moving through calm and rough seas alike, with grace and ease, carrying you safely and comfortably on your journey.
While accommodations are shared and simple, you’ll find everything you need from pressure hot and cold water and refrigeration to charging for electronics and a wood-fired stove for those chilly evenings and mornings.
A Note About the Weather
We can make our plans, but we can not control the weather
Weather and snow conditions can be unpredictable and fast-changing. Our crew are trained and experienced professionals in their fields, and will always make safety priority number one. With this in mind, plans must always remain flexible - and while we build contingencies, extra time, and alternate options into our planning, there is never a guarantee of skiing, or reaching any particular destination. Keeping a willing mind, and a positive disposition towards changing plans will ensure a successful trip for everyone involved. We can’t control the weather, but we can guarantee an adventure!
