Haberl Hut: Tantalus Ski Touring

The Tantalus Range offers a wide variety of ski touring and ski mountaineering objectives from gentle glacier runs to steep couloirs and fluted faces all surrounded by picturesque granite peaks and glaciers.

Haberl Hut: Tantalus Ski Touring

The Tantalus Ski Touring trips starts with a quick helicopter flight from the Squamish Airport to deposit you at the picturesque Jim Haberl Hut in the heart of the Tantalus Range. Situated in the Serratus-Dione Col at an elevation of 2,030 metres it’s the perfect base camp for exploring the amazing ski touring and mountaineering objectives in the area. These include Mt. Dione, Serratus and Alpha, all of which are visible from the Tantalus lookout on the Sea-to-Sky highway. Even better, after we ski for a few days out of the Haberl Hut tagging some local peaks with the Howe Sound at our feet we can end the trip at the Tantalus Hut and have the heli bump us back up to collect our gear!

TantalusWe run numerous multi-day Tantalus ski touring trips every year starting in March as that's when the Haberl Hut opens for the season. Variations of the trip can include a traverse of the range or a steeps specific trip.
