CHRISTIANA TREES

Francis Lariviere Photography

Some of the best tree skiing in Rogers Pass can be found here. A lot of it is low angle, but there are plenty of fun bits in here. The Fidelity Winter Prohibited Area wraps around the site and top of Christiana Shoulder so be sure to check the boundaries!

Noteables: glades, storm skiing, low angle

ROUTE DESCRIPTION

Park at the Bostock Day Use Area and follow the Bostock summer trail. Rather than cutting off the trail for McGill Shoulder, continue along the summer trail for about 2.5km. There should be a couple of noticeably large runs down to the creek from the summer trail at this point. Enjoy a short ski down to the creek, then skin up Christiana Shoulder. The tree skiing all around this shoulder is quite nice. Be careful not to climb too high, as the Fidelity Prohibited Area wraps around the top portion of Christiana. Also, while skiing down, be sure not to cross over the drainage and into the Fidelity Prohibited Area.

Route Option: Head up McGill Shoulder and ski one of the runs off that, then head down to the creek for a lap on Christiana!
