Ski straight to the sea in Norway or keep B.C.’S backcountr­y all to yourself. Choices, choices...


Where do you have to go to spend a day ski touring and mountainee­ring without running into another person? Deep in the backcountr­y outside of Smithers, in northweste­rn B.C. That’s where photograph­er Mattias Fredriksso­n ventured with local mountain guide Michael Brackenhof­er and Danielle Willhoeft last season to explore the backside of the Hudson Mountain Range. In this shot, the pair ascend a chute to Turquoise Ridge to ski their next line. “It was a beautiful and very long day of ski touring and ski mountainee­ring,” Fredriksso­n recalls. “We did not see a single soul all day, which adds to the wild experience.”
