The Cariboo Ski Touring Club has all the info you need for accessing the backcountry in the Wells/Barkerville area. To get into the zones east of Williams Lake and 100 Mile, local beta is the way to go – stop by Red Shreds Bike and Board Shed and hook up with a crew heading out.
The backcountry is always epic, and always amazing. It’s also serious business – avalanches are always a possibility, so keep an eye on conditions, bring your avi gear and, most importantly, know how to use it!
