The Fairy Meadow Powder Week is your chance to spend a week enjoying once-in-a-lifetime skiing at the renowned Fairy Meadow Hut! Situated in the Adamant Range of the Selkirk Mountains and called “THE backcountry ski destination in Canada” by Chic Scott, the Bill Putnam (Fairy Meadow) Hut is a sought-after destination for its spectacular scenery, long glacier runs, and abundant ski-mountaineering opportunities.
Easily accessed from the hut, the high cols between the Adamants offer world-famous skiing, accessing the Gothic Glacier, the Granite Glacier and many nearby peaks. Mountaineering objectives in the area include East Pioneer (3,164 m), Mt. Sir William (3,002 m), Sentinel Peak (3,033 m), Colossal (2,940 m), and Enterprise (2,910 m). This camp is geared toward climbing peaks as well as skiing great powder, often in the same day.
The challenge of ascending summits and high cols is rewarded by breathtaking views; long, uninterrupted runs back to the hut; a wood-fired sauna; and hot drinks and delicious meals prepared at the hut by the group’s chef. Short runs close to the hut also offer opportunities for practicing turns, enjoying shorter days of tree skiing and getting out during spells of bad weather.
Apres-ski time at the hut will give you a chance to socialize, relax by the wood-burning fireplace, grab some sauna time, and enjoy gourmet dinners. All meals are prepared by a camp chef and are designed to be healthy, sumptuous and plentiful. Special dietary needs can be accommodated.
The three experienced guides will be able to divide the group based on abilities and ambition, keeping the camp safe and the skiing satisfying for everybody. We can’t wait to see you all out there!
