South Coast Glaciers, Fall 2023:

We flew a bunch of the glaciers along the South Coast / Sea-to-Sky area this fall to get a feel for what they look like without a few meters of snow hiding all the crevasses. Given how fast our glaciers are changing with the warmer climate we felt it was worth taking a look at these once very familiar areas to see what’s different to help with our decision making over the winter. We’re hoping to do this every summer/fall so be sure to check back. All these photos are set up to be downloaded so feel free to take them with you on your phone when you’re out skiing/riding or mountaineering.

If you’re interested in getting out and exploring some of the amazing glaciated terrain that the coast has to offer but want a bit of training first (Caution: Self-Serving Plug!) we run a few courses every year: Black Sheep Adventure Glacier Course.

We’ve also written a few articles on our Gear Review website that are related to crevasse rescue and glacier travel equipment that you might find useful:
