Trip of a Lifetime: Tent-Based Backcountry Skiing with Capow

By Chris Pew on
  • This is going to be in-tents... 

Our friends at Capow Guiding are launching their first tent-based backcountry skiing and snowboarding trip this March. A helicopter will fly you into a remote area near Revelstoke, BC, and leave you for 4 days .of InTensive living and shredding. This is next-level backcountry adventure at it's finest.

To top celebrate their maiden voyage, we're offering a free pair of TREWth Bibs or Capow Jacket (or Chariot Bibs or Stella Jacket for the ladies) to anyone that signs up for the 4 remaining spots on the March 18-22 trip.

Request more info about the InTents trip here. Or by emailing

We'll coordinate with the Capow team to get you in some new gear. 

More InTents info from Capow

"The location will largely depend on conditions, so we’re not going to tell you where it is yet.  You just have to trust us on where we know will be the best.  Our options are vast, but what is constant is a timeframe, group size and camp set up.  We will base all trips near Revelstoke.  Early morning meet up in revy, drive to a staging area and heli access the camp.  

The camp set up is more like a mobile village.  We’ll have different tents for sleeping, cooking and hanging out.  It’s basically as comfortable as it gets for winter camping.

We won’t keep the location constant.  But what will remain is the CAPOW vibe and adventure of opening up new terrain."

Is this too InTents for me?

Capow is looking for people that are fit and with backcountry experience, but the actual touring will be comparable to other hut trips. You don't need to have any prior winter camping experience, but you have to understand that living and sleeping in a tent in the winter environment is more uncomfortable than regular camping. As far as camping goes, this will be as plush as it gets.

Should I go? 

YES! GO!!! This is a rare opportunity to explore new zones with a rad crew and to push your personal backcountry experience to a new level. Oh yeah, and there will be powder. Lots of powder. And no one else there to ride it but you...
